SMTP relay (IIS 6) with Office 365 not working - 550 5.7.1

Hi,

I hope someone can help me to get an SMTP relay working. At the moment, we are in a hybrid Office 365 setup with 2007 and 2010 on-premise Exchange servers. We are looking to decommission these as soon as possible so I am trying to get an SMTP relay working and have more or less followed these instructions: http://www.getoffice365trial.com/configure-office-365-smtp-relay/

To test this, we have a UPS that sends notifications via SMTP. I changed the SMTP server address to the IP of the machine I have setup as the relay and, according to the UPS, the mail sends. But it's never received. If I look at the logs, it shows:

132.245.210.2 - OutboundConnectionResponse [16/Apr/2014:13:24:29 +0000] "- -?250 2.1.5 Recipient OK SMTP" 0 22
132.245.210.2 - OutboundConnectionCommand [16/Apr/2014:13:24:29 +0000] "BDAT -?2391 LAST SMTP" 0 4
132.245.210.2 - OutboundConnectionResponse [16/Apr/2014:13:24:34 +0000] "- -?550 5.7.1 Client does not have permissions to send as this sender SMTP" 0 65

Open in new window


I think this is because, in the outbound security section on the relay I have it set to "Basic Authentication" and the account details that are in there probably don't have permissions to send as the address the UPS sends as. I tried changing this from Basic Authentication to Anonymous Access and get this in the logs:

157.56.253.6 - OutboundConnectionCommand [16/Apr/2014:13:48:17 +0000] "MAIL -?FROM:<> SIZE=2364 SMTP" 0 4
157.56.253.6 - OutboundConnectionResponse [16/Apr/2014:13:48:22 +0000] "- -?530 5.7.1 Client was not authenticated SMTP" 0 38
157.56.253.6 - OutboundConnectionCommand [16/Apr/2014:13:48:22 +0000] "QUIT - SMTP" 0 4

Open in new window


Also, if I just drop a test file into the pickup folder it generates a .bdr file in the Badmail folder that states:

U n a b l e  t o  d e l i v e r  t h i s  m e s s a g e  b e c a u s e  t h e  f o l l o w  e r r o r  w a s  e n c o u n t e r e d :  " E r r o r  i s  p r o c e s s i n g  f i l e  i n  p i c k u p  d i r e c t o r y . " .


T h e  s p e c i f i c  e r r o r  c o d e  w a s  0 x C 0 0 4 0 2 C E .

Open in new window


I'll happily provide all the setup details if needed. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

Thanks in advance.

the account details that are in there probably don't have permissions to send as the address the UPS sends as

I believe that is your problem right there.  Make sure you are using account credentials for the address you are trying to send as or grant Send-As rights to the creds that you are using.

I really should have realised that. Thanks for pointing it out. I now have another SMTP relay problem but I'll post a new question about that. :) Thanks for your help.
