Mail Setup Problem

    I am running Plesk 8.1.1 on CentOS...

    I went into my Mac email client and setup my email account with this info:

    inbound: mail.hemptanicals.com
    outbound: mail.hemptanicals.com

    Port 25, no authentication, no SSL...

    I get this error:


    What am i doing wrong? is there some email setup instructions i cannot find? The knowledge base is no help. Thanks!

    Anyone? Are there step by step email setup instructions for both the plesk part and mail clients somewhere? I cannot find them.

    I checked the rcpthosts file and my domain is listed there, do I need to add mail.mydomain.com or just domain.com?

    I believe this is in the manual... But you need to use SMTP authentication with your email client, using the same username/password as the POP3.

    Some bits here,
    you need to go into your admin and in Server | Mail
    under 'Relaying' ensure it's set to 'authorization required' and 'POP 3 Lock Time' is set. Optionally, you may want to use 'SMTP' which allows you to do authed outgoing mail.
