IMAP DynDNS - mailserver address from outside

Post by dan_bub » 02 Oct 2009, 04:27

Hi,
I guess, this is an easy one, however, I can't figure it out. :?
In Thunderbird and from LAN, I just enter 10.0.0.5 as my IMAP mailserver address and it works without problems, but when I try to connect from outside using my DynDNS.com-address

myName.DynDNS.com

I cannot connect. Therefor my question:

What should I fill in as the IMAP mailserver name to configure Thunderbird as my mail client?
Thanks a lot

Could actually be a number of things. Firstly, have you forwarded imap traffice (port 143) to your Bubba in your router?

Thanks for the tip. I have no access to my router from where I am right now, but I am checking port forwarding to port 143 tomorrow or sunday.

Forwarding port 143 to Bubba did the trick. A lot faster now using Thunderbird instead of Bubba´s web mail client Horde. Thanks for your help, Danieil.
All the best
