Hello,

Verizon is likely blocking port 25. You can test this by opening a command prompt and typing:

telnet <smtp server> 25

Replace <smtp server> with the smtp server in his email client's settings.

You should get a banner response from the server. If you can't connect, port 25 is blocked.

Also, in Outlook, Account Settings, More Settings, Outgoing Server:  Make sure the account is authenticated. So inside Verizon, the user will have to set the account to use Verizon's SMTP settings (may be a different port than port 25) and make sure the account is authenticated.

I do this for POP email. Also the settings and authentication above are common to many email applications, not just Outlook.

jjmck,

Something that I forgot to mentioned, we did run port scan on the router, all is good. No blocking, and it was working before that.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

I use POP and I need to authenticate off my home network. Almost any email tool has these settings so take a look at the settings and try.

There may be something else blocking the mail in and out of China, so the above is just a possible solution.

He needs to have a verizon account to use their SMTP server, but the settings are available here: http://www.verizon.com/Support/Residential/Internet/highspeed/email/setup+and+use/questionsone/86782.htm#

Most ISPs block port 25 for home users in the US now to reduce spam. If he doesn't have a Verizon account to authenticate against their SMTP address, he will probably need to talk to whoever provides his email and see if they have an authenticated/alternate port SMTP port available.
