    Smoothwall IMAP

    We're trying to allow students to be able to use outlook to access their LEA provided webmail. We have managed to get it working by using a direct connection to the LEA provided broadband but when we try going through smoothwall we receive "The connection to the server has failed." How can we make smoothwall allow the imap connection?

    (Presuming firewall) - use the "outgoing" section in networking to allow IMAP ports (should already be a port group set up).

    Sorry for the terse response - we are a little pushed for time in Leeds this week - if you need a more complete response, support may be able to give a few more pointers, meanwhile, normal service here *should* resume in a week or so.
