I am testing outlook express with a basic firewall like Zone Alarm. I have two email accounts setup, one with no authentication neccessary for smtp and one with authentication. The one with authentication will fail if I set my firewall to restrict the OE to only ports 25 and 110. I am using Ethereal to see what exactly is going across the line and I do not see any additional ports being used by the authenticating account. When I disable the firewall, both accounts work but they do not appear to be any different in Ethereal, all the same ports etc.. Is there some process here I am missing or is it an SSL thing or what?
Thanks a million guys.
