I setup a front end server and want to relay all email through this server. I setup a SMTP connector to route all email to the smart host (my front end server) and now all outbound email is stuck in the messages queue for deferred delivery queue. How come it will not send out?

hi there, on the front end servers smtp virtual server you need to add the ip address of the back end exchange server to relay.

please see this screen shot following my last messsage: http://support.gfi.com/manuals/en/fax12/images/lotus%2065%20faxmaker%20default%20smtp%20server%20properties.png

also make sure the SMTP server service is started.
also you may have to mount a database as you are using it for smtp (could be wrong here though)

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hello. Thanks for the quick response. I already added the ip address and verified the smtp service is running.

Not sure what you mean by your 3rd suggestion.

i take it you can telnet on port 25 to the FE server?
the FE server can access the internet and nslookup an external domain like hotmail.com for e.g?

Yes, I am able to do all of that as well.

I tracked a few messages and it seems to be stuck in a loop.
SMTP:Started Message Submission to Advanced Queue
SMTP:Message Submitted to Categorizer
SMTP:Message Categorized and Queued for Routing
SMTP:Message Routed and Queued for Remote Delivery
SMTP:Started Outbound Transfer of Message
Message transferred to frontend.domain.com through SMTP
SMTP:Started Message Submission to Advanced Queuing
SMTP:Started Message Submission to Advanced Queuing
SMTP:Started Message Submission to Advanced Queue
SMTP:Message Submitted to Categorizer
SMTP:Message Categorized and Queued for Routing
SMTP:Message Routed and Queued for Remote Delivery
SMTP:Started Outbound Transfer of Message
Message transferred to frontend.domain.com through SMTP

....and it shows the last 8 lines over and over and over.

I was able to resolve the issue.

I forgot to create a SMTP connector for the Front End server to send outbound email. Once I created the connector email started to send out.

Thank you for your responses.
