Static IP Address
Most home computers that connect to the internet through
an Internet Service Provider (ISP) will be given a dynamic IP
address by their ISP. It is called a dynamic IP because it could
be different each time you connect. If your computer is connected
via a dynamic IP address you should avoid using AutoMSW's "Direct
Send" feature. Instead, send using your ISP's SMTP server. To use your ISP's SMTP server choose the
"Change..." button in the "From" section in AutoMSW, and choose the
SMTP mail server option. If you
would like to obtain a static IP address, contact your ISP. Many
ISPs will offer a static IP for an additional monthly charge.
Most business internet connections offer a static IP address with the
service. If you're not sure if you have a static or dynamic IP
address, contact your Internet Service Provider.
The IP address assigned by your ISP is the WAN IP address for your
router. IP addresses within your local area network (LAN) do not
matter for the purposes being described here. It is only important
that your WAN IP address be a static IP address.
