G'day everyone

I'm on a 3 month holiday in the Netherlands and none of my South African ISPs's SMTP servers want to accept connections. I don't know what ISP I'm currently using here in the Netherlands. I urgently need to send mail via SMTP... can anyone recommend a cheap and/or good (!) SMTP service that is likely to work for me here?

Thanks!
Samuel

GMX works for me Dec 11, 2008

Apart from my own domain, I have been using GMX (www.gmx.net) for years in all of the countries I live or used to live in (including NL). Never had any problems.

These guys are really good (the best in Holland actually), but maybe not the cheapest.

Try calling 020-3987666 - that's their sales desk.

They're loaded with work, so you may need to wait on the phone a little.

The server is smtp.xs4all.nl, but you need a subscription, password and user name.

Works worldwide, at least for me.

webhosting smtp / webmail interface? Dec 11, 2008

Samuel, can't you just use your webhosting smtp? I prefer to be independent of ISPs, so that's what I do in Thunderbird, seems to work around the globe (I assume it would also work for Outlook). It looks like your webhosting for leuce.com is at gandinet.com? If I understand correctly, they apparently even have a webmail interface should the smtp settings fail.
