Hey Kaj,

So the Use SMTP Server for email option is enabled
and the SMTP Server Address is set to the SMTP smart host IP ADDRESS on the Internet ?

Jas

P.S. Just checked my config and all I have is a protocol rule allowing SMTP through from my internal SMTP server. This is the only difference. I have my own internal smtp/pop3 servers but shouldn't matter. Do you see anything is your ISA logs ?

Hi jason,

Yupz, that is how I configured it, I put the IP address from my emails SMTP server there and it times out, I would have to check my ISA logs to see if soemthing goes wrong, can't imagine, cause my mail (outlook) does work.

Kaj,

Can you telnet to your ISP's smart host from you IIS box on port 25?

Hi jason,

i cannot telnet to my SMTP server, it say failed to make connection on port 23, really weird.

This is what my PHP.ini says about SMTP:

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost ; for Win32 only

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from = me@localhost.com ; for Win32 only

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail -t -i").
;sendmail_path =

And my gateway is not set for the internal card.

Kaj,

Ok a couple of things :

1) Your default gateway on your IIS/SQL machine should be your internal NIC of the ISA making the IIS box a SecureNAT client.

2) The Section :
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = localhost ; for Win32 only

should read :

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = [put IP of smart host here] ; for Win32 only

3) Did you mean you can't telnet on port 23 or port 25 ? SMTP is port 25

Let me know

Jas

Hi JAson

Pretty long converstaion this is getting [Smile] )

1. My IIS, ISA, SQL is all the same box. I will get a second within a couple of months, but now it is all the same machine.

2. Ok I will insert that and test again.

3. I open de command prompt, , type telnet xxx.xxx.xx.x. and then I wait and it tells it cannot connect to the host on port 23, I then type telnet xxx.xxx.xx.x:25 and I get the same message.

It is only the mailfunction that don't work, I got all other things to work, takes time, but MYSQL and PHPBB is a nice combo, now let's get this mail thing going.

Hey Kaj,

Sorry my mistake I thought you said that the SQL and IIS were one machine and ISA was on another.

Anyway in that case configure an IP packet filter to allow SMTP through.

Or if you don't want to use an IP packet filter install the SMTP Relay, disable socket pooling so that it only listens on the internal NIC and then configure the relay to send out to your ISP smart host.

Option 1 is probably easier as with option 2 you need to configure it so that its not utilized by the wonderful people on the internet as an open relay [Mad]

Hi Jas,

I have been trying the options you gave me, but still no luck, It seems that the request won't get out onto the inetrnet, I see a lot of activity on my inertnal nic, but nothing on my internet nic

Hey Kaj,

This is something silly.

So to recap - IIS and MySQL installed on the same machine as ISA ?

You've configured IIS to listen on the Internal NIC ? And you dont have the SMTP relay installed ?

All your clients (SecureNAT ????? ) are configured using outlook to talk to a smart host (IP address) out on the Internet ? And all is fine here ( using the protocol rule for SMTP ).

You've reverse (web) published your phpBB through ISA from the Internet and all works well.

You've configured an IP packet filter to allow port 25 through ?

Jas

Yupz, that is the case, I have tested some more:
this is the error I get when typing the IP address, or the smtp2.xxx.xxx.xx (name of the SMTP server): Could not connect to smtp host : 10060 : A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

Ok now I have been running by soem of the PHPBB boards and one suggestion was to insert localhost as the SMTp server name, I thought what the heck and then I got the unable to relay error. Which I should get.
What i think is that somehow, the request to the SMTP server doesn't get through to the internet.

What do your ISA logs tell you ?

Time for NetMon I think

What you could do as a quick test is to install the SMTP relay listening on the internal NIC. Then configure this to use the smart host of your ISP's box.

Kaj,

Try the following command:

telnet x.x.x.x 25

Note: the space between the IP address an port number. What do you get ? Try this from the ISA and from a client using outlook.

You can install the SMTP relay service by going into Add/Remove windows components and doing it there.

Then open up Internet Services Manager and click on Properties.

Ensure that the IP Address is the internal NIC of the ISA.

Click on the Delivery tab and click Advanced. Under smart host put the IP address of your ISP's SMTP server. NOTE: Put it in open sqaure brackets [x.x.x.x]

Try that

Let me know

Jas
