I recently switched companies on a dedicated web server and strongly believe that they are blocking ports 25 and 110. Initially, I thought that it was my active Windows Firewall settings but reviewed them and even turned the firewall off.
Next, I checked the open status on a few different online port testing sites and both email ports were reported as closed.
Then I checked other servers IP addresses in my general ip range and email ports were all closed as well. This leads me to believe that they don't want people running email server software.
After contacting my new host, they are acting as if the problem is my fault and that they need me to get on a support maintenance plan in order to look at it.
I ran the netstat test at the link below and there is nothing listed for the pop3 or smtp sockets (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:25 or 110).
Is there a way for me to somehow check if the webhost's gateway is blocking these email ports? Thank you
