Sending email on port 25 and 26


Hello,
I have email server, which is running exim, My old admin has setup the exim to receive email on port 25 and 26. Now all the sudden users not able to send email on using port 26. But the port 25 works fine.


Why would the cliets want to send email on port 26, some of the clients ISP has blocked the port 25.

Therefore our old admin somehow setup the exim to receive on port 25 and 26.

ist here anyway i can troubleshoot this issue and allow the user to send again using the port 25 and 26.

OS : redhat
MTA or email server : exim


thanks in advance

Hi there,

I'm a little confused when reading this.

I don't *think* you can setup exim (in fact, I've never seen a program listen on more than 1 port) to listen on 2 ports. What your old admin did was probably set exim to listen (inbound) on port 25 and port 26 was used for all outbound messages. Now that would make sense.

Didn't you just state above that port 25 works fine?? That's where I'm confused. So do you know what works and what doesn't?
