    Hi Guys,

    Thanks

    For checking your email, you would use the POP (TCP port 110) protocol or IMAP (TCP port 143).

    connecting through your LAN, or from an area outside the LAN? your ISP may have that port blocked, there could be many issues keeping this from happening, find some error logs, etc, see if we can get some info from thisse.
