Hey @FaithSteven


First let me say welcome to the community! Smiley Happy


If you're sending the mail from your hosting plan, you're actually using the wrong relay server. Configure your forum pages to send through as the relay server. Also, you'll need to specify port 25 for outgoing mail. There's no login requirements to send through this server. 


Let us know if that helps.
