  1. A port number represents an endpoint or "channel" for network communications. Port numbers allow different applications on the same computer to utilize network resources without interfering with each other.
Port numbers most commonly appear in network programming, particularly socket programming. Sometimes, though, port numbers are made visible to the casual user. For example, some Web sites a person visits on the Internet use a URL like the following:
http://www.mairie-metz.fr:8080/ In this example, the number 8080 refers to the port number used by the Web browser to connect to the Web server. Normally, a Web site uses port number 80 and this number need not be included with the URL (although it can be). In IP networking, port numbers can theoretically range from 0 to 65535. Most popular network applications, though, use port numbers at the low end of the range (such as 80 for HTTP). The port number is included as a field within the header of each IP packet. Note: The term port also refers to several other aspects of network technology. A port can refer to a physical connection point for peripheral devices such as serial, parallel, and USB ports. The term port also refers to certain Ethernet connection points, such as those on a hub, switch, or router.

2.The protocol number is used to identify the machine and a port number to identify particular applications running on that machine and To allow applications to communicate with each other, either on the same machine (using loopback) or across different hosts, each application must be individually addressable

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'pop.bizmail.yahoo.com', Server: 'pop.bizmail.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10013, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E


I believe this is caused when your router has blocked port 25.
Open your e-mail program go to the menu and click > Tools > Accounts > "your account" > Properties > Advanced. Change port 25 to either 587 > OK
If 587 doesn't work, try changing to port 467.

What does this mean (The host 'smtp' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Subject 'happy thanksgiving', Account: 'pop2', Server:...


When you want to send mail, your mail agent (e.g. Outlook or Opera Mail or Firebird) tries to authenticate with an SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol) server so it can send the mail.

You need to fill in the actual server name, account, port, and password for your ISP's smtp server so you can send mail. You receive mail via a different protocol, commonly pop3.

I am at present in Belgium, coming from Switzerland, and I am connected with a fixe net line. At the beginning I was able to receive mails but could not send them, now I don t receive neither can I send...


Try to turn off the email scanning of your Antivirus.
You may have to change the email server information over to the one that is in Belgium. Looks like your computer is still trying to use the one from Schweiz.

The connection to the server has failed. Account: 'mail.insightbb.com', Server: 'mail.insightbb.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E


You can also receive this error message when you have antivirus e-mail protection or personal firewall software enabled on your computer.
Try disabling the antivirus program through msconfig or close the antivirus program and see if you get the same error again, if not then disable email scanning and this will help you.

You are supposed to put the fully qualified domain name of the mail server in the SMTP server field, and the POP3 server field, like mail.acmellc.com and pop3.mycompanyname.com. Contact your mail service provider if you are not sure what the server names are.

I need help about a thing called port


a port is an application-specific or process-specific software construct serving as a communications endpoint used by Transport Layer protocols of the Internet Protocol Suite such as Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP). A specific port is identified by its number, commonly known as the port number, the IP address it is associated with, and the protocol used for communication
