Webmail port blocking


Recommended Posts

Unfortunately for me, my company's firewall pretty much blocks everything outside of the bare minimum. So when I go to http://www.domain.com/webmail and watch it redirect to http://lightning.hawkhost.com:2096 I get blocked by my firewall.Anyone here have any ideas for accessing webmail in a blocked network? Such as:

1) Can I redirect to another port somehow?

2) Maybe some sort of proxy?

Just curious if anyone else here has had similar issues, thanks!

Never mind, found out I could just use webmail.mydomain.com :-) it's insecure but I'm not too worried. Thanks anyways!

It looks like you figured out the proxy - I'd suggest trying to use a mail client with SSL/TLS to see if those ports are open as it's generally a good idea to access your mail via an encrypted channel :).
