Ok I have a quandry.

Emails sent to aol or comcast.net normally go through without a hitch from our exchange server. tested and works fine.

The issue arises when i have to relay an email from the webserver through the exchange server.

below is some of the code i use. it works when sending to any other domain, like gmail, but not aol and comcast.

can someone shed some light on this?
SmtpClient myClient2 = new SmtpClient("mail.server.net", 110);

        myClient2.UseDefaultCredentials = false;

        myClient2.Credentials = new System.Net.NetworkCredential("administrator@server.net", "password");

what do your logs say?

Also, as these two machines are both behind your firewall (I assume) then does mail.server.net resolve to a local address for the weserver? if not, then a firewall rul may be preventing traffic from your network being bounced against it and redirected to back inside your network.

Another thing to check is are the messages being delivered by Exchange? do they get into a queue? Is comcast blocking them? thi can be found from the logs.

Can you confirm that your server is allowing basic authentication from the webserver IP address?

I will check the logs to see what is going on.

Mail goes out from the webserver to gmail, yahoo and our mailserver and other mailservers just fine.

It's AOL and Comcast that's the issue.

I think my issue is that even though I'm specifying the smtp server. it's still putting headers from the mail server.

i need to send from the mail server exclusively
