Re: Blocked email

,exe normally indicates a Win executable, but may also be something else on other systems. Look up Easy Doc Converter for an idea about getting a mini-php process running onto your system. What can happen is that malware picked up from unsafe software or wherever, like a short script, can put togeth...

Re: Blocked email

Malwarebytes does have a Mac version, which may be useful. Somehow you have let out the password to your address. Have you used the email account at some public wifi or similar location? To receive POP email requires the password, and also the email address, both being sent unencrypted, and this can...

Re: Outlook 2106 smtp issues

Another suggestion - go to the Outgoing Server tab, and check you have not ticked "requires authentication", or the log in button. SMTP email is extremely simple; you can do it from a DOS Prompt/terminal, and I often do if I don't want to save the message. I am guessing there's one of those annoying...

URLs cannot contain an unencoded space. What happens if you use 58.96.1.2 in the field?

Re: What type of cordless VoIP phone to use on NBN?

That sounds like an error in the router hardware or software rather than a handset problem. The reboot cleared it. The VoIP call is being transmitted and received as digital internet data packets up to your router. The router has a section that "translates" this into a standard voice analogue phone ...

Re: Outlook 2106 smtp issues

Just a thought - are you using an Exetel service? The SMTP server checks your IP address.

Re: Parental control on Exetel modem

You might have to look hard for a new device that has all the same features and VoIP. Bridging on the other hand isn't difficult. It involves leaving the modem function of the new one intact (that is, the line analogue to digital internet conversion) and turning off all other functions. When you do ...

Re: Parental control on Exetel modem

I don't know if this is provided for either, but it is a router function, so if it becomes necessary you could consider bridging the new modem to the previous router.

Re: Wi-Fi Modem Problem

Exetel helpdesk would have supplied your user name and password to log into Exetel's servers. They are filled into boxes in the config page. The router password is probably the default, "admin". The router wireless security procedure is explained at http://www.tp-link.com.au/faq-877.html Yet another...

Re: Using VPN with abcxyz@exemail.com.au emails

It's not about sending emails. It's about your VPN. Thunderbird connects directly to either the POP server for receipt or to the SMTP server for sending. With no VPN that's ok, because the SMTP server sees your Exetel IP address (not email address) and connects in plain text. The whole point of the ...

Re: Using VPN with abcxyz@exemail.com.au emails

Exetel's outgoing SMTP server needs no authentication, but it enforces an Exetel-only IP address for the sender. Your VPN is coming to the server from an outside address.

You can receive because the connection to the POP server is authenticated by password.

Webmail has a log in function.

Re: Cannot Connect To POP3 Server

There is a simple test to check if you have a problem with the server, or whether the problem is with your mail client. Open a terminal/DOS prompt. Some Windows users may have to enable telnet. You'll know by the reply to telnet. Type: telnet pop3.nsw.exemail.com.au 110 The reply you should receive ...

Perhaps it's this - after putting in the second SIM, drag down the status bar at the top of the home screen and select "Welcome to your dual SIM".

Presumably it's about pfSense and not wrestling. The forum exists for posting how-tos. In earlier times this sort of thing was the main activity.
