According to:  http://helpwiki.easydns.com/index.php/Mail_Settings

   DNS Pro and Enterprise clients can use the same server if they prefer
   not to enable easyMAIL, and can also relay their outbound mail using


   easyMAIL users should use the following settings:

      inbound mail (MX record) : mx.easymail.ca *
      outbound SMTP :  mailout.easymail.ca
      POP mail server :   pop.easymail.ca
      IMAP mail server :  imap.easymail.ca (ports 143 & 993)
      Webmail access :    webmail.easymail.ca

[I'm not sure why it says .com for the first item and .ca for the next
-- perhaps that's a mistake.]
