eg. If you use Xtra to connect to the internet, then enter your outgoing mail to: smtp.xtra.co.nz. If you use Paradise.net to connect to the internet, then enter your outgoing mail to: smtp.paradise.net.nz. If you are unsure of your ISPs SMTP settings, then email or call your isp and ask them for the setting for their ‘Outgoing Mail Server’.

If you use cPanel, then you can also enter the outgoing mail to mail.yourdomain.co.nz, however you will need to tick ‘My server requires authorisation’ in the outgoing mailserver settings.[replace your yourdomain.co.nz with your domain name]
