I am using shaw.mail.ca as my outgoing mail server. It is working fine with my desktop but the same address only works intermittently on my laptop. Suggestions?
You desktop is not working with Port 110 for outgoing to Shaw's server, this I can promise you...
Incoming server uses port 110, outgoing server will be 587 or 25.
587 if you are not using a Shaw internet connection.
Ok. Does it seem to matter if your laptop is home or away from home when it works and doesn't?
My thought on this, is that you are using Port 25 non-SSL, your laptop should be using Port 587, SSL-On, password authentication.
This is my first thought that you are, using Port 25 and it is being blocked when not using a Shaw Cable internet connection.
Thanks. The laptop is not working properly at home and away.
I am using Port110, No SSL, Password on.
The outgoing server should be port 587, SSL Yes, Password on
Thanks. I just tried that and it didn't work either. Meanwhile the desktop is humming away with 110, no SSL and password on. Very strange.
Thanks. It is working now.
Awesome, good to hear.
