Unable to open port 993 on my Ubuntu server
I needed to setup a mail server so I decided to read this tutorial and configure it.
I have double-checked everything on it and made sure that I’m following the tutorial as shown above, but I’m having a few issues.
When I try to check port 993 it says connection refused.
telnet example.com 993
Replacing example.com with my domain, this was my result.
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: connection refused
Thunderbird was able to find all of my settings but I still wasn’t able to connect to my own mail :(
This is what thunderbird says that it found settings to.
But I cannot connect with the password I put on the email account itself.
