How can I send Emails when I am out of my office using my matilda email address?
If you have a matilda email address (@matilda.net.au, @cqnet.com.au, @moranbah.net.au, @cqnet.com.au, @cyberoz.com.au, @cyberinternet.com.au or @irock.com.au), then you can use the Matilda mailserver to send your emails through. Normally when you configure an email account in your mail program or on your mobile device, you do not need to use a username or password by default. If you try and send outside of the office however, you will notice that you won't be able to send an email, this is because of our security systems in place to stop unauthorized sending using our Matilda email server.
To fix your mail settings so that you can send emails, you will need to perform the following:
For a computer:
Open your mail program as usual. You will need to change your account settings for the outgoing mailserver to the following (in outlook, click on the Outlook menu at the top and choose Account settings, then choose your email account). For mac mail click on the mail menu at the top of the screen, then click on preferences and click on the accounts tab. Choose your email address and edit the settings to match below):
Outgoing server hostname: mail.matilda.net.au
Outgoing server uses SSL/TLS: Tick this option
Outgoing mailserver port: Change this from port 25 to 587
If there is an option to choose authentication or enter a username and password in, please either choose "same as incoming server" or enter in your email address and email password manually into here.
Authentication type needs to be changed from "none" to "password"
Save those settings and then you will be right to send emails from anywhere now.
