5.7.1 no relay with IIS SMTP server

I am trying to use CDO to send emails from an ASP page.  The script I am using in my ASP page works fine.  All the message are dumping into the MailRoot folder with a 5.7.1 no relay message.  

I am not sure what to look for at this point.  Some type of DNS issue....

I would change it to have the CDO use the Exchange server to send mail rather than the local SMTP server, less overhead that way and more reliable.  Can it communicate with the Exchange server directly?  You can use the DNS name or IP address in the below example:

<%
Set myMail=CreateObject("CDO.Message")
myMail.Subject="Sending email with CDO"
myMail.From="mymail@mydomain.com"
myMail.To="someone@somedomain.com"
myMail.TextBody="This is a message."
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing")=2
'Name or IP of remote SMTP server
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") _
="smtp.server.com"
'Server port
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item _
("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") _
=25 
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Update
myMail.Send
set myMail=nothing
%>

Probably an authentication issue or you just don't have the SMTP server configured to allow that server to relay.  Did you look at the properties of the SMTP server in IIS?

I have checked the properties and granted the localhost under the relay access permission... not sure what else to check... IIS 6.0 Win2k3server with SP2...

Enable logging on the SMTP server and try it again, check the log.

Also, check you config against this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230235

In the link, it mentions Smart Host, I am not sure what that means.  I have a local DNS server that is for the local network only, it doesn't resolve names for the internet.  BTW I am only trying to send emails on the local network from this app...

I followed the article, it does mention that it applies to IIS 4.0 and I am using 6.0 but I followed along...

Access is set to allow Anonymous...

Mail is no longer ending up in the bad mail directory, it is in the Drop directory....???

How are the users getting email?  Exchange server?  Did you look at the SMTP logs?

Yes, they receieve email via exchange server/outlook.  I don't see any log files being generated other than the IIS log file.  Logging is selected in the SMTP directory I am not finding the log...

I will give that a go shortly and let you know what happens.  On line 8, what does the number 2 signify?

I think "sendusing = 1" means use local and "2" means use remote.

Did you use the server DNS name or IP address for this line:

'Name or IP of remote SMTP server
myMail.Configuration.Fields.Item ("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") ="smtp.server.com"

?

Can is resolve the server name and DNS name using nslookup from the command line?:

nslookup mail.domain.com
