Outlook fails to provide SMTP Authentication
Posted on 2002-05-30
In order to prevent non-authorized users to
use our companies SMTP server, and to allow
remote company employees to use the SMTP server,
we now require the SMTP server to authenticate
a user before sending the requested e-mail.
Weird thing is that from Outlook 2000, the authentication
always fails. However, using the same user/password
for authentication Outlook Express can authenticate
and send via the SMTP server.
Obviously, having gotten set up using Outlook, I
would like to keep using it (and not Outlook Express).
Anybody have any ideas? I am fairly certain I have
the client configured correctly, since you do
basically the same things from both clients (and
it works in one).
Please ask if you need more details.
