send email via smtp server

Question asked by crystal on Sep 1, 2011


send email via smtp server


I want to test if the send email via smtp server works. So I go to file menu and select send, then select email, then type in the TO: address, subject and message content. Then set send via smtp server, leave name blank, type in the email address send from, then mail server, port, no encryption, no authentication. It returns the error "Email(s) could not be sent successfully."

We have set the ip address to be a anonymous reley for the email server. I tried telnet and send the email out successfully. Another thing I found is it can send email internally in the LAN, but not out of the company. 

I have seen some posts that had wired behavier, I only type in the email address, leave name blank. I don't know what else I can do. 

Any suggestions?
