    Why can't I send email messages?

      Article summary

      If you are using an email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, or Apple Mail, you may come across an issue where your email messages:

      • Cannot be sent but can be received
      • Cannot be received but can be sent
      • Cannot be sent nor received

      (There are no issues when you access your email from a web browser.)

      To solve the problem, try the following:

      • Change the outgoing and incoming mail ports your email client uses. Our service blocks traffic over the insecure port 25, so use other commonly used e-mail ports such as 587 or 465
      • Disable the ThreatBlock feature in the application settings
      • Switch to a different NordLayer server. Your email provider may be blocking access to its email services from IP addresses of a known VPN server. Switching to a different NordLayer server may help

      Note: In case you have any questions or are experiencing any issues, please feel free to contact our 24/7 customer support team.
