    Default smtp port problem

    Hi all,

    I installed Zimbra desktop (windows) yesterday.

    My hosting company uses port 225 for outgoing mail / SMTP

    Zimbra comes up with an error saying 'some values are incorrect' and i had to resort back to port 25.

    The reason they use port 225 aswell as 25 is some internet ISPs here block 25. So if i go to a customer and use their wifi, its quite common that under port 25 i can't send mail.

    Is this a bug or am i doing something wrong?

    Thanks

    Hi thanks

    I've had a look on the wiki but i don't think its an authentication error, just that zimbra desktop does't accept port 225 as a vaild value?

    or am i reading that completely wrong? (9.40 in the morning, brain is yet to warm up!)

    We do allow changing ports to anything you want. When you see "some values are incorrect", are there any field highlight in red? You can send us a screenshot of the error as well. Thanks!

    Hi

    i had a look on the wiki as suggested but that appears to be regarding authentication (unless i am reading it wrong).

    Zimbra is on a laptop which is currently at home and no vnc.

    When i get back i will take a screen shot for you.

    No fields were in red, but it would only save/accept when i changed back to port 25

    Ah, much better. It looks like a bug. Could you file a bug with the screenshot? Thanks for catching this!
