Sorry, I do not see your screenshot.

Any example to have 2 ports together, for SMTP.

In my previous post, there waa a screenshot, lookitup and take a look at it, it has redmarkings for SSL assignment but you can also see the Ports i had setup.

You need port
25 SMTP with STARTTLS optional
and
587 SMTP with STRTTLS required

I dont know howto explain it simpler to you, because i mentioned it repeatedly in other posts but your doesnt understand it or refuse to do it.

after having put
Telnet smtp.searchhouselive.Com 25
to hosts file.
Can you show your entire hosts file

To be honest, I don't think that you meet the technical knowledge component required to run a mail server, and that you should uninstall hmailserver before some spammer takes control of it
See the bottom of this page >> https://www.hmailserver.com/documentati ... quirements
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

It is now fine to send out messages. Before this, it was also fine to send out messages.

/Case closed

We solved the Problem in a Teamviewer session.

Main Problem was

The User is running Active Directory on the same Computer as hMailServer, which has setup a Primary Domain Forrest with its own
Microsoft DNS-Server. The Installation Assistant of Active Directory added Microsrofts DNS-Server as primary DNS-Server but the User
purchased a external Webhostingpackage which had exactly the same DNS name as the Active Directoy Domain

For example:
Instead of using the Broadband DSL/Cable-Routers DNS-Server or Googles public DNS-Server (IP: 8.8.8.8) it pointed to itself
to local loopback Adapter (127.0.0.1) which of cause responded to DNS entries about the local Active Directory DNS-Domain
but doesnt know anything about the external, outside Webhosting package on the Internet.

The Solution was to add the Googles Public DNS-Server (IP 8.8.8.8) first in order and secondary the local Active Directory
MS-DNS-Server with Ip address (127.0.0.1) to make sure Active Directory doesnt fail.

After this, the missing MX Record of the external Webhosting Package DNS-Server could be resolved.
Additional, the Ports 25 (STARTTLS optional) and 587 and Port 143 (with Port STARTTLS Required) had to be opened by the
Windows Firewall and that it was.

User is happy and hMailServer is up and running.
