SMTP Server Setup
Posted on 2006-10-24
I am having problems getting SMTP working under IIS on my XP Pro machine. I managed this successfully on another similar machine. The SMTP server settings look very similar on both machines.
When I run blat on this machine nothing appears in the Drop or Queue folders. It doesnt matter where I address the email message, the result is the same.
This is an SMTP email server on a local machine, not on an ISP host. On the local machine the <Properties>, <Delivery> <Advanced> settings for the Default SMTP server shows proteomcapital.com as the Masquewrade domain and proteomeu1.proteomcapital.com as the Fully-qualified domain name.
So I tried to telnet to proteomeu1.proteomcapital.com on ports 23 and 25 but it failed on both cases.
What am I missing, Experts? I am fairly dumb about this so it could be something very simple.
