how do you change the port that the email server uses?

since so many isps block port 25 i know you can do this on MT...just how?


this does NOT work:

/tool e-mail send to=blah@blah.com server="209.138.93.102:2525" from="jdfo@cdoxddf.net" subject="PUBLIC user login" body="your netwatch checked ip here"

tks

mmm... dst-nat =) use your MT server as mail server and dst-nat port 25 on your MT to any port on any server

DST-NAT is not applied to the packets, that are sent by the router itself.

so... you have to use 2 MTs in pair =) as we can see, paired MTs work wonders =)

Erm... Port 25 is the standard email port. There's no reason to change that... Instead MT RouterOS should support SMTPS for ISPs that block that port.

the reason is that you need it here and now, and you cannot wait until ROS would support smtps

Outbound block? Use the ISPs SMTP.

what if ISP does not have any, or its service is paid?
