    smtp server

    i just downloaded some software which when installing asked me if i wanted to recieve alerts and asked for details of an smtp server on the machine. i skipped past it, i always do, but i got to thinking i want to understand this a bit better. I have exchange server 2003 on the network but not on this machine, is this what its asking for or can i install an smtp server locally? am lost any advice as always appreciated.

    Re: smtp server

    If the program needs to send informational email for alerts or warnings etc. it will be asking for either the hostname or IP address of a mail server it can use to do this.

    Re: smtp server

    Hi there,

    I would point it at the Exchange server - no point in setting up another SMTP server just for one application.

    Cheers

    Re: smtp server

    I have SMTP enabled on my laptop.
    I need it for some Uni coursework, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered.

    Having said that, it amuses the kids when I demonstrate spoofing emails!

    Re: smtp server

    I have used local Exchange 2003 servers to relay alerts. You may need to tweak the settings to allow relaying however.
