***PLEASE NOTE: Some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) commonly place a block for outbound email traffic to servers outside of their control. They do this by blocking the default port access for outbound mail servers, which is port 25. In some cases, you maybe need to make a modification to your email client to get around this block. We have opened an alternate port, 8889, to accommodate this, which ISPs have been deploying to protect outbound spam from their networks. To change your Outgoing server (SMTP) port, click on the Advanced tab, as shown below, and enter in 8889.***
