Common Questions:

What is my password?
Your password was set to a company-wide default when your email account was created, and should have been provided to you. If you have never changed your password, ask the person who set up the account for you what the default password is. We recommend changing your password to something you can remember.

If you currently have access to your email, but don't remember your password, you can use the Forgot Password feature on our webmail site to have your password sent to you.

If you don't know your password and do not currently have access to your email, the person who set up your account may be able to have it reset to the company default. If they are not able to help, please call Smarsh Support for assistance.

How do I change my password?
1) Log onto our webmail site at
2) Click "Options" at the top, then click "Change Password" in the menu on the left
3) Enter your old password, then enter and confirm your new password
4) Click the Save button at the top
5) If you also use an email program such as Microsoft Outlook, or a mobile device such as a Blackberry or iPhone, you will need to update your password there. In most cases, you will be prompted to enter your password the next time you check your email; if not, you may need to edit the account settings to change the password.

I can receive mail, but cannot send. How do I fix it?
If you receive an error message that says "550 5.7.1… we do not relay", you need to
enable SMTP authentication.
If you receive another error, check your settings to make sure you are not using port 25 (which may be blocked by your ISP), and that your SSL setting and port number match the technical setup details listed above.
If these steps do not solve your problem, please call Smarsh Support for assistance.
