But what if you don’t see your SMTP server settings here, what next?

What you need to do easy, you just need to know your email service provider and their server domain.

Here is how to do it;

How to find SMTP Email Server for an E-mail Address

If your email address is name@mognol.com, you can easily get your SMTP Email service.

First, there are common prefixes that can be added to an SMTP server domain to get it working. They are:

  1. SMTP
  2. Mail
  3. Smtpauth
  4. Outgoing
  5. Outbound

Remember that your email service provider’s domain name is “Mognol.com”.

So, to simply get its server, start by adding those prefixes aligned above (I-V). I’m sure that one will work perfectly for your SMTP Server settings.

After getting the email server domain, the next thing is to configure it.

Since your preferred SMTP server is not listed or explained here, I will have to teach you how to configure either the professional or free SMTP servers with a simple but general settings.

Here we go;

How to Configure Any Free SMTP servers
