Question about NetGear DG814 DSL Modem Internet Gateway Router
Posted by Anonymous on
In some circumstances NETGEAR routers check to ensure the source and destination of email messages are not the same address. If this happens, the router's logging messages are discarded. (The Reference Manual is not clear on this.) An easy way to solve this is to choose a different email server for the router's "Send to This E-mail Address" field. So if "Your Outgoing Mail Server" is mail.myisp.com (as shown in the manual) then DO NOT use email@example.com for the "Send to This E-mail Address" field. Instead, use an email account you have on another server, such as hotmail. E.g., make the send field firstname.lastname@example.org.The other way to solve this is to explicitly open the ports for SMTP and POP, 110 and 25. By default, these ports are closed on NETGEAR routers. (Other, non-NETGEAR related email problems are also solved by opening these ports.)
