I was told by everyone not to change smtp to another port to get around the fact that my ISP blocks outgoing mail on port 25.
So, what I gather is that I need to create a new named port for sending email, so I’ve picked a new port.
Then, I need to configure send mail to use that port.
I added to /etc/services:
oml port#/tcp omail
oml port#/udp omail
Then I added to the dns records
omail.domainname A ip address
Domainnae MX(10) omail.domainname
However, when I try to connect to omail.domainname from Outlook I get an error.
Were there any other steps I need to create a new port to connect to?
So I’m guessing, I have to replace smtp with oml in my sendmail.cf and sendmail.mc files.
Is there anything else I have to do?
Is any of this wrong?
Will this work?
