SMTP Server is the host name of a mail server which is configured to allow mail relaying from your timeLines web server. timeLines functionality relies on the use of email extensively. If your timeLines server installation is not configured to use its own native SMTP server, you must supply another mail server name (Please be aware that the SMTP server named in the illustration,, is not an open relay and will not work unless your site is hosted by skyBuilders.)
