Who uses Bell Sympatico? do they allow users to host their own mail server? BECUASE i got a friend who's got rogers, and we'r using the same mail server-- his works perfectly (send/recieve)-- but mine doesn't work!
Only internally!

does it have anything to do with networking or firewalls? maybe thats the case. The same thing happens to my ftp server if I didn't reconfigure my router.

Nope, i checked it.
Everything is FINE the diagnostics say everything is PERFECT.

If i put the outgoing mail server as i can send mails.
If i put he incoming mail server as i can't recieve..both ways, with or without.

Now i don't know if this has anything to do with zonealarm.. but the router is all fixed it works perefectly... is there soemthing i have to do with zonealarm so ti allows it to recieve and send emails???? ANYONE PLEASE HELP

try turning off zonealram and trying it, if it works then it is the firewall eltes, it is somting messed up with sympactio or your webserver or the addres u using.

... wen u shut down zonealarm make sure u get the True vector secuirity agent too eh?!.....

anways.... why dont u phone them and get the to help??? im shure they could do a better job..... unless BELL sucks for tech support.....

iu have shaw and theyve helped me with all my problems... maybe expensive for tier 3 cable plus fast internet... but.... works good...

their phone service takes anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours ..... :sigh:
