Hello! Please excuse this questions if they seem basic - I’m a brand-new DreamHost customer.
I’m trying to tunnel SMTP (port 25) and POP (port 110) using SSH (PuTTY) .
- I know I SSH to my shell account, but I also know that the mail servers are separate. Therefore, what are the settings in PuTTY for the SSH tunnel?
- What do I put as the POP and SMTP servers in my mail client (Outlook)? “localhost” or my mail server?
- Any other special port settings?
- Can I have more than one PuTTY session active at once in order to tunnel for more than one mailbox at one time? If so, do I specify different server names or are they all “localhost”?
I would very much appreciate some step-by-step instructions from someone who does this and might have a little patience to write it up.
I’ve been blown away by the wealth of information in the wiki and the forums, and it’s been very helpful in getting started. However, I’ve tried and tried and I can’t find the answer to this question as it relates to my particular situation.
