Remote Monitoring

I have an off-grid system at my camp. The system has the ability to send me email updates through a comunications box. I need to set this up with my hughsnet ht2000w system and need to know what email server port to use? Also need to know if the email server uses SSL or TSL password encryption?

Depending on how the email system is setup, this may not be possible...  If the box is running a mail server it self, then you won't be able to send anything out as email servers almost explicitly require port 25 to operate and Hughesnet has blocked port 25, as have most other internet providers.

What options are present on the page that you setup the email service?

The device allows me to select the email server port. It also allows email authentication.

Well, what email service was you planning on using?  The port you enter into your product will be dependent upon your mail provider...

If you are trying to set this up to use your Hughesnet email address, then the information is as follows.
