Beginning on November 15, 2017, Azure blocks all outgoing Port 25 for accounts see http://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/mast/20 ... 17-update/Error Type: SMTP
Connection to recipients server failed.
Error: Host name: <ip address>, message: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond
Tried 5 time(s)
Using Telnet as recommended in the troubleshooting guide confirms that on the Azure VM Port 25 is blocked and Port 587 is not.
So how can hMailServer can be configured to use Port 587 for outgoing, and what security settings are required by Gmail, Outlook and other servers?
Yes, I could use the Marketplace version, but won't Azure bill me for that? I'm just an experimenter on "free" PAYG Azur
Thanks for any help.
