Outgoing mail requires specific port: how to specify?

Recommended Posts

My outgoing mail server requires a specific port number. However, in the 10.5 Retrospect preference mail panel, there is only an entry for the outgoing mail server (no port number entry is displayed). I tried adding a colon after the mail server name followed by the port number, but Retrospect does not successfully send a mail message. Is there a way to specify the port number?


I've been unable to make the mail feature work.


Thank you for any insight you might have!

Thank you for your suggestion! However, when I replaced the DNS with its IP address and appended it with a colon followed by the port number, Retrospect reported it did not find the server. I assume this is because it was trying to use the colon and port number as part of the IP address.
