I have a third party hosted site. I've set up Roundcube web mail there for the email addresses I have as part of my domains there. For those, everything works fine.
I've been trying to set up a Roundcube installation to allow me to read my firstname.lastname@example.org email, so far without success. All tests so far to:
fail with timeout, although I can read my mail with either Outlook or Thunderbird from a PC.
The third party hosting company tell me ports 993 and 465 are open to me at their end, and my tests confirm that view.
My reading of the current state of yahoo mail servers is that they are not in fact open to outside servers (only to mobile devices) and that both Outlook and Thuderbird have gateway workrounds built in because of that. Can anyone confirm?
If that is in fact the case, I'll stop tearing my hair out (what little is left ) trying to get Roundcube working for that address .
My thanks indeed, Lady (or indeed Lord ) Kitty. Or GD. Or, um...
Hmmm. Perhaps I should start again .
Yes, I know of those web mail solutions. I was trying to integrate my email@example.com into the web mail solution I've already established for my other email addresses. I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that it may not be possible at this time. Which isn't the end of the world - but would have been a 'nice-to-do'.
But my thanks indeed for the reply, and my genuine appreciation for the assistance .
I am NOT talking about the web solutions though. Those are the pop/smtp addresses for the rogers email. I currently use thos addresses in outlook, phones, tablets, and other devices to receive mail..
While again, i dont know if they will work or not with what you are trying to do.. (could have the same result, as they connect into the same email servers on yahoo for rogers), it would be worth a shot.
Not having ever used the software.. i am not familiar with what they are looking for. But i do have a background in IT.. and have worked on mail servers ranging from exchange and lotus notes, to more simple pop servers 🙂
Assuming that software can access via a basic POP connection, it should work like any other basic external client (exchange, phones, etc).. it would just have to be set to PULL the mail at whatever interval.
I'll try to mess with POP then. Boo, yea verily, and hiss.
Initially I wanted to use IMAP as I didn't want to pull the emails to my own hosted server. But I may not have a choice. So far everything I've seen says IMAP is only available for yahoo mail to mobile devices (logical) and that Outlook and Thunderbird have built in fudges.
It's not critical. I barely use the Rogers address, at least not as far as publishers and readers are concerned, because if I ever changed providers life could get confusing. So it doesn't see a lot of mail traffic these days.
My thanks indeed for the input and viewpoint, sir .
