You can use an app like Tweetymail, TweetByMail or
Tweetc to link an email address that PageGate can deliver
traffic to. Every time an email gets delivered, it will
post to your Twitter account.
To configure PageGate to send an email, SMTP configurations
vary from network to network. Some networks allow direct
SMTP over port 25, others require that you relay your
messages through a mail server.
To determine which variety of SMTP is available to
you, there is a connection test you'll need to run that
requires the Telnet Client to be enabled in Windows.
If you use Windows XP or Server 2003, the Telnet Client
is enabled by default. If you use Windows Vista, 7,
8/8.1, Server 2008 or Server 2012, you will need to
enable the Telnet Client.
For information on how to enable the Telnet Client
in Windows Vista, 7 or Windows 8/8.1, go here: http://www.notepage.net/manuals/notepagerpro/telnet_client_workstation.htm
For information how to enable the Telnet Client in
Server 2008 or Server 2012, go here: http://www.notepage.net/manuals/notepagerpro/enabling_the_telnet_client_in_.htm
After the telnet client has been enabled, this is the
port test you'll want to run:
1) In Windows, run a Command Prompt.
2) In the Command Prompt, type the following
and hit enter:
telnet smtp-bb.vtext.com 25
If port 25 is open and there are no outstanding issues
with the public IP address the system sits behind, you'll
receive a 220 response.
If you receive a 220 response, use the Adding a direct
SMTP Carrier steps.
If port 25 is open but there is an outstanding issue
with the public IP the system sits behind, you'll receive
a 554 or a 421 rejection notice.
This indicates that your public IP is on a blacklist,
so you will need to determine which blacklists you're
on. To do that, from the computer running the software,
go to www.whatismyipaddress.com and get your public
IP. Then click on the Blacklist Check option at the
top of the page and run the test. Any list that has
a red ! next to it is a list the IP address is on, so
you'll want to go to each of those links and go through
their provided lookup and removal steps. Once your IP
is off of those blacklists, you can use direct SMTP
from that system.
If port 25 isn't open at all, you'll receive a response
that says "Unable to establish a connection to the host
on port 25".
If port 25 isn't open, you may be able to have it opened
but you will need to speak with your network administrator
or internet service provider's tech support.
If port 25 is closed and cannot be opened, you must
relay your traffic through an SMTP server and you will
need to contact your local IT staff or internet service
provider's tech support and ask them the following questions:
1) What SMTP Server can you use?
2) What port should you connect to that server
3) Does that server require authentication?
3a) If the server does require authentication,
what styles of authentication are supported and what
username and password should you use to authenticate
Once you have the answers to those questions, use
