Internet sharing

By katn ·
I administer a Win98 peer to peer. Recently I set up internet sharing and all works well except for email. I can receive email on the client, but can't send. How do I set it up to send?

I run my laptop on a network at my office.
You need to setup your SMTP in what ever mail client you use.
for example if you use Prodigy you out going SMTP would be mail.prodigy.net. I'm asuming your using Windows 98 second edition IP sharing.

Go get a SMTP server for win 98 at www.download.com or www.winfiles.com. What internet sharing proggie do you use? Or you may use a socks proxy and sockscap (from www.socks.nec.com).Give us More info, more info....!!!

If you are using Win98SE Internet Connection Sharing, then try this. REMOVE ICS then reinstall it, it will pop up a wizard, use this wizard to create a disk to run on your other machines. If you have done this already, then ciberdann is right, you need to set up the smtp server on your workstations. If they all had an email account before, this should already be done. Check to make sure it is correct. Also check thier settings to see if they are accessing the internet through a LAN. This can be found in the Internet Options in the control panel. You don't need an SMTP server though. If you are NOT running Win98 ICS, and are using a proxy server, you will need to open up port 25 on the proxy and assign it to SMTP. Hope this helps. If youhave any questions about this brief answer, feel free to email me.

Because you can only receive your problem must be with the specification of the SMTP server name. Each ISP has 2 e-mail servers: 1 for incoming mail (sent by you) and one for outgoing mail (received by you.) Say your ISP's name is myisp; typical e-mail server names would be mail.myisp.com (for your incoming mail server) and smtp.myisp.com (for your outgoing mail.) Check the name of your outgoing mail server and make sure it matches the one specificed by your ISP.

I belong to more then one internet provider. I like to keep my Email with Easynet, but I connect to Rogers@home.com

I set my received mail (POP) mail.easynet.ca, I have to set my SMTP to the provider I'm connected to which would be mail.home.com
