Re: SMTP outgoing settings for non-BT email account

Currently, any email address can be used for outgoing email without prior verification.

Indeed that's right - I forgot it has been removed at present, though I believe it might still affect some people to some extent. I've received emails via my website for help in this matter very recently.

 

Maybe there will be no need for verification after the migration.

 

It shouldn't have ever been needed, it doesn't reduce or prevent spam.

Settings > Mail > Accounts allows the adding of external email addresses. I suppose at one point that could be used for the verification of outgoing email addresses.
