Some providers allow 'relaying', others do not.
For example: If I use my cogeco connection, I can mail 'out' using
either my cogeco id or my sympatico id (user/pass). But if I use the
sympatico connection, I cannot use my cogeco id.
Sympatico doesn't allow 'relaying' - Cogeco does.
Well, I don't know whether I am relaying when I use my
earthlink server sending earthlink email using the comcast
pipe. That is comcast allows.
My mcleodusa account workarounds are to use the earthlink
server with my account name, or the comcast server with my
friend's comcast account name. I do not get challenged for a
password, so I am thinking it's the mcleodusa password
that's needed and automatically provided to mcleodusa by
seamonkey password manager while the comcast server is passive.
