 set or confirm that your mail reader is using the correct ports to access the mail server:

  • If your mail reader does not support SSL, use port 110 for POP3, port 143 for IMAP, and port 25 for SMTP.

    Some sites block off port 25 with their firewall. As an alternative, you can try accessing the Nevis mail server via port 587.

  • If your mail reader supports SSL, use port 995 for POP3 and port 993 for IMAP. You can use the same ports for SMTP with or without SSL: 25 normally, 587 if a site has blocked port 25; the mail server can recognize when your mail program wants to use SSL and make the switch.

    You can also use port 465 with SSL/TLS. Try this if neither ports 25 nor 587 seem to work when sending mail via SSL (Outlook Express is an example).

  • If your mail reader supports TLS or SSL, use port 995 for POP3 and port 993 for IMAP. You can use the same ports for SMTP with or without SSL: 25 normally, 587 if a site has blocked port 25; the mail server can recognize when your mail program wants to use SSL and make the switch.

    You can also use port 465 for SMTP+SSL. Try this if neither ports 25 nor 587 seem to work when sending mail via SSL (Outlook Express is an example).

  • If your mail reader does not support SSL, get a modern mail reader. If you can't, use port 110 for POP3, port 143 for IMAP, and port 25 for SMTP.

    Some sites block off port 25 with their firewall. As an alternative, you can try accessing the Nevis mail server via port 587.

 
  • If you are using a non-Nevis mail server, connect to port 587 of that mail server. Our firewall blocks off port 25 to any other mail servers.
