 Port 25 is Blocked

What if my ISP blocks Port 25 to prevent SPAMmers?

Sometimes, even though everything is setup perfectly, you'll get an error trying to send mail even though you're able to receive mail. Beyond double-checking your settings to make sure they are 100% correct, the solution is something that isn't readily apparent.

In short, more and more ISPs, try and make things difficult for Spammers & Viruses by blocking the SMTP (sendmail transport protocol) port 25. Unfortunately, this also ends up making things more difficult for legitimate users.

To alleviate this problem and since we run advanced Anti-Relay software, we have setup an alternate SMTP port at 2025. We also provide SMTP over SSL on port 465 for customers as well!

To utilize this alternate port, follow the directions for the mail client you are using.

Outlook Express

Go to Tools->Accounts and click on the Mail tab.

Highlight your Peregrine Computer Consultants Corporation account and click on properties.

Go to the Advanced tab and change the outgoing port to 2025.

The problem should now be fixed!
