Sending email through a Gateway mail server via WinGate
Posted by Adrien de Croy (Import) on 30 January 2004 05:52 PM

Since Version 5, WinGate has included an Email server to handle mail requirements in WinGate, for both the sending and receiving of mail. While it is possible to configure WinGate mail server to send mail on behalf of clients, in certain scenarios it may be more desirable and practical to have this delivery handled by an external server (such as an ISP). In this scenario WinGate should be configured as follows:

  1. Open GateKeeper on the WinGate Server.
  2. Select the Email Server icon from the System tab.
  3. Select the Delivery tab.
  4. Under the Remote Delivery section, click on the How to Deliver menu, and select Use Gateway option.
  5. In the Server text box enter the IP address of the SMTP server(the external mail server you are to use).
  6. Click OK.
  7. Save changes in GateKeeper.

Please Note: When setting up WinGate to use an External mail server for mail delivery, there is no requirement for Domains or Email user accounts to be configured in the WinGate Email Server.
