How can I add SMTP Port 587 to Protected Ports in Norton 360 V.6,which doesn't permit me to add?

Norton 360 V.6 doesn't permit me to add SMTP Port 587 to Protected Ports. My ISP switched to this port in Outlook Express, which I am using. There is no way to go back to SMTP port 25. How can I add subject port to Protected Ports?

Hello ErhanKarabekir:

 

Welcome to the Norton Community Forum!

 

SMTP Port 587 uses TLS (or SSL) authentication and is already protected by Norton.

 

If your email is working on both outbound and inbound, there would be no need to change anything, IMO.

Are you having a problem sending and/or receiving email?

 

Now, if you are concerned about email security, please don't be. :smileyhappy:

Norton 360 will protect you from any problems in realtime via the Auto-Protect mechanism when receiving questionable attachments, or even sending potential threats.

 

Does this help answer your question?

 

Regards,

Hi ErhanKarabekir,

 

Port 587 is an SSL-encrypted port that cannot be monitored.  That is why you are unable to add it to the Protected Ports list.  Norton only supports non-encrypted POP3 and SMTP ports.
