If your school uses a different Internet connection, then you should seek advice from your supplier. Many ISPs have their own server such as smtp.freeserve.com, mail.btconnect.com, outbound1.equinoxit.com, etc. If your ISP does not have a mailserver that can be used, you should seek further advice from RM with regards to your school's email provision.

- RM Easymail Plus is a Web based email solution and accessing mail via the Web interface is the recommended login method.
- Using the POP3 or IMAP method allows the account to bypass the banned word checking, outbound virus scanning, attachment blocking and any restriction list applied to the account therefore we advise that only teachers or admin staff use it in this way.
- RM Support only provides the above advice regarding the configuration of Outlook® Express as an email client for RM EasyMail Plus. We are unable to provide general support relating to the use of Outlook® Express or any other third party email clients in conjunction with RM EasyMail Plus.
