I was using Thunderbird for 2 of my Gmail accounts with imap, there
were no issues till yesterday . Suddenly our college( Our college
provides net to our hostel rooms) decided to block all ports other
than 80 and 443. This has resulted in imap timing out.
Is there anyway of using imap or pop using port 80 or 443. They had
done this before too. On request they had unblocked these ports
earliar but , their frequent blocking is forcing me to post this . If
there is anyway to do this please tell.
