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 ?
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 ?

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.
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

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.
