Outside Access To LanSuite
  Posted by  Efren Ouano  on Thursday, April 01, 2004 at 4:21:38 PM (EST)
Our LanSuite Email server is behind a firewall.

How can I setup email access from outside the local network?

You will need to configure your firewall to allow TCP packets on port 25 and 110. Check your firewall documentation for information on how to do this, as it's usually different for each firewall out there (and there's a few dozen hardware, and lord knows how many software firewalls on the market)

What issues in security should I be concerned about with the ports open?

How can I prevent intrusion from bad elements getting into our lan using these 2 ports?

Obviously, any time you open any port through a firewall, you're going to run the risk of intrusion, but the biggest problem you will face is spammers trying to relay off of your mail server. If you set your relay options how it suggests in the manual and in the Knowledge Base as well as be vigilant and monotor your log files, you shouldn't have any problems. It is highly unlikely someone will be able to "root" your server through the SMTP and POP3 ports.
