PageGate SMTP Carrier Setup Transcript for Video:
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, then Global.

Left click on the SMTP sub-section.

In the SMTP section, you should see the following fields.

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 your keyboard.

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 25"

Once you've finished with the command prompt, type the word QUIT in all capital letters and hit enter.

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 Support.

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 Tech Support

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 it.

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.

This concludes the tutorial for how to add an SMTP carrier into PageGate. For more tutorials, including how to add an SMTP recipient, please visit our website, www.notepage.net
