Server 2003 R2, smtp port 110

By louis ·
Hi there folks,

Im looking for a guide to change my smtp port
on my server. The port in view currently is port 110, i would like to change this to something else. Would this also help stop other spammers connecting to my SMTP service? We have our server connected to a public IP and linked via a domain name. And im getting tons of traffic on my server. They cant do much on there, just take up space, i have set the relay rights and so on. Just would like to change the port number. Sorry im a programmer, this is not in my direct line of everyday work, and i hate taking chances.

You could change the SMTP port.

A better idea would be to use a mail secruity appliance that stops all of that traffic into the network.

Oh and just for the record, SMTP should be running on port 25 on an Exchange server, by default. Port 110 would be POP3. A good article on what port is what in Exchange can be found at

And here is how to cnfigure the SMTP connector in Exchange
