Seems the IT person could tell you what port & what kind of Authentication is required!?
The receiving email ports are:
IMAP is port 143
IMAP-SSL is port 993
POP is port 110
POP-SSL is port 995
SMTP and SMTP-SSL is on ports 25, 587 and 465. Port 587 has to be SSL, and port 465 is enforced TLS-wrapped and is generally used by Outlook users.
Currently Being ModeratedJun 4, 2010 8:56 AM (in response to BDAqua)Thank you sooo much for getting back to me. I am back to trying to figure this out.
I have tried to set it up with the mentioned settings without success.
I think the problem is with the Outgoing Mail Server address that was given to me by the IT person - "webmail.outdoordimensions.com".
Typically, when setting accounts up, I have used an address respective to the web access provider - i.e. "smtp.att.yahoo.com". However, this "Exchange" account is something very new to me.
Thanks again for your help. Also what is "TLS-wrapped"? I didn't find a setting option for this.Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)

AHA! I'm pretty sure no Mail app can be used, that's for use in a Browser, might see if they have something like these...
Also what is "TLS-wrapped"?
It's automatic if you use port 465 going out, which is moot since they only gave you a webmail addy.
Currently Being ModeratedJun 7, 2010 3:57 PM (in response to BDAqua)I didn't like it but i finally had to load entourage and as I was setting up an "Exchange" account, at no point did the setup ask for an SMTP. So then why does the mac mail client ask for a SMTP?
Come to think of it, my iphone didn't ask for it either. Strange.
I love mac's, always have and probably always will, but I really don't understand this difference.Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
