Authenticated Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (AUTHSMTP) is one of the three email authentication types available to Penn State Access Account holders. There are three things to know about AUTHSMTP.
- AUTHSMTP is recommended for accessing mail from off-campus.
- An AUTHSMTP connection does NOT require the VPN Client when off-camus.
- If VPN and AUTHSMTP are used simultaneously an error will occur.
NOTE: Windows Mobile phone users should use Outgoing Email port 465 NOT 587.
Below are instructions for AUTHSMTP configurations split out by connection type.
