Mac OS X 10.5.5 Seed Thread (9F17(a) - 8/19/08)

Riddle me this: when you create a MobileMe account in Mail after 10.5.4 and the MobileMe update, it sets up the outgoing server as port 25. Previously, when the service was .Mac, this port number was 587. Why does it do this?

Ironically enough, using the default configuration for that only works half the time (the other half of the time, I will get outgoing server errors), whereas when I change the outgoing port number to 587, everything suddenly works. I've ruled out the possibility of it being an ISP issue.

Actually it is a ISP issue. 25 is SMTP which is blocked by most ISP's to prevent SPAM. :)

It is just the proper port to use so it is the default.

But when the ISP doesn't block port, then what? I guess the bigger question here is why did it get switched from 587 (.Mac) to 25?

I think almost every (responsible) ISP is blocking 25 lately... According to documentation, it's always defaulted to 25...however....if you look through the old .Mac support and now MobileMe you will find it suggests that change for people with problems. Perhaps it is something you changed a while ago and didn't remember changing?

Just verified a freshly reloaded MBP that it defaulted to 25.

meh its an update for a reason, so you don't need to reinstall... I don't see the point in why people do this, seems like they have to much time on their hands.

I see a few SMB fixes there, but really, the SMB in leopard really sucks. It's way way worse than Tiger. For instance, a lot of times copying files over to a new empty share just results in the data being removed after the copy has completed.

You can read more about it here: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=7821900

I have never encountered that issue with Leopard from 10.5.1 (when I first purchased my MacBook Pro) right up until now (10.5.4), and I work with SMB shares frequently every day.

And if you see their signature, none of them are running 10.5.4. Why should help those who can't even be bothered doing the basic thing of updating their software?

Go into network utility and check, it'll probably be 130MBPS, not 300MBPS.

That would be because the router is running in 802.11n and 802.11g mode with one or more 802.11n devices and one or more 802.11g devices connected to it. It's normal behaviour to do so it seems. If there are only 802.11n devices connected it will be an 802.11n only network providing the theoretical speed of 300Mbps. However, if one or more 802.11g devices connect to it, the network will become a 802.11n network supporting 802.11g which will drop the theoretical speed of 300 Mbps for the 802.11n clients to 130 Mbps.

There is a solution to fix this: setup 2 seperate networks: one 802.11n only network and one 802.11g only network. You might need more then one device to do this.

In short: this is not a bug, it's a feature (and not the Microsoft kind of feature in this case but a real one) ;)

It also has got nothing to do with Apple, MacOS X, etc.

Riddle me this: when you create a MobileMe account in Mail after 10.5.4 and the MobileMe update, it sets up the outgoing server as port 25. Previously, when the service was .Mac, this port number was 587. Why does it do this?

Ironically enough, using the default configuration for that only works half the time (the other half of the time, I will get outgoing server errors), whereas when I change the outgoing port number to 587, everything suddenly works. I've ruled out the possibility of it being an ISP issue.

The setup wizard in Mail will autodetect the correct mailsettings. I'm guessing it will try to connect to the server or it does a simple port check, checking what port is being used (that probably will be just the common ports used for mail). If port 25 is not available (due to something that some ISP's like to call "antispam/virus measures" (which it's really not, there are far better methods for that) as Cara already said) it will try the submission port (port 587). Mail also tries if it can connect using things like SSL. In my case it managed to detect that the Gmail IMAP and SMTP server both use SSL. Mail did setup my Gmail account using SSL and not the submission port as port 25 can not be used since it's blocked by my ISP.

Blocking port 25 is one of the most stupid things an ISP can do because it really has no effect on spam and virus stuff. It puts the ISP in a position where it's mailservers end up on several blacklists and a lot of unhappy customers because mail they send never got to the recipient. There are better solutions for this which unfortunately aren't used by ISP's on their mailsetup (e.g. sender/recipient verification, greylisting, other forms of scanning/detecting virusses/spam). Not a customerfriendly setup.

hopefully apple will actually fix the wireless issues the macbooks are having. You know, cause having a N card and not being able to use it with N routers is so sweet and all...
