  • Testing SMTP Port? How can I make sure that it is open...

    I can send emails from home and starbucks but not from my library. I am suspecting that they do not let us send emails other than using our library email accounts. If that is the case how can I test that I can reach myhosting.com SMTP server?

    Thanks

    In Windows, if you go to Start -> Run -> CMD then at the prompt type:

    Code:
    telnet smtp.YOURDOMAIN.COM 25
    Make sure to replace yourdomain.com with your actual domain name. If you see something like this after you run the command, then you're OK.
    Code:
    220 xmailXX.myhosting.com ESMTP  648143d3667b3045487bb901cdbbf649
    Then you can type
    Code:
    quit
    And close the window. If you don't see the response from myhosting.com, then your provider is probably blocking port 25. In some cases when your ISP blocks port 25, you can use our Alternate Port SMTP instead.
