Post SMTP server


Hey Dudes,

I got a little problem. My Internet provider doesn't support SMTP trafic. So i can't use my smtp server to send mail. I always have to use web mail. This is irritating Does anybody know a solution? (like setting up an own smpt server)


Ciao Atz

Via ISP mail server

atze,you can send your e-mail via your ISP's mail server.

Like me,my ISP also blocks port 25.It doesn't matter! I can send my e-mail with my e-mail address like swift@no-ip.com.You can set the outgoing mail server as your ISP's mail server.e.g. mail.your-isp.com in your MTA,like postfix.Then the mail will route to your ISP's mail server and send it out.

Hope this help.

You can use other ports for SMTP, but you have to tell people that have accounts on your server to change the port for SMTP.
