Where can I find the name of my SMTP mail server?

Outgoing Mail SMTP are provided to you by your ISPs or IT department. If your PCs can send emails, you can check it out by: Startup Outlook Express Select: >Tools  >Accounts  >Mail   >Options  >Properties  >Servers

Some examples of Outgoing Mail SMTP and some mail servers requires authentication before you can send-out (usually not required for receiving mails) any emails.

Sending mails through your ISPs mail server, the "Outgoing Mail SMTP" means that your ISPshave allocated a storage area specifically for your (email domain) emails to be stored there and then relayed out via their mail server to the recipient.

Therefore, they must give you some kind of "ID", password and SMTP mail server for you to access it.

If you are using your own PCs as a mail server, then you don't need to make use of your ISP SMTP mail server (to store and relay your email messages),

because you will be sending emails to your desktop PCs mail server program that is residing in your computer system (PCs) to be relayed out directly to the recipient mailbox and bypass your ISP mail server. See: PCs Mail Server
