Exención de responsabilidades de contenido KB retirado

Este artículo se refiere a productos para los que Microsoft ya no ofrece soporte técnico. Por tanto, el presente artículo se ofrece "tal cual" y no será actualizado.

Symptoms

When an Outlook user tries to send an SMTP message to a recipient outside of his or her organization, he or she may receive one of the following error messages:

Relaying Prohibited
- or -
No transport provider was available for delivery to this recipient.
The sender can receive this message either in a non-delivery report (NDR) or in dialog box stating that "Relaying is Prohibited." The error or NDR notification are dependant on which e-mail program the sender is running.

Cause

Service Pack 1 for Exchange Server 5.5 includes functionality to stop the relaying of spam SMTP messages through a site. The Internet Mail Service can be set to enable the Reroute Incoming SMTP Mail option, and can have the Routing Restrictions specified as Hosts and Clients that successfully authenticate. In this case, the Internet Mail Service will be able to route mail, then the Outlook client MUST authenticate before outbound mail will be sent. Without the client sending either the proper POP3 or IMAP4 authentication commands, the Internet Mail Service will deny delivery in accordance with the Routing Restrictions settings.

Resolution

To enable client authentication on:

Outlook 97

Outlook 97 uses a POP3 service account, and does not have the ability to designate a separate Inbound and Outbound mail server for receipt and delivery of messages. In this case, all that is required for authentication is a valid account name which can be found in the Mailbox Information section of the Internet Mail Service for a users' specific profile.
