How to send email remotely using SSH tunnel
Posted on 2008-10-01
I frequently use a public library in my town, and the firewall there prevents outgoing email from Outlook Express. I am trying to work around this using an SSH tunnel. I was able to configure the tunnel and can connect with no problems, but when I attempt to use OE to send I get "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'Home', Server: 'localhost', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 2525, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F". I have configured OE with server localhost and SMTP port 2525 (my tunnel is configured to forward local port 2525 to my mail server port 25) . I connect to the tunnel, then launch OE, but the message above is what I get. Help please...
