    Default IP Address in Forms Handler Component

    The General tab of the Forms Handler Component requires an IP address for email handling. Does this have to be numeric or can it be something like smtp.1and1.com (as when setting up an email account)? I called up 1and1 to ask for the actual ip address and they said they don't provide that since I have windows shared hosting and my ip is dynamic. That doesn't sound right though. I don't think that makes their mail server dynamic (?).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Default

    I've always just left it at the default: 127.0.0.1 which is the Localhost loopback address. Have you tried that?

    Thanks RayC. I did not try that, but instead dumped my ISP for a new one. They were happy to provide that IP address for me. Seems to be working now.

    Thanks
