Well, I guess I won't be getting the named port to work anytime soon.

I already had SSL on my server.

I just named smtps as mail, connected to mail.domainname over port 465 and
it all seems to be working.

Thank you Shawn.

Hi Michelle,

  I'm familiar with Optimum's blocking of port 25, since I use their
service as well. In my case, I want to have my outbound mail encrypted for
the first hop, so I've enabled SMTP over SSL. This runs over port 465 by
default anyhow, so it takes care of both problems. If that's too much work,
I'd suggest you just forget about named ports, and just use a different,
likely high numbered port in sendmail.cf:

  - Change, or add a second Daemon line that looks something like:

DAEMON_OPTIONS(`Name=MTA, Addr=[masked], Port=9852')

  Where 9852 is the port you want to listen on. Then change it on your mail
client as well.

hth
Shawn

Send test e-mail message: Outlook could not connect to the outgoing mail
server (SMTP). The problem could be your SSL or port settings for the
outgoing server. Verify your port and SSL settings under More Settings on
the Advanced tab.



I checked. I am using for smtp omail.domainname and the new port for SMTP.

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?
