Hi,

My ISP is blocking normal connections to SMTP ports (normal 25 and secure). Is it possible to use some other secure port to connect to use KOC. For example, if I setup KMS to port 666 as Secure SMTP port, can I also setup KOC to use SSL and port is 666?

You could have just tried it or (God forbid!) look in the manual...

Short answer: yes.

Hi again,

the problem was that our company firewall was blocking access to port 465. Now port is open and I can connect to Secure SMTP using Outlook (without KOC), Thunderbird and Opera email clients, but if I use Outlook with KOC I cannot send messages althought I have Use SSL Connection checked and I changed SMTP port to 465. Bug in KOC?

You don't have to change the SMTP port for secure SMTP. Try 25 again.

Disregard. I didn't see that your ISP blocks 25.

In my case, I had to use SMTP for example when I'm traveling or visiting customer's offices. My operator blocks incoming SMTP connections to my static IP address (leased from operator). All other ports are open. So, I have to use some other port or change SMTP server address every time I'm on road (depending what operator I'm using).

My customer (where I'm visiting ofter) opened Secure SMTP port from their network to my computer and I like to use KOC (because of Calendar and etc.) for connecting my mailbox. One solution might be that I add port 465 to normal SMTP and use that instead of Secure SMTP. As I already told, Secure SMTP works fine without KOC using Outlook.
