I have recently signed up to host my website with a company that uses cPanel. I haven't been able to get a hold of anyone there (looks like a scam) since I signed with them 3 weeks ago. I love the interface of cPanel but the instructions suck. I have the following problem related to my email:
Can't get email - I tried the autoconfig of Outlook and this did not work. Much to my chagrin cPanel's instructions don't tell you how to set it up manually. I have configured many a POP3 account so I wasn't worried about doing it on my own but it would be nice to know what ports are used for incoming and outgoing mail.
I set the incoming and outgoing mail servers to mail.mydomain.com as it states. Using the standard 110 and 25 as my port numbers I can receive email but can not send. I have multiple email accounts through other domains and their respective mail servers configured to work on this exact same machine using a port number other than 25 for SMTP. What I mean is I do not have to use my ISP's outgoing mail server (smtp.west.cox.net) on these other domains but I don't use port 25.
How can I fix this problem?
