Email Issue -Sharepoint WSS 3.0

Hi ,

I have a strange issue that im unable to fix, we have migrated from exchange 2003 to exchange 2010.

I had a distribution set for recieving email from the sharepoint WSS 3.0 (no MOSS) re access request to the sites etc.. when the sharepoint was pointing to the old exchange 2003 as an smtp server, emails alerts worked as expected. Since pointing it to the new email excahnage 2010 server as an smtp its not working, (even though when user request access from sharepoint it say request send successfully).

I have checked all the settings again and again and made sure the IP of the sharepoint is listed to relay through the exchange 2010- i have even specifed my own email address in the reply to address in sharepoint under outgoing e-mail settings to no avail?

Whats going on and how can i fix this?

p.s - Another strange thing is that alerts set in document library etc are working fine, using the very same distribution group. (we get alerts every morning of any changes)- so it looks like there is something wrong at the central administration level within the sharepoint...?

Thanks

Hi,

sorry I did not understand your response.

If your SharePoint server has two IPs - lets say 10.0.0.4 for the server and 10.0.1.5 for the SharePoint web application - then you should configure Exchange server to relay for 10.0.0.4 and 10.0.1.5.
As you wrote, alert emails are sent which means that the IP used from the Windows SharePoint Timer Service is allowed to send, the SharePoint IIS Web application not.
Can you enable some logging in Exchange (I am no pro in Exchange) - perhaps you can see some "Denied" events.

sorry for the delay reponse- i meant we have two ip for the exchange server not  the sharepoint (sharepoint has only one IP). where else can i check settings for sharepoint IIS Web application for email alerts?

Thanks

You don't have unique settings for outbound email on each of your web apps, correct?  You can make the global setting in System Settings - Outbound Email.....but you can also set this per web application (which overrides global) in web application management in Central Admin.
