    Just found out from some of my clients that ISP's are now starting blocking email ports from other hosts that are not the ISP's domains.

    Ports that are being blocked are

    SMTP Ports: 25, 587, Not sure about 465

    POP3 Ports: 110, 995

    IMAP Ports: 143, 993

    SMTP is easy get around this issue in WHM. But how about POP3 and IMAP ports?

    Centrylink was bought out by Quest so they are blocking ports from above. About 30% of my clients are having issues in get their email.

    Hello :)

    I suggest having the client contact the ISP to see if these ports can be unblocked. It's possible the ISP only blocks them by default, and will disable the block on a per-request basis.

    Thank you.
