Send form mail using an SMTP relay server

Modified on Thu, 28 Apr 2022 at 05:31 AM

If you want to use your website to send form mail, like submissions to a contact us form, you'll need to connect to our mail relay server.

Sending mail through other providers isn't allowed, so you'll need to use the following settings:

Port: 25
SMTP Authentication: False or none
SSL or Secure Connection: None
Server or Host: local host or relay-hosting.secureserver.net (as indicated below)

Linux (cPanel)

Use localhost unless:

  • You use PHP script and the mail() function.
  • You use Perl script and the /usr/lib/sendmail binary.

In those cases, you do not need to specify a relay server.

Windows (Plesk)

Use relay-hosting.secureserver.net unless you use PHP script and the mail() function, in which case, you do not need to specify a relay server.

Managed WordPress

Use relay-hosting.secureserver.net unless:

  • You use PHP script and the mail() function.
  • You use Perl script and the /usr/lib/sendmail binary.

In those cases, you do not need to specify a relay server.
