When I attempt to subscribe to a report in Reporting Services it gets the error "Failure sending mail: The transport failed to connect to the server."
In the email settings in Reporting Services Configuration Manager the SMTP Server is not the server that the Report Server is on, but is another server in the network. I can send SMTP email from that other server.
I have found this article on the subject http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms345234.aspx
. One of the things that it says is required is "Verify that the Report Server Windows service has Send As permissions on the SMTP server." I don't know what that means, if it means that the account that the windows service logs in with needs to have access to the SMTP server then it does, it logs in as a domain account that access to the step server.
Any help would be great.
