Hi, having problems sending emails from ntlworld address, have checked all settings and they seem correct. It is via outlook 2007. Password box keeps popping up but it is correct password as can access via webmail. Any ideas please?
If you successful authenticated yourself to the SMTP server you will see something similar to:
⋮ < 235 2.7.0 ... authentication succeeded > HELP < 214-2.0.0 This is cmsmtp ESMTP service help 214-2.0.0 This is cmsmtp ESMTP service help < 214-2.0.0 To contact postmaster send email to email@example.com. 214-2.0.0 To contact postmaster send email to firstname.lastname@example.org. < 214-2.0.0 For local information send email to Postmaster at your site. 214-2.0.0 For local information send email to Postmaster at your site. < 214 2.0.0 end of HELP info 214 2.0.0 end of HELP info * Connection #0 to host smtp.virginmedia.com left intact
however if not you will see: ⋮ < 535 5.7.8 Authentication Credentials Invalid (VM300) * Closing connection 0 curl: (67) Login denied What VM code do you see; in the example above it is VM300? Please do not be tempted to post more than the requested curl output as you will likely reveal your email address and password."
If you see the error VM305 then you have a spambot on your home network and will need finding and removing and you will need to follow -
You can check your listing yourself but there is no point requesting removal until you have found and deleted the spambot. https://www.spamhaus.org/query and type in your external IP you can gets this my typing "whats my ip" into google.
If you are running Hola VPN Free, then note But Hola Free VPN is anything but a VPN.
