Authentication Errors

Authentication Errors

This help guide assumes that you have configured your email client but are having authentication issues while sending or receiving email.

Solution 1

Make sure that you are using your full email address in the user name field. Using only your name will not work.

Not correct: User Name: jason

This is correct: User Name: jason@mydomain.co.za

You must also make sure that the incoming and outgoing mail servers are correct.They are normally named: mail.yourdomain.co.za. Make sure you know what domain to use – This will be the same as your website domain name.

E.g. If my website was named: www.abc.co.za, my mail server name would be: mail.abc.co.za

Note: If you are using an Outgoing mail server from your ISP (Company who manages your internet access), only the Outgoing mail server name will be different.
