Hello.  I am trying to set up SMTP on my local server.  I am on an intranet.  I've been reading a lot of the questions on here (including one I asked a long time ago, but didn't have many details), but I'm not seeing anything exact.

I have set up a Server 2003 machine.
I loaded the "E-mail Services" component.
I can see the "Default SMTP Vritual Server" directory in IIS Manager.
I can see the "Domains" directory below that.
The host name of the server is "pmcct2-2".  In the "Domains" properties, "pmcct2-2" is what is listed.

I use the attached mail script on any ASP hosting provider outside our intranet and it works fine.  However, I can not get it to work on our intranet.  I'm not really sure of the syntax for the "FROM" parameter in the script.  There is not a ".com" domain.
<%
Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
myMail.From="test@pmcct2-2.com"
myMail.To="myemail@domain.com"
myMail.TextBody=request.Form("fm_message")
myMail.Send
set myMail=nothing
%>

Do you have a firewall, if so, do you have the port open to send message traffice outside from that machine in your firewall?

Well, our company does have a firewall.  However, I can access the internet just fine and retrieve E-mail from my ISP's webmail and can also send E-mail OK.

I verified port 25 is selected on my webserver.

Not sure if that answers the question.

in that instance you are request the request for email.  the firewall will need to have a specific rule to allow that specific ip or machine to send to email to the outside.
Get with your firewall guys.
