Yep, and it doesn't work. At least not on Port 25.

Which SMTP mail server you should use depends on when you joined the Sympatico service:
If you joined the Sympatico service before March 1, 2002, use smtp1.sympatico.ca.
If you joined the Sympatico service on or after March 1, 2002, use smtp8.sympatico.ca.

Try this Lars,
In Atlantic Canada, Aliant is the service provider for Sympatico and I think you have to have an address such as:
smtp1.nb.sympatico.ca
(the province inserted into the address.)

This worked! Thanks!

I know from personal experience that if you're having trouble with one of those two SMTP servers, you can switch to the other other without having to worry about when exactly you signed up.

I'm not sure why they mention the date on which you joined Sympatico. (Probably to help share the load between the two)
