  • disclaimer - event sink

    Hi forum,

    i have folloing problem: every outgoing mail should get a disclaimer message using smtp event sink.

    a special config is needed, because there is a problem with MAPI Clients.
    for this config i need two virtual servers - one is forwarding to the second and on this server i register the smtp event sink.

    i use this configuration

    virtual SMTP-Server 1
    This Server transmit messages to virtual server 2. outgoing messages are sent to 127.0.0.1 Port 26

    virtual SMTP-Server 2
    For this server is the script registered. listen on port 26. takes connections from VSMTP1 and forwards messages to the internet. using smarthost or dns

    SMTP-Connector
    takes care that virtual server 1 is used first

    additional problem is that i have no registered internet domain as test environment
    and i have no ISP smarthost.

    In the properties of the virtual server i cannot resolve the FQDN, also if i use internal mail.domain.local name - smarthost is not set.

    In the eventvwr i have 7004 and 7010 events(504 need to authenticate first), and there is no outgoing mail received.
    i gave already exchange domain servers the "send as" right like recommended for 7004 and 7010 errors and i installed bulletin update like recommended in the knowledgebase . the errors are still there.

    i use 2003 with SP 2 i think,
    how do i say to the event sink server that he should use dns for forwarding?
    how do i make outgoing mail transport?

    hope someone has the right information - thanks

    I would strongly suggest you give up with the event sink. It is a real pain to get working. Purchase a product to do it for you - there are lots of choice - I prefer Exclaimer personally but there are others. It will be more reliable, easier to change and you can do more with the product.

        Seriously - you are wasting your time trying to get it work. The restrictions and functionality of the event sink method just isn't worth the hassle. How much is your time worth? Many people have tried to get it to work, and you will find that most Exchange experts will give you the same advise that I have.

        If you ever want to change it, you have to remove the sink, recreate it, re-register it. Can you see your customers doing similar?
