Re: [Evolution] Changing Port 25 to Port 587

I am back in town, took my netbook with me to see if it could send email. I fired up WiFii radar, found a node and was sending and receiving email. I am now working with the default firewall to open port 587 to get it to work on my Verizon ISP. Most frustrating.

Verizon is my ISP in CA but my email is from my old ISP in CO.

It depends on what provider you use. it just happened to be for msn, but Verizon might use something else.
However, typically pop uses and smpt, mostly

If your Email is at another ISP, you can retrieve with pop from
anywhere, but some ISP's don't allow Relaying, and therefore sometimes
block smtp to another ISP. You will have to use the SMTP server from
your active ISP. Or another option is using a google account to send
email. This way you can always send through the google smtp servers. or have your emails for your domain hosted by a hosting company as godaddy, domaindiscover.... Don't know if I'm clear with my explanation.
