Emailing to / from Thailand


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,


I'm new to Thailand, having been once ( 3 weeks at Secrets, 6 weeks ago ), but I'm coming back mid May for a month to travel the country. I'm also a comparative idiot when it comes to all matters technical. I'm an engineer to trade, so used to fixing things that I can see and feel, all this electronic stuff is "White Mans Magic" as far as I'm concerned.


Anyway, whilst I was in Pattaya, and later when I was in Bangkok before flying home, I was able to recieve Emails as usual on my Laptop; however, when I repied to them, in the usual way, I would get a message a couple of hours later saying :-


This is the AVG E-mail Scanner program.


I'm sorry to have to inform you that the message returned

below could not be delivered to one or more destinations.

The e-mail server has responded with the following error:




Cannot open SMTP connection to ''

Connect: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. (10060)


Can you please tell me what I need to do to rectify this ?


I'm quite happy to buy the ( first ) provider of a ( sucsessful ) solution a drink ( at Secrets on the 15th May )


Thank-you in anticipation.....................

The SMTP server you are using is in the UK ( securesend.lawyersonline.co.uk ) check with them on 0845 388 67 94 and I suspect they are not allowing connections from outside the UK.


You may find if they support TTL or SSL encryption enabling those options would resolve the problem.

Thanks for the offer, but don't worry just enjoy your holiday & don't try to work to much.


O.K. I'll get intouch with the ISP ( Lawyers on Line ) and see if they can talk me through it.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
