FP 2002 Server Extensions non-anonymous email

I'm hosting a test version of our online site(which is hosted offsite) on a LAN webserver (IIS5, W2k).  I created a form and have the results emailed to myself.  It works great when it runs on the hosted site.  When i publish it to the local webserver, however, it bothers me for username, password, domainname on SUBMIT.  There is no place in the server extensions mail setup to speicfy smtp credentials, so I guess that since I don't allow anonymous email to pass-thru my exchange server, there is not much I can do.


Does anyone have any suggestions?  can you verify that FP02SE only supports anonymous smtp?

Try re-installing the FP extensions.  It is not asking for the user name / password to the SMTP server.  It is a permissions issue on your folders if I can remember correctly.

no i'm pretty sure it's a exchange/credentials thing.  Had a similar problem with copiers. We bought 2 copiers that were both "compatible" with our system according to the salesman.  One of them could only send anonymous email.  This was no good, as our exchange server requires authentication.

Just to check tohugh, I tried re-installing the Server extensions.  No luck.  If i change the form to save results as a file on the webserver rather than email them, it works fine.

Can you whitelist your server IP address?

I owe you an apology cb, it seems that exchange will use whatever credentials the user is logged in as during the web browsing.  Allow anonymous access meant that it was using the credentials for the IIS_user account which does not have a mailbox or the ability to send my on my server.  Changing anonymous access to use an account that has permission to send mail has fixed the problem.  I'll up the points and give you what you deserve
