    Enrico Neri wrote a new blog post: SMTP not working   3 years, 9 months ago

    do you experience problem on ELDY email, getting a “check connection settings”?

    that might be because ELDY by default uses SMTP 25 tcp port.

    Some providers prefer to allow only authenticated SMTP, to avoid spam.
    Just set your ELDY with the following settings (obviously use your password and settings!)

    Hi

    it might be you experience a strange situation, in which email and chat works, while other component (e.g. “surf the web”, “eldytv” etc) don’t work.

    that is very probably because you have an antivirus Norton active.

    Go in the Norton menu, select firewall  and set the following rules in the application rules:
