View Full Version : Change/forward IMAP ports?

19th August 2009, 09:13 AM
The proxy at work blocks the standard IMAP ports, so my non-work accounts in Mail.app aren't able to retrieve anything. Is there a way to get around this?

I should also mention I'm already running Authoxy (http://www.hrsoftworks.net/Products.php) to enable net access for iTunes etc, which I thought might solve the Mail.app problem but does not.

Any ideas?

what you need is SSH access to an external host (*nix) so you can port forward whatever you want to said host using some ssh forwarding, or a simple app to do it all like "SSH Tunnel Manager".

gets complex though...

Thanks for that. I think I've found an app to handle it.
