    Re: Port Settings (OL2000 W2K)

    Could you explain your question in a bit more detail??

    Some common ports for e-mail are:

    POP3 (retrieve) = 110
    POP3 (retrieve) over SSL = 995

    SMTP (send) = 25
    SMTP (send) over SSL = 465

    If you open the account settings (Tools>Accounts, in Internet Mail Only mode; Tools>Services in Corporate/Workgroup mode) and find your way to the Advanced tab of the account settings, you'll see which ones the account is set up to use.

    Re: Port Settings (OL2000 W2K)

    Hi, Jefferson ~

    My question in more detail....how do I locate the current port settings for an established e-mail account?

    No 'Accounts' under 'Tools' in OL2000.

    Did you try Tools>Services? It's one or the other, Accounts or Services.

    Under Services, look for Internet E-mail. Of course, if this is Exchange, Groupwise, etc., I have no idea.

    There is a 'Services' under 'Tools', then a 'Sevices' tab, but no 'Internet E-mail' - only 'Microsoft Exchange' and the 'Advanced' tab there does not list any ports.

    Microsoft Exchange does not use a standard Internet transport. It doesn't use ports in the same sense as SMTP servers, although I suppose it uses the RPC port. I have no idea what you're trying to do, but maybe download a sniffer and see if you can learn anything that way.

    Re: Port Settings (OL2000 W2K)

    What we are trying to do is set up an e-mail account with Outlook Express for personal e-mail. It used to work on 110/625, but there have been some changes on the network or something that now prevents the retrieval of mail. We were starting with the ports since that would be the obvious place to begin.

    Does something different need to be done to access regular POP3 across Exchange?

    Re: Port Settings (OL2000 W2K)

    Normally, using Outlook (not Express), you would use the Services dialog to Add an Internet E-mail Service for the POP account. It's completely independent of Exchange. If the ports the ISP specifies for the POP account are not working, the network admin might have closed them in the firewall.

    Port 625 does not sound familiar.

    Re: Port Settings (OL2000 W2K)

    Port '625' was the SMTP port that we used to use - we did not use the standard '25'.

    If we want to add an Internet E-mail Service for a POP account in Outlook Express, are you suggesting that this is set up in Outlook2000?

    I am the mailserver service provider for the personal e-mail account set up in OE. It was fine until recent changes made on the network. I was making the assumption that mail passes through a port regardless and locating it would allow listening on that port to retrieve mail.

    Am I going about this wrong, you think? <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>

    Re: Port Settings (OL2000 W2K)

    No, I am not saying that you would set up an OE account through Outlook. I thought this thread was about Outlook. It appears to be about Outlook Express. I can't explain why OE would stop working.

    There is not a single "mail port." Instead, the mail server dictates the port on which it will listen for connections, and the client connects to that port. As in your case, the number can be arbitrary. The most common ones were listed in an earlier message.

    It probably is essential to learn at this point what change was made on the network? If the firewall policy/rules were changed to block access to the port you were using, you'll need to deal with the network administrator to develop a solution.
