Port 25 Access

Hi. I can't:
telnet 25 which is my mail server.

I can:
telnet which is a rival (but not who i pay the bills to!)

On speaking with Paradise/TelstraClear, they INSIST that they do not perform any port 25 block/filtering and the issue is with my PC. I can't accept that, as I can seem to telnet other sites over the same port.

Have uninstalled ALL virus software, rebooted many times etc.. etc... still the same Cannot Connect.

Come on you GURUS!!!

Re: Port 25 Access

Are you running windows XP with the default windows firewall in operation? It is accessible from control panels -- could it be blocking/filtering port 25 -- this is not as much of a solution as a place for you to look on your machine -- I am running a 3rd party firewall that disables the windows firewall.

Live Mail - xtra mail login

As evident from the message, you are getting the error 0x800CCC92 in Windows Live Mail because the password you had entered is not correct. Or, in other words, the password provided to the email client does not match the account username.
Thus, to solve the Windows Live Mail error 0x800CCC92, you have to double check both the password and the user ID (username) you had supplied when the email account was set up. Please understand that in order to access your email account successfully, the login information has to be correct.

Error Ox800CCC78

Are you using Outlook Express or another email program (like Microsoft's Live Mail)? What ISP are you connecting to ( (formerly Hotmail),

This is a symptom of a security mismatch. The exact solution will depend on the answers to the questions above. Most likely, you either need to change the port from the default one. You also may need to change the encryption/authentication protocol. These settings may be under different sections of the email program setup menus. (They will be in the Advanced settings of the Server Settings/SMTP settings section of the program. Check under Tools)

For example, uses port 995, instead of 110 for the pop3 server. The outgoing SMTP server needs to be accessed at port 587, instead of 25. You need to include your full email address in your user settings for both the incoming and outgoing mail. See for some details of the Hotmail/Outlook/Live Mail configurations.

Please add some comments with your specific situation for a better solution. I hope this helps.

The SMTP server returned an error. Account: '', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '-ERR Permission Denied', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC60

Most SMTP-servers will give "permission" to be used only when your computer is connected via an IP-address assigned to you (statically or dynamically) by the Internet Service Provider.

So, if you are using wireless Internet access, maybe provided at some retail location, rather than connected by Ethernet cable to '012.NET.IL', or wirelessly within your own home, using your own wireless router, you will get this error-message, when you try to "send" E-mail.

I cannot send email to using yahoo account

You must allow your router access to send out mail. other wise it will keep the messages you send in the outbox. go to your router setup or type your router ip address in the internet browser and manually enable the port 465 you may have to goto applications and games tab if you have a linksys router. Also enable ports 80 for internet,25 for simplemail transport protocol (SMTP),110(e-mail),443secure (bank account information) this will allow the router the proper ablity to send and recieve e-mails.
