Jeff G. Posted March 8, 2004 Share Posted March 8, 2004 (edited) This Scorecard lists Service Providers that provide Authenticated SMTP Services (linked to their main website URLs), Mitigating Objective Facts (linked to the sources of those facts), and Subjective Comments. Additions and comments are welcome. SpamCop.Net ("Leave the SMTP server set up with the server your ISP provides." and "No, sorry, we don't."): Sorry, not offered. MochaMail ("New Accounts Coming Soon!"): Works well with no perceived limitations. MailAndNews.com ("At this time we are not accepting new accounts."): Reliability problems but no perceived limitations. MyRealBox ("The MyRealBox system will continue to no longer accept new accounts at this time." within "MRB News" halfway down the page): Reliability problems but no perceived limitations. DynDNS.org MailHop Outbound (Minimum $14.95 for the first year and $9.95 for additional years at 150 Relays Per Day): I haven't tried it. Yahoo! (Minimum $19.95/year for "POP Access & Forwarding"): May require POP before SMTP instead of Authenticated SMTP. Yahoo! UK & Ireland (Free via smtp.mail.yahoo.com or smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk after signing up for "POP Access & Forwarding"): Works, but recently added a little text advertising at the end of the body. For instance: ___________________________________________________________ How much free photo storage do you get? Store your holiday snaps for FREE with Yahoo! Photos http://uk.photos.yahoo.com Gmail (A beta service of Google, free via smtp.gmail.com using SSL Port 465, subject to caveats and requiring an invitation): Works well so far...
