Trouble getting email to work

  Asked By: Andrea    Date: Jan 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 1619

I'm setting up a single server (Windows 2008) MOSS 2007 (enterprise) portal and
I just can't seem to get the email (outgoing specifically) to work. I have set
up an alert on a library as a test but nothing has shown up. We have an Exchange
2007 SP1 email server in the domain. Does anyone have any documentation on this

Make sure that the server  you have configured in Central Administration
accepts anonymous SMTP from the MOSS server. If you Exchange server
requires authentication, you'll either need to setup a rule to avoid
that for the MOSS server, or use another SMTP server as a relay to add
authentication before passing on to Exchange.

Since you are using exchange, double check your settings. SP is bit
picky when it comes to working with exchange. Might be easier to
setup SMTP on a server  instead. Instructions to setup SMTP to work
with SP can be found here:

I finally created a receive connector specifically for Sharepoint
and it seems to be working now. You'd think MS applications would play nice
with each other right out of the box......

I think i forgot to add the link that shows up to setup SMTP to work
with SharePoint.
