I was trying to troubleshoot why my iPhone was unable to send email through smpt ssl. I read that you have to forward port 587 to the exchange server. I saw that this was being blocked. I tried all possible options and created the Allow Rule as I did hundreds of times, but for some reason it keeps denying the connection when I look at it in the logging screen. same message keeps popping up.
Just a note: Exchange Activesync works just fine, without problems. I am trying to make the IMAP account work because iPhone only allows one Exchange account, and I want to use it for the google new sync services. IMAP SSL over port 993 works fine, and I am able to receive emails. The problem is with sending email, as it never seems to connect.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Thanks for all the help. This is rule 1 so its not the rule order that is causing this.
