Forwarding Outlook emails to another email account

Q: Forwarding Outlook emails to another email account

Hello all, I was wondering if possible is their a way to have emails that are sent to a Outlook account be forwarded to a yahoo or gmail account. I've tried using the out of office assistant but doesn't seem to work. Is there another way in the server settings or Outlook settings? Or is it just not possible.

Our company is using exchange server 2003 w/Outlook 2007

Hey all,

This is my first time trying to port forward anything and I'm having trouble finding a guide for my router the bell homehub 2000 (sagemcom fast 5250). If anyone has experience with this router, some help would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to port forward for my xbox one.

A:Port forwarding

UPDATE: ok so I went ahead and did some more reading using a guide for a linksys router and attempting to translate it to mine. From my understanding I have to set a static ip address on my xbox one and then open the specific ports through my router settings, can anybody confirm this?
Relevancy 32.25%

Not sure if you cover this, but I have a Motorola Surfboard SBG6580, but am not sure how to open up the ports. I have searched all over the web for advice on this, but no one seems to have a screenshot that looks like mine. My problem is, that my brother and I play the game together, so when I go in to open the ports do I start with hims IP address, since the ending number is lower than mine, and then how far out should I go.I'm including a screenshot, so you will see what I mean. Also, it asks for an external ip address. I have mine, haven't gotten his, but if they're different, how do I adjust for his. Or do I have to open the same ports for both machines? My Cisco router was not this complicated, but the surfboard is our router and modem and takes up less space.If anyone understands what I'm trying to do, please answer back. When we're online on the game together, we lag terribly. We can play separate games online without a hitch.

The typical problem is the PUBLIC ip-addresses for you/bro can change overnite.

what you see with IPCONFIG is your local lan address, not the PUBLIC address given to your router by the ISP

I'm looking to upgrade for 2 main reasons.

1.) Upgrade my Ram, (as the limit of ram for this motherboard is 4gb.)
2.) More than 1 PCI-E slot. (There's only one on this motherboard.)

But my main question is:
What do I need to take into account when upgrading my Motherboard?
(Compatibility issues etc.)

Also any motherboard recommendations (under 200). As I'm planning on upgrading my computer to a gaming rig.

Any replies would be greatly appreciated.

Not quite understanding you. Are you wanting to keep all other parts and just upgrade mobo, ram and gpu?:

Hey guys I need some help on how to Port Forward a Router and a Modem

Im using a TP Link WR340GD Router

This is the IP on my computer

and this is for the Modem which I havent filled up yet

my isp is a bit of an *** not making me port I hacked their modem (3rd Pic)
now im kinda lost and dont know what to forward on the modem

my router doesnt have any NAT settings but the tunngle seems to have the problem with it so I opened the modem and theres teh NAT settings now please I need help on how to port forward my modem

A:Port forwarding a modem and a router

First, let's understand the setup

isp===modem----router----(1/more pc's)
Port forwarding is done in the ROUTER where the NAT support allows multiple PCs to have Internet access.
Typically, our modems only have ONE Ethernet output which is why we need the router in the first place.
Now if you have a Modem with multiple RJ45 slots, then it has NAT also, and your port forwarding gets complicated.

In addition, the machine at needs a tweak to ALLOW IN TCP/UDP PORT 59014 FROM ANY.

The User's Guide for that router is here
So, please specify the make/model of the modem.

Does the laptop come w/ a program to customize keyboard settings? Maybe that a look at that.

You have to forward the require ports to your pc (router settings). Then open your firewall, also make sure you turn off built-in firewall.

Can you help me guide on "Port Forwarding"? I tried to access my router and added ports to forward as I've seen other guides here on the net, but when I check it with "PFportchecker" Software, it said my port is not open or unreachable.

My router is D-Link DI-604.

Please Help!=(

A:D-Link DI-604 port forwarding

there's a difference between an Open Port and having access to a service On That Port.

the machine which has the desired program (or better said, service) must have a fixed IP address, not one assigned by DHCP
the router then forwards port xxx to that fixed address
the firewall on the target system must allow incoming traffic on that port(s)
AND the program/service must be running.
then and only then will a probe like PFportchecker find it 'open'

I'm trying to port forward but I'm failing at it. So I have a Netgear WGR614 Router, and a Westell 610015 Modem. I gave myself a static IP, then tried port forwarding, didn't work. So I tried setting it to bridge mode, but it won't let me back on the internet. BUT, I can't use bridge mode because I have 3 other computers in the house that use wireless. So is there any other way to port forward? Thanks in advance.

A:Netgear port forwarding

You don't need bridge mode, but guess you've alread regressed back to infrastructure mode.

For the setup

modem===router - - - wired or wireless connections
a) disable any WiFi on the modem itself
b) this forces connections to the router
c) place your port forward in the router ->to->the static IP address of the system dessired.

What 'service' are you port forwarding? Sometimes there are more than just one port required

Right ok, I have a probably simple request, but its baffling me. I need to have my iPod and PC download emails. But I need it so that, if i delete an email of my iPod, it isn't there on my PC, and vice versa. But I need it too so that if I download the emails to my iPod, I can still access them on my PC.

I'm using a firefox extension called SimpleMail, that has options for POP3 and IMAP, and is useful and quick compared to thunderbird for me.

I've tried it, but just can't figure it out! A detailed step-by-step guide, would be HUGELY appreciated. Probably put this in the wrong section too, but its the best I could think off.

A:Email setup help needed, for iPod and PC!

Basicaly any email account with IMAP would be able to do that: Gmail, MobileMe & even Yahoo! offer such services.

Emails are available on all the machines using the IMAP account & even your replies are copied over to all the machines so you can still access them from another machine than the one where you wrote them from.

I think that I recovered some of my emails and documents after accidently reformatting my computer. However I can't seem to open the documents.

outlook saves everything in a *.pst file which is located

Port forwarding requires that you specify the IP of the computer running the service. And the ports to forward.

So what ports did you forward and to what IP?

You need a static LAN IP on the computer you are forwarding to.

A:NAS and email knowledge lacking.

NAS devices (Network Attached Storage) just attach to your LAN using the File Sharing,
Map Network Drives capability.

1) Internet access to one of YOUR LAN drives is a big security hole, so that's not the
right approach.

2) depending upon the software you use to send/receive, sharing email files can easily corrupt them and you lose everything.

If I wanted Internet access to my email, I would use a Webbased email solution
(like gmail), configure it to retain all down loaded email, and the use my pc
to access the gmail pop3 account.

Hey I was just wondering how to "forward a port" for utorrent. I've been to and presumably they have the instructions I need but I don't know anything about my router or network or anything, as I'm in a dorm room. Anything I can do to get utorrent working properly?


A:Port forwarding for utorrent

Your first problem is you need to control the router -- if it's a common router for the
entire dorm, you're out of luck.

Secondly, any given port can only be fowarded to ONE system, so if someone else
has already done this, you're now out of luck AND up a creek without a paddle.

Lots of valuable information in that file I'd like to access. I was able to create a new Outlook file in safe mode so I guess the program is OK.

It was suggested to me recently the cause may have been due to me having Microsoft Service Pack 1 at the time. I had not updated to Service Pak 2 (which I now believe has been updated to Service Pak 3). Has anyone had experience with this and, if so, do you think there's a chance that if I update my Service Pak that I might still have a chance of recovering the data I had in my original Outlook file?

A:Still unable to open Microsoft Outlook

I dont think just upgrading to service pack 3 would do any good.

May be you need some more luck there.

utorrent and some games make use of portforwarding and i'd like to know if that would leave my computer vulnerable to attacks...

A:Does port forwarding leave my computer vulnerable to hacking?

yes and no.
yes in that data on that port from ANY source goes directly to your system.
no in that your firewall can still filter which sources are actually allowed.
also no in that if your software is not running, then the inbound traffic arrives at
your system but goes nowhere (ie just gets dropped).

so the real issue will be 'how good is the software you are using on that port?'

I suggest, no one can really tell

My laptop is connected wirelessly to the router on the main pc, the router is a dlink di-624, and my isp is virgin media. I'm sorting the settings in bitcomet on my laptop and it says I need to set up port forwarding on my router. I've read up how to do it, but the problem is online instructions say you need to set up a static ip first and I'm having problems doing that. I rang virgin media for the dns servers and all they told me was that setting up a static ip would stop my internet working and I must have dhcp? enabled, but that doesn't help me. I tried a google search and somebody posted some dns servers but when I used those and set up port forwarding it came up with the message "port range conflict with bitcom1". I don't know what to try now.

Backup you settings to a file.. Reset the Router, then re-flash the firmware. Try putting in the setting first before you restore you original settings. This way you can tell if it will work or not. If not then you have a problem with this router. Did you just get this? If you did take it back. Now if it works then you need restore your setting or manually input the settings back in yourself with the new Port forwarding settings that you wanted in the first place.

It doesn't work because there is no direct connection between the modem and the Windows computer.

You should either connect the Windows machine directly to the "modem" (your modem seems to include a router device) or set up another port forwarding rule on the Linux computer.

To keep a hotmail account active you have to login regularly, about once a fortnight at least.

My speeds are super slow, and I had heard something about port forwarding possibly fixing this, but (to be honest), I hate networking.

If anyone knows a way to set something like that up or has any other suggestions to get this resolved, I would greatly appreciate it.

A:creating a static ip and port forwarding with two routers

Sorry but you are confusing me. I will be be able to help ... but lets break down what you are trying to do.

My first question is why do u have 2x DHCP servers running? Statically assign the 2x desktop PCs with an IP address and then exclude those IP addresses from the DHCP scope. Alternatively you can reserve 2x IP addresses in the scope (MAC addresses required). TURN DHCP SERVER OFF ON ONE OF THE ROUTERS! 2x DHCP servers can cause all kinds of problems within a LAN. One scope is best and to keep it neat, set the address range between 192.168.x.100 - x.150 (if you decide to go with a class C subnet).

Why do you have both WAN ports in use? It sounds like you have created a loop! From one to the other ... makes no sense to me why you did that, in my head the topology looks wrong! You would be better off with a switch rather than 2x routers for reasons like a switch doesn't require an IP address and it is not a DHCP server. But it doesn't matter, we can either NAT between the two routers (which will slow down you internet speed a little) or we can put the VOIP router into bridge mode, give the Linksys all the ISP details and have him as the gateway. Bridge mode is the easier of the two, and won't slow down your internet speed (no NAT rules).

I hope this is making sense. Reply back and fill me in a little more and we'll go from there :grinthumb

I perfectly understand that you absolutely have to keep the exact router models a secret..

With most routers you can put in port ranges in the port forwarding tables.Also, many routers have two forwarding tables - simple port forwarding and port forwarding with triggers. You may use the triggered table for some applications.

i would go with an intel core2 duo processor, asus 680i motherboard, and at least a gig of corsair DDR2 800 ram, in dual channel config. i reccomend two smaller hard drives as apposed to one big one, so you could run them in a fast raid 0 array. raid 0 combines the capacities of the disks involved, so two 160GB drives would give you single 320GB volume. as for the power supply...go with a name brand (that's important for pretty much all computer parts) known for quality, such as antec or PC power & cooling.

if you get a single video card, i would say get the antec neopower 550w, which is quiet, efficient, and supports modular cabling.

as for the USB usage you mentioned, your USB controller (mobo) is going to be the limiting factor in determining how much power can be drawn.

So i got this great idea!

What if I just forward say ports 10000 - whatever port i can go up to, and direct it all to my computer on the network.

Problem is I have no clue what to do! Portforward says i cant forward enough ports and dlink is no help

any help would be loved

A:dlink 624, forwarding most ports

what are you trying to do with port forwarding (PF)? Each port is unique to
a particular service running on a particular system, eg: port 80 is the default
for a web server. There are a few applications that use a range of ports,
like 6500-6510, but I.T. pros really dislike them for security reasons.

the normal use of PF is to forward just the specific few required.
so i'll move the question again, what are you trying to achieve?

A:Port Forwarding Problem..About to take a hammer to the routers :)

I am not sure what kind of routers these are.. DHCP and DMZ are totally different things and one cannot possibly affect the other. You having ended up with two extremely braindead routers seems unlikely too.

Are the subnet masks the same everywhere? Home routers often have fixed netmasks.

Software firewalls on the computers? Turn off the Windows firewall?

How are you testing the port forwarding? Often it is not possible (crappy routers) to make loopback connections to one's own WAN IP address. Use some system outside your network to test the port forwarding/DMZ.

Could it be that your ISP (or whatever entity is on the WAN side of routers) is blocking incoming connections?

Hi, I was just wnodering if someone could tell me how the router distinguishes beteen HTTP Request packets and Response packets, basically when I set up my router to port forward incoming traffic on port 80 directly to my comp on our internal home LAN, and what if I wanted to host a web site (XP Pro IIS5.1) on my other comp how would I set up the router???


A:Bey Re: Portt forwarding from my router Home LAN

It doesn't.. Routers don't know anything about data transfer protocols. Your router simply keeps track of TCP connections and doesn't give a damn whether the protocol inside the connection is HTTP or FTP or whatever.

In order to host a web server, all you have to do is to forward the web port.

Following 2 re-installs of SBS2003 on my Dell 400SC server none of the workstations on our network are able to send emails via Exchange server.
The error message that keeps coming up is:-
"553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)"
I'm pretty sure this is just a setup issue but having searched several other forums there seems to be several opinions as to the cause of this error.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
All the workstations are running XP Pro (SP2) and using Outlook 2003 for email. :blackeye:

A:Email not being sent

Normally this would be an incorrect DNS configuration on a Windows Server. Check your event viewer. If there are DNS errors, you may want to resolve those first. If you DNS is clean, you still may want to use the IP address of your Mail Server instead of the domain name. Additionally, something I've run into in the past is some ISP's only allow sending of mail within so many seconds of POP3 authentication. I believe QWest does this. This is their way of preventing relaying but it screwed me up seeing how they provide our connectivity but my POP3 email is with another company that houses our domain so I never downloaded POP3 from Qwest. It could be that username and password authentication are required to get around this. I'm not sure where that setting is but I'll try to remember to look on my server at work tomorrow. If I find anything good, I'll let you know.

I have just lost every thing on O/Exp, all folders, emails the lot, it now looks like the first time I ran with O/Exp all the basic folders are there but empty, I have tried restore but it's just the same. Have done a search and what comes up is the same empty O/Exp. I have a feeling that the start up may be inhibited as I had a start up progame and monitor which I have just deleted. HELP, if the wife finds out I will be made to do the ironing for a month aaah.

hi helpful people, i recently (yesterday) installed Verizon DSL and have no problems with it except that when i access my Yahoo mail it takes frustratingly forever to download anything. When i used my old ISP again, as i haven't cancelled it yet, Yahoo worked fine. So i contacted Verizon who told me it was either a Yahoo problem or a computer problem??? When i informed them that it only started when i installed their software, and went away when i used my other ISP, they inferred i was some kind of ignorant *****. They were absolutely no help. So what gives? Am i some kind of ignorant *****, or could it indeed be Verizon stuffing it up? Everything else downloads fine. Could it be that i have mainly Australian Yahoo email addresses, thereby creating some sort of spam problem? I appreciate your help.

A:Yahoo email problems with verizon dsl

it could be many things, but let's start with some basics.
You mentioned Verizon DSL, implying a telephone connection rather than
a cable. Secondly, how do you access your original ISP; dial-up?

Started after loading their software -- what does that package do?
Is it like AOL which presents the whole interface of a browser (totally unnecessary).

With the DSL modem in place, I would bet you could just start any browser and
it would access the Internet just fine - - including your Yahoo Email. Once your
computer has IP, Gateway and DNS addresses, your good to go and all programs
which have tcp/ip ability will run without knowing how or who(the isp) got
installed or configured.

you can verify your tcp thus;
run->enter the word
hit enter
then type
ipconfig /all

results look like

Using WideBand achieving about 1.5 Mbps with a speed test. When sending email with file attachment of 3.2MB, the time to send or receive the email w/file attachment takes minutes not seconds. A friend with the same BroadBand service using the same email message w/same attachment can do it in 73 seconds. Is there something I'm missing in settings on my system? Or is this an issue with the mail server(s) and MIME?


A:EMail File Attachment(MIME) transfer speed too slow on WideBand

Well it all depends on what you upload speed is, not your download speed. You likely have 256kpbs or maybe a little higher. That really limits your capability of sending a large attachment quickly.

Hey guys,

I'm trying to do something really simple and extremely baffled as to why it does not work. I'm trying to setup a forwarding rule through my router to forward any traffic coming in on port 143 to forward it to port 3389 of on of the computers on my LAN (for remote desktop use). I know it's not a remote desktop problem because I can remote desktop when directly connected to my highspeed modem as well as remote desktop fine using my computer's internal IP (192.168.x.x) but it simply doesn't seem to forward properly through the router. The crazy thing is, this used to work and I haven't changed anything. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

system is on a comcast cable setup modem to linksys router to 3layer switch

is it possible for clients to log on to port 21
on my router change it to another port to fool the ISP

listen port 21 to port 5353 like that
so inside of using they just need

A:need help with FTP server setup with UPnP forwarding

You could do anything you like with your router but the fact is that none of the packets headed for port 21 will never reach your cable modem or the router - they are blocked by Comcast gear long before that.

You could set up some sort of a proxy outside the blocks of your ISP of course.. Or maybe just call Comcast and ask for the port to be opened?

Hello--I have been having trouble with running my protools 002 on my windows xp. A friend of mine metioned setting up 2 separate user accounts one for Protools---the other for everything else. The plan is to strip down---"tune" (uninstall any unnessesary programs from the protools account, in hopes to help it run smoother--The problem is...When I uninstall programs in the control panel,
it uninstalls it from both user accounts. Is there a way to run each user account separately? Please help!!

A:VPN / Port forwarding

For VPN you need special software that works with networking devices at your work.

If you want to telnet to this Unix server from home you forward telnet port to the IP in your work firewall(s).

It makes sense to use the DDNS tab in your router. This way the IP gets updated every time it needs to even if coumputer(s) are offline.
