I cannot connect to any SMTP servers from my Windows 2008 R2 Server.
I cannot telnet to a server. I even installed Thunderbird and it cannot connect to the server.
I know the server credentials and email account details are correct as I used them to connect from my Win7 machine without incident.
I need to be able to access SMTP servers for Wordpress to be able to send emails.
I added an outbound rule to that allows ports 25, 465, 3535 and 587 (GoDaddy SMTP ports) to connect outbound to any IP and to use any internal port numbers. But, still no love... (I have not rebooted - is that necc?)
Any ideas as to what I am missing here? I just know it is something to do with the server security, I just don't know what.
