Hosting client not using Afrihost DSL but needing SMTP. mail.my-cupcakes.co.za mail.my-cupcakes.co.za *
Hosting client not using Afrihost DSL and using their own ISP for SMTP. mail.my-cupcakes.co.za Settings Provided by your ISP **

* SMTP Authentication must be switched on – some email clients have the facility to say "Use same settings as incoming" - so it will use the email address and password of your POP account.
