I’m having trouble sending email. I get an error that says ‘550’ Server does not accept direct email. Set your email to use SMTP. What’s wrong?


You need to set your email software to use the correct servers. For POP3, set it to “pop3.nckcn.com”. For SMTP, the setting has to be “smtp.nckcn.com”. You can look at our online guides for help.
