We get asked from time to time what the appropriate outgoing server settings are for MAC / APPLE E-mail accounts over a HughesNet Internet Connection!
Here are the correct settings:
Incoming (POP3) server: mail.hughes.net
Incoming Port: 110
Outgoing (SMTP) server: smtp.hughes.net
Outgoing Port: 25
Email and Username: email@example.com
Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): No
(it is better to use SSL but it causes too many problems with HughesNet)
If these settings are not working for you, please contact HughesNet Customer Care at 866-347-3292 for more information on this topic!
