Exabytes - Updates on Outbound SMTP Server (Important!)

Date : 4th December 2007
Time : 9:45 AM (GMT +0800)
Expected ETA : N/A

Dear Valued Customers,

Please be informed that affective 3rd Dec 2007, Telekom Malaysia Berhad had blocked OUTBOUND Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) traffic or port 25 for all out going e-mails from dynamic IP addresses. Only Outbound SMTP traffic from smtp.streamyx.com and smtp.tm.net.my will be allowed. With this implementation, Streamyx customers who have their own mail server (Example: mail.YourDomain.com) will not be able to send out e-mails using email program.


Note: Clients who are using Exabytes Webmail or using other Internet Service Provider that allows custom SMTP server will not be affected.

===========================
How to overcome this problem?
===========================

Solution #1 (Recommended)

To overcome this problem, Exabytes had created a new port for SMTP server, Exabytes clients who were affected, may change the SMTP Server from Port 25 to Port 26.

Solution #2 (Provided by TM)
===========================
You may change your SMTP server to the open-relay server provided by TM. Please be assured that by using this option, your email address is still remaining as YOU@YourDomain.com.

Kindly refer to http://webmail.tm.net.my/info/proxy.html on how to configure your email client in order to utilize this relay server. Alternatively, your e-mail administrators can refer to http://webmail.tm.net.my/info/smtp-proxy.html as a guide to configure your company√ʬ¨"s email servers.
