Hi, first I have read through a bunch of posts looking for answers on here but nothing really relates to my issues I am having as such.
I will first explain my setup then explain what I have tried.
My router (192.168.1.1) which is forwarding all traffic to my computer (192.168.1.2). Ports opened for the mail server are 25, 143, 587, 465 and all point to 192.168.1.2 which is my only computer, nothing else connected to my router.
Windows Firewall disabled, no other firewall or antivirus (fresh OS install) and I am using windows 11 Pro.
My ISP is talktalkbusiness and to connect to their smtp servers I use port 25 strait connection plain text and not secure. I use my username and password they provided for me.
The smart host name I use is smtp.talktalkbusiness.net
it was all working fine for years and I changed nothing but a few weeks ago connections began to be refused or timed out when connecting to my ISP's server. The message I was getting was Error FF queue job.
The log files really told me nothing apart from conenction timed out. I have been in contact my with ISP and they say over n over n over again it is my end not theirs.
I can not really find a realistic step by step guide on how to properly configure Mercury Mail but I did have it working fine before despite changing nothing.
Under Protocol Modules I have the options ticked as follows...
My PHP.INI file has
It doesnt send or receive anything at all, it ignores emails created through my site and ignores emails created from the GUI send mail feature.
There are too many windows with settings to list here in one go but I am happy to do my best to provide details if needed. I'd appreciate any help to get this working. thanks
