View Full Version : Macbook keeps changing SMTP port

02-14-2014, 02:37 PM
Her iMail setting was automatic...suddenly she's getting authentication errors.

If I set the SMTP server to a hard 465 it works fine for a while...then stops and I notice the port has changed to 25.

Set it back to 465 and it works fine...until it somehow changes on it's own back to 25.

Sounds like automatic updates. I don't know Macs at all to suggest how to lock your settings when the software updates.

Is there an option to make the 465 the default setting

Can't help, sorry but have the same problem on this iPad with one of my mail accounts
Solved it on the PC by changing that accounts SMTP as you suggest,,,, from what I can see on the iPad , only the incoming port # can be changed in the advanced settings , I see no place to change the SMTP port,,, :wall:

If I find a fix I'll post here
