EarthLink Members: Updating Outgoing Mail Settings

It would appear EarthLink is instructing us members to update our outgoing mail settings to the more secure and flexible Authenticated Mail Server which uses MD5 Challenge-Response.

This nice feature has actually been around for years and I'm glad to see it advocated: it should ensure you're able to send e-mail regardless of what network you're in, which will come-in especially handy to mobile users.

They have wizards available at the above URL for Windows, Mac OS X and Mac Classic.
