Server and System Status

Relay server move and change of IP address

8 December 2010 13:28:29 +0000

The relay server will move from the United States to the United Kingdom on 11 December at 19:00 UTC. This will move it closer to most of the clients who use it, making it faster to access.

There are three important points to note:

  • Due to new anti-spam and -virus measures on the new relay server, email must be submitted to port 587. Submissions to port 25 (the default SMTP port) will be blocked. Please see Configure your Email Account to Use the Relay Server for instructions on reconfiguring your email account on and after Saturday.
  • The address of the relay server ( will remain the same.
  • Some people using firewalls may need to allow the new IP address, which is We suggest that you allow both the old and new IP addresses effective immediately until about 21 December to ensure a smooth transition back to the old IP address in the event of any problems with the new server.

If you have any questions, please contact NinerNet support. Thank-you.
