    Hello,

    How do I activate another port for incoming mail? Say I wanted to activate port120 for incoming mail.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    There isn't a feature in WHM to accomplish this, however you can do it manually.

    Why do you need incoming mail to head over a different port?

    port confusion

    I am not positive that i do need to send mail to a different port. Maybe you could help me understand this better.

    I have about ten accounts on this server. For half the accounts i am leaving the default mail settings alone. Those folks will be using neomail, or configuring outlook, etc.

    The rest of the accounts will be using another webmail program called gossamer mail. My understanding is that for these folks to get there mail without interfering with the default mail settings I must install another pop server and activate a different port. Here is a quote from their instructions &This is the port the POP server should attach it's self to. Most POP servers use port 110. If you already have a POP server running you may need to choose a different port here or change the port your other POP server is attached to.&

    Does this sound right to you? If so, how do i activate the different port?

    THanks for you help,
    Bob

    Don't know much about gossamer

    try http://www.gossamer-threads.com/

    I am not sure how having 2 ports would allow for mail traffic on incoming.

    I think i may be confused. The port I am talking about is the one an email client would point to in order to download messages for a SECOND pop server installed on our server. How do i set up the second pop server (not exim) so it uses a port besides 110?
