Setup SMTP Authorization

The College of Engineering email system does not allow accounts to relay messages if it is coming from an off campus host. SMTP Authorization is now implemented so users can authenticate to the CoE SMTP server so emails can be relayed.

To set up this feature in your mail client:

  • The port for the SMTP server is still 25. (if you have difficulties sending email, try setting the port to 465)
  • The connection to the SMTP server needs to be set to use a secure connection (SSL).
  • The user name and password to give to the SMTP server is the same as your CoE user name and password.
  • The hostname to use for your outgoing mail or SMTP server is mail.engr.oregonstate.edu.
