As some of you may know, we have been experiencing some e-mail problems at BowieNet regarding an open relay issue. These include the rejection of BowieNet e-mail from AOL and other web services. We have already addressed the problem, and regret any inconvenience this issue has caused.
This is a two part process that will take time for us to resolve. Please note these important deatils:
1. If you use e-mail through the website (webmail) you do not need to make any adjustments. We appreciate your patience while we complete the process of removing BowieNet from the Open Realy relay databases.
2. If you use an e-mail client, such as MS Outlook, you will have to change your e-mail settings.
MS Outlook XP
On the menu, go to Tools > E-Mail Accounts > View or change existing e-mail accounts > Choose your BowieNet address > More Settings > Outgoing Server > Check ?My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."
MS Outlook Express
On menu, go to Tools > Accounts > Mail > then go to the properties for your BowieNet account.
a. click on the "Servers" tab
b. select "My server requires authentication"
Here are some screen grabs to help you along.
In Outlook, goto Tools > Accounts...
Select your BowieNet account and make these changes...
Then do this...
PLEASE NOTE: It will take us some time for the BowieNet e-mail address to be removed from the Open Relay databases. For more information, please check the BowieNet website for updates and further instruction on how to configure your e-mail client.
Again, our apologies for any inconvenience and our thanks for your patience while we fix the problem.
The Staff at BowieNet.
