|Question:||How can I change the incoming mail port on Post.Office?|
|Answer:||Post.Office does not have web based administration of the SMTP port (changing it is rarely needed), but you can update some database information by E-mailing to "configuration" and specifying the appropriate parameters.
From an account with Postmaster privileges, perform the following:
1. If you do not already have one, add a "E-mail Form Security Enhancement Password" to the "Establish System Security" form in the "System Config" section of the web based administration.
2. Make sure your "Configuration Manager" account (a Reserved Account) has a valid email address listed in its Additional E-mail Addresses. eg: "firstname.lastname@example.org"
3. Construct a mail message to "configuration@yourhost"
4. The body should contain:
Postmaster-Password: [your PM password]
Form-Security-Password: [your FS password] (This is on the Security form and cannot be blank)
Form: [Global Field Setup]
SMTP-Accept/Config/Socket:  (or whatever port you want)
5. Send the message.
You should not receive an error message back from the Configuration account.
Next, restart Post.Office, by either rebooting your server or using the Terminal application:
sudo /usr/local/post.office/post.office shutdown
-- wait a minute or so--
Your SMTP server should now be running on the specified port.
