Zain’s Ego & The Correct Port Number

Its the port number! Change the port number!

I called Zain many times even went to their branches and talked to lots of sales agents and their technical support department.. All with no luck of finding a solution to the not being able to receive emails through email clients (Outlook, Mail…etc) problem.

This weekend when we were talking about this problem, Hamad told me something about changing the port, then Khalid told me that he’s been using Ego with no such problem, He also said something about the port number. Finally he gave me the port number he’s been using and.. just like that.. it worked!

My Gmail, Mac and personal domain all worked with outgoing server port #587. 😀

Thanks a lot Khalid!

Well, stupid things happens. Atleast your situation is waaay much better than mine.

I was writing a Chat Server program in Visual Basic 6 and got in a loop that goes so fast that it skips stuff… Been trying to find a solution for that problem for exactly a year!!! and the answer was a simple “DoEvents” at the end of the loop

And another problem in C, I was writing some packet crafter and the code didn’t work at all, kept on messing around and all for around 7 or 8 months with no good result. The answer was to put “#include ” as the first include.

You got it easy… be glad you figured it out soon

8 months? a year? That would’ve been an accomplishment in patience if it happened to me! I can never hold that long! wow you’re my new role model!
