One of the main sources of threats and problems affecting end-users is Electronic Mails (e-Mails). Therefore, Sahara Net have developed and implemented an "e-Mail Security Policy" in-line with the international standards.
One of the main effects of this new policy is closing port 25 incoming and outgoing for all users except authorized Business Customers.
Therefore, users who are facing technical difficulties in sending e-Mail, should consult their external e-Mail provider (hosting provider, ISP, e-Mail) for a work-around or solution. Alternatively, these users should implement one of the following solutions as per the used service. Kindly note that below solutions were taken directly from each provider's website FAQ page, so it is always best to consult the provider's website directly:
