    I need a SMTP relay server so out finance software can email users notifications!

    Hi All,
    I have had a linux box sat in the corner of of server room for about 5 years happily chugging away as our SMTP server.
    Last week I noticed that I wasn't getting any emails from my backups and our finance software was sending emails to staff.
    It turns out that the power supply on the linux box has packed in and I don't have a spare to replace it.

    Is there a way I can use a public SMTP server for this? Is this what other people do? Or is there a quick way i can set up a new SMTP for this purpose?

    Thanks

    We use a SMTP server in IIS and then send it through Office365.

    What are you using for your user mail server?

    I did have zimbra on the old Linux box, but is is truly dead.
    I have set up IIS 6 with SMTP on one of our Server 2008 R2 servers. Using the Microsofty office365 guide, but the mails just sit in the C:\inetpub\mailroot\Queue folder and never leave!

    You could try bumping up the logging to see if you get any clues as to the issue? Want help with IIS SMTP Service? Please enable logging. - IISLogs.com

    Cheers, I've set the logging to the max. I'll see what happens over the next few hours.

    If it is queing then it can't go out, it isn't setup properly.

    I think you can open the emails in notepad and it will tell you why it is queing, I know you cna open badmails and it tells you.

    Hello mac_shinobi,

    SMTP is enabled. We think we have this working now. The test email is working. Now need to test it with the user. We followed the instructions from the following link:

    Thanks

    Take a look at EmailRelay from Sourceforge. I had to use it to get alerts from our SAN. It works very well.
