Mail using external SMTP (2 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm sure most of you must've head about the Windows Live project (beta). This lets you sign up your domain with them, change DNS, and then login on hotmail.com with your domain email, etc.

    Now, I have wordpress installed on my Abyss Webserver on XP pro. My ISP net account is given to me by my landlord, so ofcourse, he won't give me his username/password to use the sendmail () ... [I installed the mail plugin which lets me use the SMTP mailing thing]

    The only thing now is, I would like to use my domain email (hosted with hotmail?) to accept the wordpress post-by-email function. Or the gmail option.

    Has anyone done this before?
    Please help.
