Hello to all,
I just install a server 2003 and im trying to turn this server in a smtp server for one application that need this to send us e-mail .
This is the step i use
1.Start the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs applet.
2.Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
3.After the Windows Components Wizard appears, select Applications Server and click Details.
4.Select Internet Information Services (IIS), then click Details.
5.Select SMTP Service, then click OK as this figure shows.
6.Continue to click OK to close all other dialog boxes until you're back at the Windows Components Wizard page, then click Next.

And now I did a test with using putty  (telnet port 25) and I didnt receive my test email.
In my event log in SYSTEM I have a warning SMTPSVC  i check this site for a solution

From this server are you able to do the following:

telnet 209.85.225.27 25

Does it connect?

Okay.  Your SMTP server cannot make outbound connections on port 25.  Likely you have a firewall blocking it.

You'll need to determine what is blocking it and fix that before it is able to send email.

It depends.  If you're only sending mail out, and not receiving email, then it should be safe on the domain.  You don't even have to accept inbound connections on port 25.

If it will be receiving as well, you're safer in a DMZ, but it's not necessarily required.
