SMTP server setup for replying from gmail


#1

I am switching my main email from yahoo to gmail.

I deleted an old email forwarder and added a new one. Mail sent to me at yourfortcollins.com now goes to my gmail address. That’s good.

However, when I reply to one of these emails in the gmail client, I want the “from” address to be my yourfortcollinshome(dot)com address, not my gmail address. To set this up in gmail, I have to go to Settings->Accounts and Import->Add another email address. Then I fill in a form containing my name and my yourfortcollinshome(dot)com address. So far, so good.

BUT in the next step, gmail asks for the name of an SMTP server, a username (prefilled with my yourfortcollins(dot)com email address) and a password. Now I’m stuck.

What should I fill in for the SMTP server, username and password? Is there an SMTP server for 000webhost? Is the username and password my main login for the 000webhost members area?

(When I set this up Yahoo to allow sending from my yourfortcollinshome(dot)com address, I didn’t need an SMTP address.)

I recommend upgrading, or using Zoho mail

That reply is useless jargon and is no help.

Does anyone else have some guidance related to the original question?
