x10hosting supports many ways of sending emails to your users. However, some have restriction to prevent abuse.


Using x10hosting's mail server

All mail sent through x10hosting's mail server are subject to the following restrictions:

  • The "from" address must be an email address you created in cPanel.
  • There is a hourly/daily limit on the number of emails that you can send.

PHP's mail()

This function uses by default the sendmail program to send emails to it's recipients. You simply need to specify the recipient and add a email account defined in cPanel as the from address in the additional headers.


Sending mail using SMTP typically requires using a third party library such as Pear::Mail* or PHPMailer*. The configuration is:

Mail Server Username: email name+your domain
Mail Server Password: email address password
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.your domain (server requires authentication) port 25
Outgoing Mail Server: (SSL) your server.x10hosting.com (server requires authentication) port 465
Supported Outgoing Mail Protocols: SMTP, SMTPS (SSL/TLS)

Using external mail server

To use external mail servers, you must use SMTP. We impose no restriction when using external mail servers, but the provider you use might impose its own.


Ask your external mail server for the SMTP connection details.
