    I need some help configuring Mozilla Thunderbird for LnS. I use ports 995 and 587. When I add the rule for port 995, I should put 'tcp or all?'......

    I'm not sure how to configure it correctly, I've tried many things but it doesn't work. When I login to thunderbird it says username and password not accepted.

    I check log in LnS but nothing came up.

    Are you setting it up for pop 3 email? If so I'm sure you will need to use port 110...o_O :)

    Hi dpt.larry :)

    The rule should be like this:

    Protocol: TCP
    packets: in and out
    Address: From my @IP
    Local ports: between 1024 to 5000
    remote ports: equal or 587, 995
    application: Mozilla Thunderbird <<== it's important to add this program in the rule with the "applications..." button, list on the left...

    In TB, account parameters:

    pop.gmail.com 995 and ssl enabled

    In the smtp parameters:

    smtp.gmail.com 587 and TLS enabled

    Please remark that this specific rule is not mandatory with the LNS enhanced rule set since all these TCP packets are examinded by the general rule "Allow most common internet programs".

    Hope this help. Let us know.

    :)

    Hi Mongol :)


    These ports are used by Gmail.

    This email service used secured connections to transmit and receive emails.
    (Instead of transmitting and receiving in clear over internet like pop3 and smtp...)

    POP3S on port 995 (ssl)
    and
    SMTP TLS on (non-standard) port 587 .
    This TLS smtp port is diffferent depending on which emailer you're using...

    :)
