Can't send email (from my IP)

    Yo!

    After spending many days with cPanel tech support people, I thought I would ask the cPanel community if they had any ideas.

    Ok, I cann't send email from my computer, or any computer on my network, using any combination of settings.

    I logged on to my neighbor's wireless network for a sec (bad me, I know), and there I could send mail flawlessly using the same settings as I have previously.

    Exact error:
    Code:
    Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: '140.186.181.65', Server: 'mail.number1host.net', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10053, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
    Port 26 does not work either, and SMTP Tweak is disabled.

    So it has something to do with the server not liking my IP.

    Ideas?

    Thanks!

    Its very possible that your ISP (but not your wireless neighbor) is blocking outgoing mail on port 25.

    As a quick test, I would try:

    1) WHM >> Service Configuration >> Service Manager >> exim on another port. Use 587 which is a "standard" for authenticated smpt connections.

    2) Make certain in your email client you change the advanced options to use 587 as the Outgoing Server SMTP port.

    Give that a go and report back ...

    That port works!

    But I know my ISP dosn't block port 25, as their own connections run on port 25 and work fine.

    Thanks for your help, I suppose I'll have to use that for now - amazing in 28 miniutes, someone fixed my problems that cPanel couldn't do in a week.

    of course they wouldn't block their own SMPT only remote

    Guess that explains why the cPanel people had it working for them - must be the ISP.

    Thanks for all your help!

    Go to http://www.cpanel.net/support/index.htm and read Support Guidelines. If you have followed these guidelines, you wouldn't have to wait for a week.

    The Guidelines suggest that I look into the support forums. Which I did, I searched and did not find the answer.
