    Now simply fill the fields(voices) as follows:

    a)Description: name that will be used to identify the server (oftenly it is best to use the email provider's, like Gmail or Yahoo).

    b)Server Name: the original SMTP server's specification. You can searching it on our list of server POP and SMTP.

    c)Port: SMTP works with port 25, but it can also work also with 587.

    d)Connection security:SMTP email transfer doesn't provide inbuilt encryption.To make your connection more secure, use STARTTLS or SSL/TLS extension as a good choice,this provides a separate port for encrypted communication.

    e)Authentication method: For this,there are certain number of methods like(passwords, CRAM-MD5, KERBEROS etc.).

    f) User Name: your email address.
