I'm using Thunderbird on an Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop, when I try and send an email from my outlook.com email account I get this message, Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp-mail.outlook.com timed out. Try again. It only seems to happen when I'm connected to the VPN, I'm able to send emails by logging in to the outlook.com web portal regardless of whether I'm connected to the VPN or not. I found the IP address for the SMTP server by running an nslookup with the server name & I got this output, Non-authoritative answer: smtp-mail.outlook.com canonical name = smtp.live.com. smtp.live.com canonical name = smtp.glbdns2.microsoft.com. Name: smtp.glbdns2.microsoft.com Address: 188.8.131.52 So I went in to account settings & changed the server name from the host name to the IP address but I'm still having the same issue. Any ideas as to what is wrong?
I have airvpn setup and my Thunderbird account is receiving and sending mail through gmail port 995 and 465. Is this secure? Does google see my home IP? I want to use the ports allocated from airvpn but could not get it working, and read that google only works with the ports above. Any advice? Do I need a new email server if I want to remain anonymous? Than you.
ok, using Ubuntu 14.04, Thunderbird, VPN through Network manager. Unable to connect to my outgoing mail server. smtp.secureserver.net / 184.108.40.206 port 465 SSL/TLS . I am unable to connect to it while on VPN (Blocked I assume), turn off VPN and I have no problem. This also seems to be the only port they offer. Is there a way to add to the settings that anything going to this address to bypass VPN via the iptables and if so how. Tried a few settings and still doesnt work. Or do I need to add a additional Netcard?
