Q: What SMTP/POP server should I use to send/read e-mail?

smtp.astro.ucla.edu and pop.astro.ucla.edu, respectively.

However, please note that you can use this SMTP server only from a computer in the astro.ucla.edu or physics.ucla.edu domain (plus a limited number of other ``special'' computers listed on the remote access intranet web page).

If you are connecting from another domain, you have to ask your ISP--not us--what SMTP server to use.

Instructions on how to use our POP server from outside our domain can be found on a special intranet web page.
