HI Guys
I have a dilema.
I have an email account with my local ISP, with its own SMTP settings (which is configured in entourage). Which is smtp.exetel.com.au. (which works fine).

However, when i'm at work, and connected to works ISP, SMTP settings no longer work (obviously) and i need to change mail settings(smtp), to smtp.tpg.com.au.

Is there someway to either automate this (i.e the SMTP changes) based on where the macbook connects.

Cheers
-Craig :)

Try setting up both account and check "both". One will always fail but you can still connect. Which of the two has the actual email - that should be the one you connect to for receiving and the sending email will change for where you are located.

No such luck :-(

Yeah -this is a problem faced mostly by us laptop users.

My solution? Set up a second email account that uses the other SMTP servers. Then when you Compose a new message, use the account that corresponds to your location. You can set this to check mail if you prefer, or simply to send.

Cheers Cubamark, that may be an option.

Could this be a possible solution? :)
