How to Send Email on Another Network Using mail.app

Here’s a screenshot (click the image for a larger image in a popup) for Steve Garfield who was curious about how to send email from his Mac’s mail.app program when he’s away from his home or work network. It came up when we were talking at the Museum of Science earlier today after the Boston Wi-Fi Summit. This may not work with all email hosting providers or networks. I’ve got DreamHost for my web and email hosting.

Speaking of the Museum of Science, they opened up their internal Wi-Fi network for the summit today. Wouldn’t it be great if it was always open or at least in the lobby and outside?

  1. “Speaking of the Museum of Science, they opened up their internal Wi-Fi network for the summit today. Wouldn’t it be great if it was always open or at least in the lobby and outside?”

    — Wouldn’t that have been a great question to ask… at the summit? ;-)

  2. Not really, no.

    But I think that it would be a great followup discussion I would enjoying having with them since they did host the summit afterall.
