I Can Receive but I Cannot Send out Emails

If you encounter problems in which you are not able to send out emails but can receive them, this could be due to your email application does not have Outgoing Server (SMTP) Authentication enabledBelow are the two most used email clients that encounter such errors. 


1. Open Outlook.
2. Click File tab.
3. Choose Account Settings, and click Account Settings... again.
4. Select the email address you’re having troubles with and click Change.
5. On the Change Email Account screen, click More Settings… button.
6. Choose Outgoing Server tab, and make sure that My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication is ticked.
6. Click OK, and then click Next. 

This will verify the settings and once you get two ticks for incoming and outgoing server settings, you’re good to go. 


1. Open Thunderbird.
2. Right-click on the email address you are having troubles with and choose Settings.
3. On the Account Settings screen, click on Outgoing Server (SMTP).

5. Ensure that your email address is correct on the User Name field.
