2. Select the "Accounts" tab and select the Account you wish to configure.

3. Make sure the "Account Information" tab is selected. At the bottom of this screen there is a dropdown list for Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP). Select "Edit SMTP Server List".

4. To add a new SMTP server to the list click the plus icon (+) at the bottom of the window. Make sure the "Account Information" tab is selected.

5. Fill in anything you wish for "Description" (some name that will help you remember which SMTP server these settings refer to, such as your domain name) and under "Server Name" enter mail.example.com (replace "example.com" with your actual domain name).

6. Now click on the "Advanced" tab. For "Authentication" select "Password" and then enter your email username and password in the form.

7. You may want to select "Use custom port". Default SMTP port is 25, but if that does not work you might want to use 26 or 587 as the Powersurge servers listen on these alternative ports to provide a workaround for those ISPs that block Port 25.
