When using ASMTP (Authenticated SMTP), You will make a one-time change to your email logon settings. Once done, you will be able to send email from abroad or from home, without switching settings back and forth.

ASMTP also allows EarthLink members to send email while using non-EarthLink networks, such as, office network (unless that network doesnt permit connections to outside mail servers). In short, as long as you have an EarthLink account, you will not need to connect to the internet through EarthLink in order to use the ASMTP servers.

Send email from almost any location:
• From abroad, using International roaming
• From home, while connected to EarthLink
• From the office (unless the office LAN does not permit connections to outside mail servers)
• From any location, using any enternet service EarthLink members that use any of the email programs, listed below, are encouraged to change the email settings and start using ASMTP right away:
