Note that some name registrars need only the names while others ask for both the names and the numbers (below).


Changing DNS Settings:

You should see a telnet window that returns telnet mail.yourdomainname.com 25 Trying Connected to mail.yourdomainname.com. Escape character is '^]'. 220 mail.plhosting.com ESMTP If you see anything other than 220 mail.plhosting.com ESMTP then you must use your ISP's mail server for outgoing smtp as Your ISP is blocking connections on port 25 to our mail system.
