I am a reseller and have started to recieve complaints from clients with notebooks, when they move from their normal providers area of coverage their email can not be sent out. They are using the incoming and outgoing pop server which comes with their webspace. In the past I have recomended this setup, it gave them access to their account from anywhere.
Lately though there has been a trend by the broadband providers to block outgoing mail on port 25, this creates a problem for my mobile clients.
I realize why the providers are doing this, but I am wondering if there is a work around for this. Being a reseller I can't change the port of the email server. The clients could use their webmail I guess but they would rather just use their local email program as usual.
I realize they could use the providers server but that is not where the problem is, it is when they are out of their providers area of coverage and would not have the credentials needed to use the outgoing mail server.
GS RichCopy 360 Enterprise - Voted #1 for data migration and replication in terms of performance and features. Replicate data across between servers in the same network, WAS, or even across the internet
I have some customers that signed up for a http://www.fastmail.fm member accout and use that server and adress for just smpt mail via port 26.
Ok it costs 15$ setup but then it's there and no extra cost.
