Changing default port for SMTP emails to alternate port (1045)
Posted by - NA - on 08 April 2009 01:32 PM

Some ISPs block the standard SMTP port (25) for their customers, meaning that it is not possible to access our SMTP server.

 

In these cases, we offer a second SMTP port which is 1045. Most mail clients will let you change this port number from the same screen that you setup your mail account. Below are the steps required to accomplish this:

Microsoft Outlook Express:
Open up Outlook ExpressSelect "Tools" from the top menu
 - Select "Accounts"
 -
Select the "Mail" tab at the top
 - Select your email account and press the "Properties" button on the right
 - Now choose the "Advanced" tab
 - In the top box, which should read "Outgoing Mail (SMTP)" and have an entry of "25", change this number to 1045
 - Now press "Ok" and then "Close"
Your emails should not be working on port 1045
.



Microsoft Office Outlook:
Open up Outlook ExpressSelect "Tools" from the top menu
- Select "Account Settings"
-
Select the "E-mail" tab at the top
- Select your email account and press the "Change" button at the top
- Now choose the "More Settings" button at the bottom right
- Select the "Advanced" tab at the top right

- In the 2nd box, which should read "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" and have an entry of "25", change this number to 1045
- Now press "Ok", "Next" and then "Finish"
Your emails should not be working on port 1045
