  • SMTP to relay emails

    Hi,

    I am trying to set up an application to send an email notification to myself.

    This application is on a different domain than myself, and there is no exchange to relay upon, nor any other mailing system in place.

    I have tried to set up an SMTP relay server, but cannot get it to send notifications out.

    Can anyone please put me in the right direction?

    Thanks alot for your replies!!

    Server 2008 has an SMTP server available if IIS is configured (http://www.google.co.uk/#sclient=psy...pw.r_qf.&cad=b)

    Can you tell us
    a) what you have set up and
    b) what problems or errors you are getting?

      Re: SMTP to relay emails

      So far I have:
      Installed SMTP on IIS6 on a Server2008
      Given the IP "All unassigned"
      Authentication as "Anonymous access"
      Connection "All except none"
      Relay "All except none"
      SMTP is running

      Now I wanted to test-email out, using Telnet (as I couldnt download WinMail on the server)

      Telnet>
      o <servername> 25
      ok
      helo <servername>
      Hello <ip of servername>
      mail from: [email protected]
      Sender OK
      rcpt to: [email protected]
      OK
      data <type in some data>
      250 2.6.0 <[email protected]> Queued mail for delivery

      I have not received the email, nor I can see it stored on the inetpub>mailroot> folders

          Re: SMTP to relay emails

          Thanks for the link, I think I have used a similar link specific for SMTP&IIS6.
          Im quite sure the SMTP has been properly configured.

          Can I ask a couple of questions:
          In order to send emails out with the SMTP service, do I still need to own a domain and point the MX to the server?
          Can I not use my internal domain? For example send an email from [email protected] to [email protected] ?

            To send, no
            But note the receiving server may check if the email is from a valid domain or authorised server

              So bottom line....

              In order to send eventvwr-mail-notifications or BackupExec-mail-notifications from a server I need to have an internet-presence set up in that domain.....
              Am I correct?

                Re: SMTP to relay emails

                I have finally managed to send/receive the email notification from this server without the need of a MX.

                I have sent an email as [email protected] and received it to my hotmail account.

                The problem was on the user used to create the mail notification in task scheduler, for some reason it did not like the administrator... so I created a new user and added to the backup group.

                It worked, thanks all that help here!!
