Intranet to external addresses. What do we do?
Check the settings for your
e-mail server. This is often a configuration error that can be
solved by changing some settings. Another option, if the problem
can not be solved, is to use an
external e-mail service or use an e-mail server that your
ISP (Internet Service Provider) provides.
Sometimes an e-mail delivery is stopped although there are
contacts left in the mailing list. Why?
It can depend on your e-mail
server. Some e-mail servers has a limit of
how many e-mail messages that can be send per hour or per minute.
You can try to increase the pause between two e-mails in the

anti-virus program does not allow MultiMailer to communicate through the
standard e-mail port (25). You can check in your security
program if it can allow MultiMailer to use port 25 for

If nothing happens when you
start an e-mail delivery, the program seems to wait and wait

program and allow MultiMailer to communicate with e-mail servers
