this is almost the same answer as the article that I used to configure the smart host. I have already done what the solution suggested but then no mail will flow at all. I need to configure all email to go out through a smart host. At the moment when I do as your articles suggest I get the error message " an SMTP protocol error occurred". Therefore, there must be something else that I need to do?

I have managed to configure this now. Thanks very much for your help. The solution was that I had to add the outbound server IP address to the McAfee SAAS control panel. Thanks for your help anyway. It did point me in the right direction to arrive at a solution.
