- The “Email address” field should show your normal email address.
- The SMTP server should be “gateway.publicvpn.net”, or ‘188.8.131.52’ if your DNS server isn’t working.
- Allow authentication must be checked.
- The “Secure Sockets when Sending” should be set to “Required, STARTTLS”
- Optionallly, you can check “Use submission port” to use port 587 to send mail. You'd check this because some HotSpot vendors (like T-Mobile) try and reroute all SMTP traffic to their own servers. By checking this, you use PublicVPN.com’s secure server instead.
Setting up Eudora for Windows
Set up Eudora for Windows using these settings.
If your PublicVPN.com username isn't the same as your normal mail username, you'll have to create what Eudora calls a "Mail Relay Personality." For more information and instructions, see the article “SMTP Relay for Sending Mail (Windows)” at the Eudora website.
