PageGate SMTP Carrier Setup Transcript for
Welcome to the tutorial on how to add an SMTP
carrier in PageGate.
The first step is to run the PageGate Admin.
So, go to your Start Menu, go to your Programs,
find the PageGate program group, and left click
on the PageGate Admin.
When the program comes up, if you're using the
trial version, you'll see this prompt.
Left click on the Continue button.
Left click on the plus sign next to Connectors,
Left click on the SMTP sub-section.
In the SMTP section, you should see the following
The Local Domain identifies where your messages
are coming from, not where they're going to.
The information entered into the Local Domain
field MUST be a valid email address.
I recommend using the latter half of your email
address. For example, I'm going to use notepage.com
since I want people to know that's where the messages
have come from.
After entering the Local Domain, you'll notice
we have a few other fields.
To know which to use, we first need to determine
if port 25 is open on your computer.
Here's how to do that:
The first step is to left click on your start
menu, then select Run.
In the Run line, type the word command and left
click on ok.
After the command prompt comes up, you'll want
to type in this specific sequence
telnet mail.notepage.com 25
After you've entered that line, hit enter on
If port 25 is open, you'll receive this response:
220 qs1534.pair.com ESMTP Postfix
If port 25 is closed, you'll receive a notification
that says "Unable to connect to the host on port
Once you've finished with the command prompt,
type the word QUIT in all capital letters and
The connection will then close. Hit the backspace
key on your keyboard to return to the base command
prompt, then type the word exit and hit enter
to exit the command prompt.
Back in PageGate, if port 25 is open, verify
that your primary and secondary DNS servers are
entered into DNS 1 and 2. If you're unsure as
to what these are, please contact your network
administrator or Internet Service Provider's Tech
If port 25 is closed on your network, put a check
in the "Relay All Mail" checkbox.
In the Relay Server field, you'll need to enter
the address of your local mail server. If you're
unsure as to what this is, please contact your
network administrator or Internet Service Provider's
Left click on Apply to save these settings.
Now that we've determined the method of SMTP
delivery, we can add the SMTP carrier.
Find the Carriers section and right click on
In the Carrier field, enter the name of the carrier
you're going to be sending the messages to. Examples
of carriers are PagePlus, American Messaging,
Sprint, and AT&T.
Once you've entered the carrier's name, left
click the dropdown arrow next to the Protocol,
then select SMTP from the list.
Leave the port at the default 25.
The next field, Max Characters, determines the
maximum number of characters that this carrier
can receive in a single message.
Typically, for cell phone carriers, this should
be set to 160. For paging carriers, it should
be set to 240.
Left click on Apply to add your carrier into
the available carriers list.
After entering in your information, left click
on Apply to add the carrier into the list.
