      Running A Mail Server

      Hi all.

      I'm currently considering a move to sky broadband now that my local exchange has been recently unbundled, but I run a Microsoft Exchange server at home and I'd like to continue doing so. I therefore need port 25 for incoming mail, and port 80 for webmail / remote activesync.

      I've read in several posts that sky block a few ports including the two which are most important to me, but everytime someone mentions the port blocking there always seem to be a couple of responses indicating that this isn't the case.

      Can anyone with first-hand experience of this tell me if these ports are in fact blocked?

      Thanks in advance for your help!

      we dont block any ports, anyone who says we do is incorrect/misinformed

      however, Sky BB should not be relied upon for any commercial/critical use as it's a consumer service.....just so you know

      you may, however, have to open the ports on the router - but i'm not 100% sure on this

      Re: Running A Mail Server

      That's cool.

      It's hardly commercial use, it's more a method of being able to access my email, calendar and contacts from wherever I happen to be, and keeping my PDA sync'd while I'm out and about. I can cope with the router settings involved because I have my current router set up like this already.

      Time for me to go and get myself a MAC code then...

      Just to let you know aswell, I have personally ran a Mail Server on Sky on the 25 Port and it works fine.
