Cannot to an external SMTP e-mail server
I have an e-mail box account on an IMAP/SMTP external server. There is no problem with incoming mails - but I am unable to send e-mail using this external SMTP server. K-mail is unable to contact, while Seamonky e-mail client is stuck trying to contact.
It seems for me that all settings for email clients are done well. I am thinking about two possibilities: 1) I have to run a service on my computer 2) my Linksys wireless router is set up to not allow outgoing SMTP connections.
well to troubleshoot it I would look at using telnet to try to hit port 25 on whatever host you are using. What is the outbound SMTP? In those situations your ISP might be insisting that you use their own relay, assuming they have one, so that can be something to check.
