View Full Version : Logging off causes port 25 problems when logging in again

I've noticed that at the office when I log off for the day, and leave
the machine running for remote log in later, if I then log in locally the
following day for example, my email retrieval is not connecting. (Socket
Error)
I'm still able to connect to the internet though.
It's only fixed when I shut down and restart the PC. Then everything works
fine. It did work ok originaly, and no changes have been made recently.
I have a hardware firewall (Watchguard), and am guessing that somehow it's
blocking port 25 when the PC is logged off and logged back in again.

Any clues to this problem would be appreciated.

Cheers

Nick
