  • hi,

    Can you connect from a mail client to these services with the same ports from that computer? I'm/was able to use Gmail for database mail. Sometimes ISP's block some ports (eg 25) or your firewall blocks all these.

    I hope it helps.


    There are 10 type of people. Those who understand binary and those who do not.

  • Yes I can connect using telnet + open 587

    Also SSIS (Sql Server Integration Services) connects fine.

    Thanks for the suggestion though, any other idea?
