Open Ports

SMTP uses Port 25
POP3 uses port 110

Both of these ports must be open on the firewall.

Network Admin doesn't know how?

by admin In reply to pop3

Um, this is scary IMO. There may be a good reason it was done that way and you should continue to go through her\him to get it fixed with the company solution (maybe you shouldn't have direct pop3\smtp access for a good reason). An admin that can't get e-mail through a firewall? This seems pretty suspicious to me.
