DO NOT check off or use SSL

If you run into a problem, it is most likely with the outgoing mail server. Many internet service providers (ISP's) will not let you use an outgoing server other than their own. You are already hooked up to the internet through your ISP - Whistler Web Design is NOT your ISP. You are likely already sending e-mail. If so, then it is usually easiest to use your existing settings for your outgoing server. Your e-mail will still have the return address of name@yourdomain.com. It is just that your own ISP is being used as the "postman".

However, if you would prefer to use our outgoing server, it really does not make much difference.
