Operate Outlook thorugh a firewall ???
Posted on 1998-10-12
I connect to my E-mail using my university as my isp and up until a week ago I could access the mail server by connecting to the internet through another isp and just telling outlook the name of the server.
Now I find that although I can successfully send mail through outlook it is being denied read access to my mail account unless I dial the uni direct This is however expensive and I would like to get around this since I could then continue to use my e-mail account from work.
The university have been, and will continue to be, very unhelpful.
I have been told that they may have implemented a firewall to prevent people from hacking into the system and being malicious. I still have a perfectly valid username and password so I am wondering is there any way I can operate outlook through this firewall without dialing direct??
Many thanks in advance
