This is probably caused by their home ISP blocking port 25 to reduce spam. I got around it by using port 587 for Outlook's outgoing SMTP port, which ISPs will usually pass. LANSuite, however, won't use port 587, so I redirected it at the server's firewall back to port 25.

It's a decent workaround if you know about firewalls, but it would be much better if LANSuite's developers would add port 587 support directly. (Hint, hint)

What kind of firewall are you using, Vincent?

The other thing you can do is use SSL SMTP. In Lansuite this defaults to port 2525, but you could change it to port 587.

To use this you will need a SSL certificate. Lanusite has the built in capabiilty to generate one for you.

It you decide to use the secure SMTP, your users will have to change their outlook SMPT connection to require a secure conneciton.
