Hi

 

Norton's antivirus 2010 is out of beta now as of a couple of days ago, at least in the USA. Besides, I have system works 12 which is 2009, so I have Norton's Antivirus 2009. I don't use betas of anything if I can help it. You can only turn on email scanning or turn it off.. I only have one computer. If you change the port to 587, it will not scan the emails that are going out.. However the program is always scanning what is in your computer. What doesn't show is the visible sign of the scanning when not using 25. I use Outlook Express.

 


 

 

Interesting..

 

I am saying you must change the port, but if you do.. Be sure to save any attachments to your hard drive, then have Norton scan them to be sure if they are safe - before opening any attachment(s).

 

Since you said you use OE (Outlook Express)...

 

#1 In OE, go to Tools -> Options -> Read.

 

#2 Make sure that, automaticlly download message when viewing in the preview pane is not checked.

 

Press ok/apply.

 

#2 To save the message: When you select message, go to File -> Save as.

 

#3 When viewing the message, to save it... Click on the icon that looks the one that you see in the screen shot and select save attachment..

Hello,

I am having a little trouble understanding who needs to change ports for outgoing mail.

I only have one email address which is verizon.net and I use windows mail on vista to send and receive my emails.

Do I need to change my ports?  I am having trouble getting a straight answer and all I really need to know is yes or no.

Please if anyone can help I would really appriciate it.

Thanks

T

Yes you do, if your ISP is Verizon.

Accoring to information previously posted to one of the Verizon "0" hierarchy NNTP newsgroups, the switch to Port 587 is only effecting certain states at this time, and only under certain circumstances.

 

If you have not received any notification to switch top Port 587, you should be able to continue on Port 25 without any problems.

 

One thing that may effect some people is mail relaying.  This would be when you use Verizon's mail servers but are connecting (relaying) to another company's mail system.  This is a trick often used by spammers so they are plugging that hole.

 

If you have a mail system that is not based at Verizon, such as your own mail and web hosting service, yopu will not be effected.

 

I am in the Verizon East territory in New England and we ar estill using Port 25 and have not been told to do otherwise, so until I am told, I won't be changing anything.

 

In any event, my Verizon address is not used at all so I am not effected in any way.

 

*** Note that the Verizon "0" newsgroups are being closed along with all of Usenet access on Sept 30.  Many of the former users may show up here or in the Verizon Forum at DSL Reports.

It is confusing - I still dont know the answer. I have Verizon as my ISP but dont use the email address. According to the note I received, I should change the port on all my emails in outlook if they ARE NOT my verizon email. After changing the ports on those, my email was no longer sent so I put it back to 25 and everything worked fine.

 

For a communications company....verizon sure lacks good communication...no matter what problem or question you have for them.

You should be fine as it does not appear that Port 25 is being blocked for those using Verizon e-mail.  For more details see http://www22.verizon.com/ResidentialHelp/HighSpeed/General+Support/Top+Questions/QuestionsOne/124274...

my moms email just stopped sending and I am thinking this might be the cause. She uses the incoming and outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net servers. I don't understand why she is using yahoo (since she uses nothing else for yahoo). Just wondering if I should change her ports according to this document.

thanks,

Jeff

I have a Verizon email address but I never use it.  I only use my MSN and Gmail addresses.  And I manage my email addresses with Windows Live Mail.  Will I be effected by this Port 25 thing?

As you can see information is very conflicting.....I had thought that because my ISP is verizon and I do use the verizon.net email address that I would not have to change anything.  I do use Windows Mail/ Outlook to send and receive email using my verizon.net email address.

 

I still don't know the correct answer and am worried about problems that might come up if I don't figure it out.
