I have just got my broadband returned to telecom from Vodafone - believe it or not the big time plan is significantly faster than my capped plan with vodafone.

Everything is working fine except I cannot receive emails on port 25 - I have opted out, my username and password is correct in the router, i've rebooted multiple times but still no luck.

I have spoken to telecom support people about this and they can't see any problems.

Anyone got any ideas?

Typo? You mean send, right? as in SMTP? otherwise if you really are trying to recieve something on port 25 then you'll likely have other issues around NAT/Port forwarding to look at before someone/something out on the net will be able to connect to your machine on port 25 from the outside.

I've not found any opt out procedure from Telecom, but found it easier to use other ports. Some hosters allow port 26 for smtp, 465 for SSL SMTP, or 563 to TLS SMTP. You might have to find a combination that works for you.

I've just gone through this exercise myself moving from another hoster (that accepted port 26) to google apps (gmail).

Can't get a static IP on the big time plan (as is my understanding) I use DNS Exit to resolve the domain names to my IP address.

I haven't specifically used telnet as all other services work correctly, HTTP, HTTPS, Outlook Anywhere, PPTP VPN all fine off site.

I have signed up to DNS exit's port changing service which now delivers my mail on port 26 and that works just fine.

It's the telecom port 25 filtering that's causing me grief.

Is it possible that the opt out only covers outbound connections, and not inbound? i.e. the typical scenario for SMTP? have you attempted to send via port 25 at all?

Nope happy to forward send email to xtra's smtp server but want to receive emails direct to my exchange server via a dynamic dns service.

Cheers

Hear what you are saying but even though i'm opted out I can't do either, I have tried sending directly and it won't work.

When I was wiith xtra perviously (eg. about a year ago) the opt out meant that I could both send and receive.

Sounds like you're on to it. My only experience was the same, a few years ago on Xtra - and it worked fine then.

Might be time to log a fault. Hopefully one of the Telecom guys will see this on Monday ;)

When I mention Telnet I meant you would be connect to another network (not Telecom) and use Telnet to open a connection to port 25 (not to the Telnet port). This will definitely tell you if other networks can or cannot see your port 25.
