Can I vent a portable air conditioner out a dryer vent?

Most portable air conditioners have 5 exhaust tubes. Some units have smaller diameter ventilation tubes, and these units can be evacuated from a dryer ventilation. However, the external part of the dryer ventilation that has flaps should not be used, since the compressor is not strong enough to push these open flaps.
