Guide: Sending E-mail From Browser 2015

Post#1 » Mon Dec 21, 2015 6:12 pm

I've been trying to figure this one out for awhile. Favrenation sent me a guide and i'm making a more refined guide here, since there's some things not mentioned in the original (which i'll cite at them bottom). Using the images from there


-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Download CMailServer here http://download.cnet.com/CMailServer/30 ... 74940.html

Find the name of your PC first, this is important. For the guide we'll call it noob-pc

Image

Go to Account--> Create New Account

This is where we need the PC name
The account name, password and username can be anything but for example:

Code: Select all

Account: dreamcast
Password: dreamcast
Username: dreamcast@noob-pc.com


Image

Go to the Remote POP3 tab

If you're using gmail, the pop3 server is pop.gmail.com
pop3 port is 995
Check "SSL"
Then input your gmail e-mail and password
Click "add new"

Image

Go to Tools --> Configuration
Check "Run as internet mail server"

Only check "Enable mail proxy"

For the domain name, this is again where we need the PC name

Check "Single domain" and input your PC name followed by '.com'
So for example: noob-pc.com

Click "Advanced"

Image

In the advanced menu, DNS settings as follows:

Code: Select all

Primary DNS 8.8.8.8 (Google DNS)
Secondary DNS 8.8.4.4


Check Try ISP SMTP if direct sending failed

SMTP server in the case of gmail: smtp.gmail.com
Port 465
Check SSL

Both ISP email and ISP login is your gmail e-mail address
Password is your gmail password

--------

Now to configure the Dreamcast e-mail client, the POP/SMTP server will point to your PC running cmail server

To find this out, run cmd and type "ipconfig" without quotes and use the IP listed for your ethernet adapter (Local Area Connection). For example of the guide lets say its 192.168.1.2

Code: Select all

Username/E-mail login: dreamcast
Password: dreamcast
E-mail address: dreamcast@noob-pc.com
POP server: 192.168.1.2
SMTP server: 192.168.1.2





That's it, you should now be able to send e-mail from your Dreamcast browser using modern e-mail providers

If when launching cmailserver, it says 'Failed to load POP/SMTP service' you have a conflicting e-mail program installed and should remove it

Yes receiving has always worked for certain providers, it was sending that was the issue

I just needed to see if e-mail discussions work right between two or more consoles

You probably have your POP settings wrong. Receiving was never the issue it was sending

Cool. I did this setup yesterday morning. It's very odd for me to replicate internet from the late 90's for me since I was exposed to such a thing in the early 2000's. Keep up the good work.
