How Do I Send Emails From Applications via DDNS Servers?
There are a number of ways you can configure your application to send mail via our systems.
- Non-authenticated local SMTP: Host=localhost port=25
- Authenticated local mail via SMTP: host: localhost, port: 587. Authentication is required with a username and password for one of your mail accounts. Encryption (SSL or TLS) is not required.
- Use PHP mail() function. This options comes with strings attached, emails sent from PHP using mail() will be subjected to grey listing (3 minutes) and rate limiting (max 10 emails / 60 seconds). Note: This method should not be used for any script that will be sending more than the occasional email.
- Use our SMTP gateways exactly the same as any external email client. Host=smtp.quick.net.au, SSL=on port 465. Authentication is required with a username and password for one of your mail accounts. This is the only option if your application is hosted externally.
