Subject Re: Query on James server
Date Sat, 11 Sep 2010 16:46:13 GMT
I am using Windows server 2003 and have made the minimum changes to 
config.xml to support four userids in three domains.
My client is windows 7 live mail which is physically located on a different 
network two provinces away.
When I configure the SMTP port as 587 both incoming and outgoing mail stops 
after a few days.
When I restore the SMTP port back to 25 the POP3 incoming mail starts 
arriving again although outgoing mail is then blocked by my ISP.

Are you using a port other than 25 for SMTP ?
Gerry
