As a VPN newbie I hope someone may be able to resolve my email sending problem. Since enabling AirVPN on my Win10 PC I am unable to send emails through the Thunderbird mail outgoing server smtp.optusnet.com.au Port:25 (Optusnet default). Changing to Port:587 (Thunderbird default) does not resolve the problem. The Thunderbird error dialogue is: Send Message Error Sending of the message failed because the connection to Outgoing sever (SMTP) smtp.optusnet.com.au timed out. Try again. All incoming pop3 emails are received normally. Is the problem generated by my ISP connection being in Australia and the AirVPN tunnel exiting in Canada? Any solutions?
Hi all, I've searched the website and forums and I've found some posts (like https://airvpn.org/topic/1514-sending-mail-through-vpn/ and https://airvpn.org/topic/5318-thunderbird-refuses-to-send-mail/) regarding opened ports and sending of mail. Although there's some hinting that ports 465 or 587 should be usable, I'm actually looking for an explicit "yes, port 587 is opened" and I haven't found it yet. We're considering switching over to AirVPN because we'd like more inbuilt support in the VPN instead of having to bypass VPN for these, but we'd like to really really know for sure before we switch. So... which ports are open to us via the VPN tunnel when we switch to AirVPN? Thank you kindly
I am on AirVPN with OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks and Apple's Mail.app. I have no trouble sending (and receiving) email through Apple's iCloud and Yahoo. However, every time I try to send email through an Exchange SMTP server while I am on AirVPN, it fails. Why is that?
