Q: Why all the emails send out are FAIL?
A: You may check the SMTP settings via menu "File > Settings > Sending".
Verify the settings in RoboMail exactly match what your ISP provides: no typos (e.g., smtp not smpt), extra spaces, punctuation mistakes or capitalization errors.
If you using RoboMail built-in SMTP, you may check whether your ISP block port 25. In an effort to stop spam, many ISPs block all traffic to port 25 on anything except their own SMTP servers. In this case, you cannot use RoboMail built-in SMTP server. You need to use ISP's SMTP server.
Q: RoboMail says the emails are sent out SUCCESS, but I receive nothing?
A: If the email is marked as SUCCESS in RoboMail, it means the email is already sent out and leave the RoboMail software.
There are many reasons why the email is not delivered.

Some antivirus software (e.g. Norton) will scan the outgoing email. If the email is sent from a non-default email client.
The antivirus software will block it. You may configure your antivirus software to allows the outgoing email.
2. Blocked by Firewall
This is similar to the case of antivirus software.
You may consult your system administrator to config the firewall to allow email sent out.
3. Email is dropped into JUNK/SPAM folder
When email server suddenly receives a large amount of same email in short period, it may marked those email as SPAM/JUNK. The email will be drop into SPAM folder.
You may check the JUNK folder to see if the mail is drop there or not.
