Setting up SMTP servers outside of the SOEST domain.

NOTE:    THIS FAQ DOES NOT APPLY TO THOSE USING PINE TO SEND E-MAIL.

If you want to send e-mail using a SOEST account outside of the SOEST network (e.g. at home or on a trip) you will not be able to use the SOEST SMTP servers (akule, mano, iniki, etc.) to send out mail.  In order to send mail, the SMTP server for the network (ISP) that you are connected to needs to be used.  Below are instructions to input the SMTP settings for the most commonly used e-mail programs.
