Hello, I am trying to send out emails from outlook 2007, but i get an error that says that the connection to the smtp server timed out. My POP3 and SMTP are the ip address of the server. I know the configuration is correct because it is the same configuration I use successfully on other computers. No SSL or SPA is required. My POP3 connects through port 110 and my SMTP through port 25.
I have a cable modem, which then connects to a wireless linksys router. The cable modem is a motorola one. I have tried port forwarding like this:
Outlook start: 25 end: 25 protocol: both ip address: 192.168.1.100 enable
Outlook2 start: 110 end:110 protocol: both ip address: 192.168.1.100 enable
I did an ipconfig, and that ip address above is the ip of this computer over the network. this is very frustrating, please help!
