Outlook Express Does Not Send Outbound E-mail Messages
Also, Outlook Express does not send messages in Exchange format, so the messages that are sent bypass the Exchange Server information store, which would have told the Internet Mail service how to handle the message for successful delivery. The result is that the message is sent directly to the Internet Mail service. Because rerouting is turned off, the message does not get delivered.
- Start the Microsoft Exchange Server Administrator program on the SBS-based computer. To do this, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click Microsoft Exchange Administrator.
- Start the Internet Mail service. To do this, double-click Connections, and then double-click Internet Mail Service.
- Click the Routing tab.
- Click Reroute Incoming SMTP mail (required for POP3/IMAP4 Support).
- Click OK, and then restart the Exchange Internet Mail service.
After you follow these steps, Outlook Express users can send SMTP mail, but the SBS-based computer may be susceptible to unwanted junk e-mail messages. Servers with dial-up connections to ISPs are less vulnerable.
