I only need it for mail clients.

I was rather expecting it to work like most ISP systems that I have encountered. ie. Internal clients don't need to authenticate but external clients do.

I have not been able to confirm how an external client functions today. but when I send an email from the office network, if the recipient is an internal mail box I don't need to set a username and password but if the recipient is external (eg anybody@hotmail.com) then I have to set username and password. It seems to accept any valid uname/psswd not just the one for the sending account.

If that is correct then I am happy.

Now I have to find out why the spam filter is not functioning!

Right now I'd sooner have a user manual than last weeks winning euromillions ticket!

Thanks for the help, I'll get there soon.
