I'm having problems getting my SMTP server to work correctly.  I run a server that is operating on a Novell Network, using IIS.  I've setup the SMTP server, where do I set my SMART HOST to?  My network email address is thorner@bsa3.kent.edu, so do I set the SMART HOST to the smtp server for there or what?  I have all of the configurations setup.  My MASQUERADE DOMAIN NAME is hermes.bsa.kent.edu, my FULLY QUALIFIED DOMAIN NAME is hermes.bsa, and I have the SMART HOST as kent.edu.  I don't know if these connections are right.  Can someone help.  I have the domain hermes.bsa set up as remote, and godzilla.bsa setup as default local.

Hmm..and it works? hehe. I thought IIS will only run on NT :)

Smart Host is used to forward outgoing mails to another SMTP server.

I.e.  if you have a "real" internet mail server running on another machine say mailserver.company.com and your IIS is running on a machine called inetserver.company.com,

the smart host should be mailserver.company.com or it's ip address.

as for the masquarade domain name, you can put company.com
and the fully qualified domain name can be inetserver.company.com

(well at least that's how i have mine set up and it seemed to work perfectly -- or so I've thought :) )

Good luck!
