Change the SMTP port on Panther Server
Authored by: eagle on Dec 30, '04 11:16:14AM

Since SMTP is a standard service defined as using port 25, what is the benefit of doing this? It's not like any other server, trying to send mail to you, will know to connect on port 2525. What am I missing here?

Using a mail reflector service like the one No-IP.com provides makes you able to run your own mail server (on a static or dynamic IP) even if your ISP block incoming mail on port 25. This is how I use it for the last 2 years without any problems so far.
