External IP, Cant Send IMAP
I want to send email from an external IP, roaming, Laptop. I can receive IMAP just fine. Sending from the web interface is also fine.
Client = OS X's Apple mail.app
I have searched the forums and read lots of similar posts, and the admin manual also.... But have not found the answer to my problem. Please point me in the right direction(s) and I will do the reading.
P.S. love the Zimbra app =]
Port 25 blocked by cable provider COX
1. smtp auth enabled, yes
2. auth settings for smtp for mail.app & thunderbird, yes
Ok, changed the defualt port of 465 to port 25 in the client(s). Not sure why 465 is labeled as default for SSL if it needs to be port 25 (in the client(s)).
Hrm, my provider, COX, is blocking port 25, so telnet times out to port 25.
My partner was able to send from his cable co., while using ssl.
3. The logs are clean for the send request, as in they never see the request. Which led to my discovery of blocked port 25 outbound from my SOHO.
Wild, how do I send from behind my provider, and why is the default port for SSL different than port 25 in my client(s)? Do you choose the port and then SSL does not care when yo uadjust to port 25?
Thanks for playing,
