URGENT:The remote SMTP service rejected AUTH negotiation.
Posted on 2006-04-04
I have read all the questions I can find on this problem and still can't get it to work.
I am running Exchange v6.5 on a 2003 SBS
I cannot get outgoing mail to be sent. It sticks in the Exchange SMTP queue.
I have checked the SMTP server smtp.btconnect.com, username and password by configuring Outlook Express on the server. It sends email straight away to my external web account.
Protocols SMTP Default has no authentication it uses anonymous (my understanding is that this is overridden by the connectors setting). I have tried it with basic auth as well.
I have a configured SMTP connection that uses a smarthosts connector smt.btconnect.com
Local bridgehead connects the server to the SMTP default protocol.
Advanced Tab, nothing set apart from basic authentication using the username and password that I have tested.
Address space set to SMTP
AND IT STILL DOESN'T WORK....
Any help and especially a solution will be gratefully received.
I have also tried running the connect to the internet wizard from the management console.
I have stopped and started the queue.
(Sometimes, very strange, a couple of the emails pop through and get sent to my web account. But this only seems to happen when I have changed some settings.)
