    email port

    I recently moved to rcn. I have had a few problems and one continues but will work through. I just need to be a bit tolerant. Telcom is something I change once every 40 years so I am on for the lone haul.

    But....

    I lost email smtp capability soon after the switchover and so this evening I called my provider for noevalley.com and was given an alte rnate port and now things work fine.

    Seems rcn blocks 25 to force traffic through their machine to use their email.

    So, if you are having this problem your answer may be similar.

    Lightbulb Your provider's SMTP

    FYI - I usually use my Internet provider's SMTP server, whoever that provider is, rather than the SMTP server for my email host.

    If you have a server, you can run Exim on both port 25 and 26, so that unblocked people can use port 25, while blocked can use 26.

    I do not think I have had a yahoo account or an msn email account.

    No not quite true. Wayyyy back I had a well account. But since then they have been

    I am a bit distracted by the changes with no notice.

    But in the end, nothing is lost.
