Your outgoing mail server should now read mail.your domain name.com
Sometimes it will show the user name associated with that server.

Some ISP’s will have security measures in place that will not allow you to send email out through
their servers to another server. They do this to help prevent spam email. If you can receive email
but cannot send it this may be the reason. Call and ask us to help, we can see when you talk to
the server and tell if your send function is even getting to us.
