Sending emails fom Pattaya - Hotels list

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I depend on my email and I like to send emails from my laptop.

 

When I was at LK Rennaisance they had a nasty ISP (CAT) who blocked my emails.

 

Googling suggested to put ISP's SMTP server:

http://www.phuket-data-wizards.com/en/adsl.php

 

,and same was advice from hotel staff, but it doesn't work since they require authentication.

 

Maybe someone can tell me what can be done? Maybe CAT have some other alternative port which they don't block (25 is blocked)

 

Might be good to make a list of hotels which you can / cannot send your emails from.

 

I'll start:

 

1) LK Renaissance. Cant send emails. The only nasty solution is to go to my hosting provider's web based interface.

 

Who's next, who's got better experience?

Nanren bu huai, nuren bu ai.

Do you have an email address with your home ISP as opposed to a generic hotmail / gmail account ? I had the same problem on my last trip with O2 blocking my emails as the requests were coming from a foreign server - it's heavy-handed spam protection. Unfortunately, if this is the case, there is probably little you can do. My ISP sent some advice on ports etc., but it didn't resolve anything and required a fair amount of work to resolve when I returned to the UK. I was advised by my ISP (and many others) to grab hotmail / gmail accounts as they were less problematic when travelling.

It's unlikely that it was LK Renaissance or CAT telecom. It's more likely that it was your own ISP not allowing you to send emails from outside their network.

I've had no problems with both Hotmail and my home ISP's WebMail server from:

 

Pattaya Bay Resort

 

Areca Lodge

 

Metro Apartments

 

Queen Victoria Inn

 

I'm not sure what ISP these places are using, and they are a slight bit slow or intermittent at times. But, generally, no problem.

I have two POP emails, one from my ISP www.tpg.com.au and one is from my own domain hosted by www.crazydomains.com.au

 

Now the tpg.com.au can be a bit capricious, that's fine but my own hosting works and worked from anywhere in the world, until I got to LK Rennaisance.

Sometimes it asks to put the local ISP's outgoing SMTP server, but here it didn't help.

Definitely CAT Telecom, or their configuration at LK Ren. My hosting allows me to send emails via any outgoing mail server of any ISP, checked many times in many countries, including in BKK.

Sure, but I don't want to use Webmail, I want to use my Windows Live Mail (Outlook Express), the POP mail.

Hi guys,

 

I'd also add to this list the pig and whistle and flipper hotel on so1 7 plus the stags head around by LK Metro for easy wifi reception.

 

Hope this helps you.

Updating:

 

From LK Rennaisance you CAN send emails via your own server. BUT - you should be connected via Wi-Fi and not Ethernet cable. Maybe slower, but better!

Wi-Fi - you don't need to change any of your settings, email will just work fine on outgoing messages.

 

This hotel has moved up from 7.5 to 9~9.5 on my personal scale.

Many ISPs now block port 25. But that isnt the problem at all. It's up to your ISP to provide an alternative port for their own authorised SMTP server so that you can use it from anywhere without difficulty or reconfiguration. They should use secure servers also.

 

If they dont offer an alternative port then they are basically a crap outfit and you should ditch them, or switch to an email address that doesnt have anything to do with your ISP.

 

Webmail of course works from anywhere, but who in his right mind would want to use webmail?

 

Gmail offer a free full IMAP service with a secure SMTP server on a port other than 25 and this works everywhere as well, though admittedly their IMAP implementation is non-standard and doesnt work quite the way it should on most email clients.

    • 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
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
