How do I find out my SMTP port number for my IMAP email address?
How do I find out my SMTP port number for my IMAP email address? I can send and receive email just find on my blackberry, but I can only receive on outlook. How do I find out what SMTP port number my pearl is using to see if it works for my outlook?

POP3 - port 110
IMAP - port 143
SMTP - port 25
HTTP - port 80
Secure SMTP (SSMTP) - port 465
Secure IMAP (IMAP4-SSL) - port 585
IMAP4 over SSL (IMAPS) - port 993
Secure POP3 (SSL-POP) - port 995
the default incoming (pop3 - 110) works on my desktop, but the outgoing default (smtp - 25) does not.
on my pearl, it has it as default incoming (IMAP - 143) but i do not know the outgoing SMTP.
incoming and recieving works on my cell but not on my comp. Should i try switching my comp to IMAP?

Your email program should give you a reason why it cant connect to those ports.. it could be that you are using those ports but dont have SSL checked.. it should give you an error code.. just lookup the code.

the SMTP server you are trying to use probably has relaying turned off if you are not on the same subnet (most likely situation). Or, if your mail admins are truly evil (like mine) they block port 25 to any server but theirs.
Try using port 587. It's an alternate port for regular SMTP. Not many admins block that one because everything that causes trouble is usually trying to use 25.
