I try to configure a ML Server and want it to configured aas a mail server. So I configured DNS names, mail domains, Users and so on.


Now when I try to configure a mail client to receive mails via IMAP the server won't respond. So I tested all open ports on/to the server. Now I noticed that port 110 and 143 is not open. So any 1 knows how to open these ports in ML?


OS X 10.8.2 (Build 12C54) and Server 2.1.1 (Build 12S365)


Many thanks for any informations.



virtual Mac OS X Server, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    If you're connecting from outside your network, the ports have to be forwarded on your router. Note also that some ISP's block incoming traffic on well-known ports unless you have a business account.
