ssl account will not work

I am trying to send using an AT&T account with SSL and I get a timed out message.
This is what I have entered on the command line;

shellsend.exe "me9@att.net" "me8@att.net" "smtp.att.yahoo.com" "465" "1" "me8@att.net" "mypassword" "j" "C:\JJ.txt"

Any idea why it doesn't work?

Thanks,
JJ

Try using port 587 instead of port 465, sometimes this is needed to get around ISP filters.

Jon,

Thanks for the quick reply.

"587" "1" gave error: Server does not support secure connections.

"587" "0" This worked.
"25" "0" This worked also. ??

Port 465 SSL is what the ISP said to use for an email client so I didn't think 25 would work.
"465" "1" or "465" "0" did not work but my email client works with 465. ??

Thanks
JJ

Can you give this new build (1.2.1) a try:

Thanks!

Jon,

1.2.1 did not work using 465 1 or 465 0.
It did work using 25 0.

Is it normal for an ISP to also use port 25 if they are using port 465 SSL? I had always assumed that if 465 was used then 25 would not be available.

Thanks,
JJ

All ISPs are different, some allow port 25, some don't. If you are using any firewall software, make sure you are allowing ShellSend. Other than that, I'm not sure what to tell you. I really have no idea why your mail client would work, and this simple application won't. Use port 25 or 587 if you are able.

Jon,

From past experiences with AT&T / Yahoo I would guess the problem is on their end.
Port 25 and 587 will work, without SSL, so I can use the program.

Thanks for taking the time to respond so quickly.
I would have to rate your response time as one of the very best!

Thanks,
JJ

Thanks for following-up, I'm glad to hear it is working one way or another.
