Not sure how to classify this or how to properly explain this so I apologize in advance if things don't sound right or are over-explained. It happens :)
Setting up an email server (hMailServer) on an XP box. The DNS has resolved so I can access the url and I can ping it no problem. I'm sending emails to the server from another box and works again, no problem. I disabled the router firewall (for testing) and disabled windows firewall (for testing) and I'm still not able to access ports 110 or 143.
I can telnet to 25 just fine and if I try on the box running hMailServer I can telnet just fine. I'm out of ideas right now so I'm looking for suggestions on what else to look at.
And since I consider myself paranoid I even built the exceptions into the firewall (both router and windows) even though they are disabled. Still nothing and I'm pretty frustrated.
Thanks in advance.
