    Pegasus not able to use port 465 to send mail

    Pegasus is not able to use port 465 to send mail out, on my verizon account.
    Has anyone got an alternative. Mail in is ok.

    Are you intending to send SSL encrypted emails?

    Port 465 is intended for smtps - SSL encrypted email.
    Port 587 is intended for MSA - basically standard outgoing email with spam protection.

    http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1...ts-465-and-587

    Have you tried Port 587?

    It could be a Verizon issue, which apparently happened in 2012.

    Like many ISPs, Verizon requires the use of port 465: Your Attention Needed: Re-configure Your Email Settings to Send Email

    ... where the bottom line on the last page is that the issue was resolved by Pegasus 4.70 released this year:

    A major internal change, this should allow Pegasus Mail to connect to almost any SSL-secured server.

    March 8th 2014 - Pegasus Mail v4.70

    Ah! Thanks for the confirmation.
    I do use Comcast with Port 587. That's why I wasn't sure.

    And that update BruceR so kindly eluded to has other enhancements for Pegasus Mail. So it would be well worth upgrading.

    Currently, I use Linux, where Pegasus is not an option. I use Claws Mail, but Thunderbird is very popular for folks who want something which can operate cross-platform. Thunderbird development has ceased for new features, but security updates are still being put out. So if you choose Thunderbird, you can and should keep that program up to date.
