  • Smtp Connector Config!!

    Hi,

    My Config:

    - SBS 2003 SP1
    - ADSL dynamic IP
    - External Hosting for webpage and mail (POP3)

    I canot send external email directly because dynamic IP (not trusted?)

    I followed Simon's guide here:

    http://www.amset.info/exchange/smtp-connector.asp

    After surfing the forums and this topic:

    http://forums.petri.com/showthread.p...smtp+connector

    If I use Outlook and config a POP3 account I use mail.myhosteddomain.com for both incoming and outgoing email (provided by hosting) so I configured SMTP connector the same way. Hosting Company provided me an account that lets me send mail under [email protected] so I configured SMTP Connector under Advanced Tab/Outbound Security button just like the tutorial explains.

    However I cannot send email this way, each time I send email via Exchange I get a reply:

    [email protected] el 21/06/2007 06:51 p.m.
    There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server. Please contact your system administrator.
    <mydomain.com #5.5.0 smtp;550 Sender verify failed>

    the same with gmail.com yahoo.com, etc. That response makes me think, SMTP Connector is not working and email is sent directly by exchange, and sience MX, DNS records are not pointing my Server that error ocurrs.

    Any help apreciated!!

    PS Also tried IP [123.123.123.123] instead mail.myhosteddomain.com in SMTP Connector with same result, however doing it in plain Outlook POP3 Account works perfectly!

    If you constantly get the same message, then your host is rejecting the message. You need to ask them why. It could be that because you aren't checking for email on POP3 first, their SMTP server is rejecting the message.
    Does your ISP provide an outbound SMTP server? If so have you tried that?

      Thaks Simon, so the SMTP is in fact trying to connect??

      The mail is rejected by my hosting mail server or by hotmail, gmail, etc.??

      I don't think my ISP provides that, but if they do, does the mx records have to point there?? or not?

        If you are on a dynamic IP address then you are basically using a low end business or a residential connection. Your ISP will provide an SMTP Server that you can use. You may have to call them to ask if you can route your own domain through the server, but there will be a server you can use. That is what you are supposed to do with a dynamic IP address - you cannot run a server on a dynamic IP.

          You might need to authenticate on your ISP mail server. Your SMTP connector is definately trying to send the mail. The error 550 is basically a relaying denied message. Get the details from your ISP and fill it in......

          Under advanced,outbound security in your SMTP connector. That should work.
