Hello,

I hope my English is good enough to make myself understandable :)

I've just make an emailaccount in the DirectAdmin to put on my own website. Now I want to use it in a mailclient, but I need my server ISP for SMTP. Does anybody know where I can find that ISP?

Kind regards,
Marja

Why do you need your server ISP for SMTP? There are not many hosts restricting this as I'm aware of.

Normally you can use your domain's smtp. Example, your domain is marja.com then use smtp.marja.com as smtp server. Best is to use port 587 or 465 depending on the host.
Doesn't your host have instructions on how to setup mail for their customers?

By the way, if you are Dutch (Nederlands) just send me a PM, that talks a bit easier then English probably. I'm prepared to help you find out the correct settings.
However, your hoster should in fact provide this service for you.... just food for thought.
