To Setup SMTP Authentication (for JMail Pro only)

This setup is mainly for JARING UUCP account user who use TM-net Streamyx connection. JARING have open up the SMTP authentication interface for the above mentioned customer. At this moment, they will be no charge for this service. JARING may impose some charges in the future. If you are using Streamyx connection (all type), for JMail user, you need to upgrade to JMail Pro. For Streamyx with fix IP Address (corporate account), you may chooise "send mail directly to the recipients' server" or follows the following steps to setup SMTP Authentication. For Streamyx with Dynamic IP Address (home account), you have to setup the SMTP Authentication.


Before you want to setup the SMTP Authentication, you should setup your UUCP account parameter first.

First, go to Settings -> System to bring up the "System Setting" windows.


Click on the "Configure remote SMTP server settings". You should see the following windows appear:



Type in the SMTP server as "" and click the first "Authentication" buttom from the top. You should bring up the following windows:



Select the "This SMTP server requires authentication" by click the small little box at the left. Since the User ID and Password is the same as your UUCP account, chooise the "Use login for" (the XXX is the uucp server number), and then click the "OK" buttom. That all.



This is a little help on how to setup Jmail. You can use Jmail under Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows NT 4.

First, you need to run the JMail setup. Just run setup.exe from the installation disk. If you wish to run Jmail under Windows 95, please run W95ws2setup.exe before you run Jmail setup.

After you run the above setup programs, you need to configure your system for dialup to Internet, this means that you need to setup TCP/IP, Dial-up Networking (or Remote Access Service on NT4). Additional help is available at JARING helpdesk. We have also included a dialup script in the setup program. You will find it at the Program Files/Accessories Folder after you run JMail setup. The file name is jar-jmail.scp.

Test your Dialup Networking (DUN) or Remote Access Service (RAS). Make sure you are able to connect to JARING before you start JMail for the first time. Use the supplied dial-up networking script to ensure success. Once you have the dial-up utility configured, you can start your Jmail program. You will find Jmail icon at the Start -> Programs -> Jmail. The first screen you see will be the screen shown below:

Type in "postmaster" as the default password. You will enter Jmail's main console. At the main console, select the Settings -> Server option from the menu.

You need to key in the required infomation.

1. This Computer's IP Address

This is you machine IP address and should be auto detech during JMail installation. Since your domain is not connected directly to the Internet, you can assign any Private IP address to you network. You need to assign one IP Address to each computer you wish to connect to Jmail. You can key in the IP address at Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Network. You will find an entry that reads "TCP/IP->You network card name". Double click this entry. Choose the "Specify an IP Address" and key in the IP address you want with the subnet mask as In this example, Jmail's machine IP address is You will find the same IP address at the Local Domain's IP Address field. If this is not the case in your installation, please key in the correct IP address.

The default JARING SMTP server is For Nasionet and Putra Net subscriber, please check with your ISP. You may specify two additional SMTP servers for Jmail. All JARING POP3 servers are also SMTP servers. Therefore, you can choose any server from the range to In the above example, and have been chosen.
