Enable Proxy Configuration

Host

The hostname or address of the proxy server.

Port

Authentication

If enabled, you must enter the user name and password for the proxy server.

User Name

User Name for the email account used as the sender account.

Password

Password for the email account used as the sender account.

Use HTTP Proxy settings for all protocols

If enabled, the HTTP Proxy configuration will be used for both HTTPS and FTP Proxy communication.

Proxy Exclusions

Indicates the hosts that should be accessed without going through the proxy. The list of hosts are separated by the '|' character. The wildcard character '*' can be used for pattern matching (e.g., Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=”*.foo.com|localhost” indicates that every host in the foo.com domain and the localhost should be access directly, even if a proxy server is specified).
