Here's the deal: An elderly gentleman I know went and got a telkom account a few years ago. He recently got a new pc, and got me to transfer everything for him from his old one. Everything seems to be working properly except the email. He can receive emails but not send them. I have tried all of the following SMTP servers: smtp.dsl.telkomsa.net, smtp.telkomsa.net, smtp.saix.net, mail.saix.net. Telkom said he should use smtp.telkomsa.net. He has Nod32 installed as an antivirus.
Could it be that the email protection settings is screwing with connecting to the server? Thanks
