New Domino 8.5 server not able to send SMTP mail
Posted on 2009-07-13
I have just setup a new Domino 8.5 server for a client and while it can recieve mail no problem it is unable to send external mail.
I have checked that port 25 is open by doing a telnet to another mailserver which connects fine.
when I try and send to my googlemail account I get the following error
Router: Failed to connect to SMTP host googlemail.com because the server is not responding. The server may be down or you may be experiencing network problems.
However when I try and send a mail to the server that I can telnet to I get the following error. (this server is a Domino 8.5 server)
Error transferring to XXXXXXXXXXX.NET; SMTP Protocol Returned a Permanent Error 554 : Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied
And then when I try and send to an Exchange server I get this error;
Error transferring to VSGMC.EU; SMTP Protocol Returned a Permanent Error 550 No Such User Here
(i know the above email address does exist as it is my own)
I have checked over the setting documents on the server and can not see any issues there althought i am beggining to think this is where the issue is.
on another note the domain name that the mailserver is sending out from is a godaddy domain (not sure if this could be the issue)
Your help is highly apprecated.
