Q: Solved: SMTP Virtual server wont start

Hi

We have IIS installed for SMTP email service on our windows server 2008 R2 SP1. I am unable to start the [SMTP Virtual Server #1], i get an error message

"The service has returned a service specific error code. Check the Windows Event Viewer for details"

When i checked the Event Viewer logs and i found the below error

"The service could not bind instance 1. The data is the error code."

When i googled about this error i found that the port 25 is being used by another application which is why my SMTP Virtaul server #1 doesn't start.

I did Telnet localhost 25 and i see the port is being used by hotmail. The below message when i did telnet

220 BLU436-SMTP198.smtp.hotmail.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 8.0.9
200.16384 ready at Tue, 21 Jul 2015 07:07:01 -0700
How do i disbale the smtp.hotmail to use the port 25 so that my SMTP Virtual server #1 can use port 25. Please help.

Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi

I figured out that SMTP Proxy service was using port 25 which was not allowing my SMTP Virtual Server #1 to start. I stopped the SMTP Proxy from services and my SMTP Virtaul server#1 in my IIS started working.

Excuted the command netstat --noa in commane line tool to check the PID of the application that is using the port 25.

From the TaskManager/ Services Tab i was able to figure out the application using the PID Coulmn. Stopping the SMTP Proxy i was able to turn on the SMTP in my IIS Server.

Thanks

Hi all, I have a quick problem here and hopefully one of you may have run into the same issue and will be able to help shed some light for me. Our company has hosted email through Godaddy, and I have installed SMTP Virtual Server to run off our Domain Controller so that we can relay emails from two hardware devices (MFD and a scanner) and a server based application to our emails.

This all works fine as long as we do not email to our @companyname.com email address. Companyname.com is also the name of our domain (and the name of our website, which we had to create a forward lookup in DNS to be able to access within our network). It is not a Go Daddy issue as we have other email addresses that do not end with @companyname.com on Go Daddy which work just fine with this setup. I am assuming that the conflict is with the domain name on our network and the second part of the email address being the same. If anybody else has run into this issue, or knows a fix I would greatly appreciate it!

At the moment i am using windows server 2000 SP4, I use SMTP to send emails to customers on my auction website.

When i go to IIS to start the SMTP i get the following error:

The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Check the windows event viewer for details.

I have tried:

Checking the registry files that Microsoft told me to check.
everything seems to be fine, but even when i restart the server i get the same error.

I don't want to reinstall the IIS because of the extent of my site..

I am not to savvy on SMTP, but if you could lead me to some troubleshooting instructions i would be extremely happy.

Thanks...

Hi all

Emailing with authentication of smtp – I as usual around every month or so, email friends and family with an update, and I got the message (below) not the first time since changing to TPG, but I have an email provided to me by a friend that has a business, so my incoming and outgoing server are different.

Your message did not ! reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Subject: From me - Serena
Sent: 20/01/2013 2:50 PM
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:
*************on 20/01/2013 2:50 PM

(There where quite a number of recipients)

I wrote to my provider (tpg) and got the (below) response
(At home I use Outlook 2007, all I could find on line is how to set it up, if both incoming and outgoing server where the same)

My outgoing server is tpg but my incoming is clickatec, i told them this info.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your email.
I apologise for the inconvenience this has caused you. Please be advised of the following limits for sending email:

If you enabled SMTP authentication:
- using TPG connection, 300 recipients per email message
- using non-TPG connection, 20 recipients per email message

If SMTP authentication is not enabled:
- 50 recipients per email message.

This was recently implemented so as to avoid our mail servers being blacklisted.

OK, my problem is that the company I work for use a Virtual SMTP server which runs under IIS7. We have a number of customers who are saying they don't receive our emails.

We've looked in the logs and can see the following:-

Code:

xx.xx.xx.xx is the IP address of the 3rd party email server.

My question is:-
Where is this "Queued for delivery" message coming from?
Is it OUR email server unable to deliver the email or is it the 3rd party email server telling us it's received the email but has queued it to delivery it "internally"?

I have installed apache and edited the configuration file putting listen, 192.168.2.101 8080 in the correct place. I have setup a static IP address at 192.168.2.101.

I then setup a virtual server through Belkin's setup utility, HTTP server IP 192.168.2.101 External Port Start 8080 end 8080 Internal Port Start 8080 End 8080.

Im then told that I must use ports 8080 as the router says port 80 is already in use, this port therefore matches my webserver configuration file settings. Now when I type in 192.168.2.101:8080 Its all good and my page is displayed, but when I try and use my routers IP address to access my page i.e 80.24.16.23:8080 I recieve a "The Page Cannot Be Displayed".

I can telnet to my router but if i try telnet on port 8080 there is no response.

I am experiencing trouble with my server. There was an overnight power cut while the server was running.

I attempted to restart the server but there is no luck. A few things I have tried:

Disconnecting the hard disk and trying to boot the computer gives it power and the computer stays on, as opposed to when the hard disk is connected, the power of the machine comes on but immediately turns off (the LED's on the front panel blink very briefly.

Any help will be greatly appreciated and I thank you all for your assistance.

However, the Virtual Machine was created using - and runs within - MS Virtual Machine 2005. The VM thinks it's a stand-alone server. It doesn't "see"

The VM DOES see

As an aside, I have the same problem with a PC

That VM doesn't "see" the NIC, and lives in its own dark cave.

In each case, the VMs see all the other hardware - except the NICs and hard drives not internal to the VM.

How do I get the VM to acknowledge the NICs so that I can install the NIC drivers and open the VM's eyes to the rest of the Domain?

Will try and keep this simple.

Had an SBS 2000 server with ISA and Exchange and two NICs, 10.0.0.1 and 192.168.111.2, the latter connected to SOHO hardware firewall, which stopped working.
Replaced firewall (with one connected to hub/switch), disabled ISA and 2nd network connection, and now, the smtp feed just......disappears (outgoing mail and web browsing are fine).

Am confident that firewall and feed are configured correctly, with routes through to correct IPs etc.
I believe that somehow either ISA is still filtering incoming traffic, or Exchange is still listening for ISA rather than port 25?). However, I can't find configuration for either aspect.

Essentially, I don't really have a grasp on how this normally works (clearly!) and need some guidance. I thought that by removing ISA and only using one NIC, would simplify everything.....!

Any help would be appreciated.
 

A:smtp feed through ISA server

SMTP is outgoing mail and POP comes in on port 110. ISA server is just a proxy server so I am not sure where you have your Exchange server set up for that setup.

Look at your Internet Mail connector and look on the routing tab.

Hi,

Can e-mails be sent through a SMTP server by enforcing the authentication off for the sender's accounts? If yes, then how to do it and what all settings need to be done on the SMTP server?

 

A:SMTP server - Authentication off!

I would say the biggest question is what type of mail server are you running? As for the clients connecting to the SMTP server they have to use any client that supports SMTP Auth and they configure it under their connection settings (which most do).

A:Can't connect to smtp server

What operating system, email client and email service?

Has this outgoing smtp server ever worked for you? If so, on this machine with this email client?

Do you get any error message? If so, from what and what is the message exactly (obscure any email addresses)?

Using Outlook Express v6. All Microsoft updates loaded. The SMTP server keeps getting set to smtp.atlavia.it. I've run Spybot, Ad-Adware, NoAdware, virus scans and nothing is fixing the problem. I change the SMTP server to the correct setting and as soon as the system is rebooted it changes back to smtp.atlavia.it. I've even manually removed entries from the system registry.

I've attach my hijackthis log. Can anybody help me with this problem. It's driving me crazy.

Thanks

Hi all! I have been scouring the net loooking for some help with a problem our company is having.
We have our own smtp/pop3 server setup in house. We are using Dyndns' mailhop service in order to control spam, and it works! When someone sends our domain an email, it is forwarded to their servers, scanned and then forwarded to our server.

But lately we have been receiving our emails anywhere from one to several hours late. I looked at the headers for a bunch of messages and they are getting from point a to point b in a timely fashion, but from point b to c is the problem.

When I contacted Dyndns' tech support, they stated that their logs show that there were connection timeouts when trying to contact our server.

My question is how to troubleshoot this problem and find the point of failure.

Thanx in advance!

hi,

I tried to use a different smtp server than my ISP one, from my outgoing emails but it's not working.
I've done several researches with google and I know that there are free smtp servers, and you just have to use them with your email utility.
Unfortunately it seems I can only send emails with my ISP SMTP, is it correct? How does it work?
thank you
 

A:only your ISP SMTP server works or....

number,

To discourage spamming, some ISPs will block port 25 (SMTP) from using an SMTP server other than their own.

A:Finding smtp server

Do you know what the host/company is? If so, you can probably figure out or google their smtp server, they all have a similar format, smtp.thecompany.com for instance... If you tell me the company's smtp server you need i can probably find it for you fairly quickly...

Welcome to the world of email blacklists. Your friend's email server (looks like it's at an ISP) is now listed in the SORBS blacklist. Those SORBS folks have a bad reputation, and many view them as little more than blackmailers. You can see some of this by searching for "SORBS sucks", where you can see complaints about having to pay to escape the blacklist.

McAfee's email reputation web service, Trusted Source, says that your friend's email server is "Minimal Risk", look here:

Help!!!

I am having some major problems with setting up my server smtp and pop3..

I have my own domain which I myself am hosting on my computer. I have Windows 2000 Server and am using it for all my domain hosting needs.

I have everything pretty much working so far except I can not seem to get the email part working. I want to use my [email protected] but when I (thought) I configured the smtp correctly I found that I did not. I can not actually send mail from mydomain and can not receive email at mydomain. Also I am using MDaemon Server and it does not show any errors when loading up.

Whats wierd is that I have yahoo mail and 90% of the time their smtp does not respond. So I input my domains smtp addy and ironiclly enough it sends mail to others. But I still can not get it to send mail normally. I want to get this configured correctly so later on I can also offer others to have an [email protected] and be able to use programs like Outlook or Endora or whatnot to send and receive mail.

Any help on this matter would be great. Or if you can not answer my question then maybe you can let me know of any resources on the net, library, etc that I can check and read or whatever to help me along. Thank you very much!

After visiting a malicious website I got tons of spyware installed. I spent half of a day cleaning everything up with SpySweeper, then Symamtec antivirus (all latest), patched the recent .wmf Dec 27th vulnerability, and installed the ZA free firewall. Visible signs of spyware disappeared.

Nervertheleses, I get notes from my ISP saying that my PC is acting as an SMTP/FTP/POP3 server. They will have to shut me off if I don't resolve this (reinstalling OS is not an option). So I did netstat -n and found an established connection to an IP in Taipei, Taiwan, not captured by the ZA firewall, with all browsers etc closed. I downloaded TCPView and turns out it was Dell's PCMtest.exe.

2 Questions:
1. Is PCMtest.exe known to cause problems like mine?
2. How do I find out if my PC is doing SMTP/FTP/POP3? My undestanding is that it does not need to have a connection establihsed at all times, so PCMtest may not be the problem. Here's a list of my connectons, but it may be irrelevant. WHoever can help, thank you in advance!

A:My Pc Is Acting As An Smtp/ftp/pop3 Server

First thing is a disclaimer. I don't know exactly ...Second thing is, OS re-installation is always a viable option, even if it means an economic impact and/orlearning to do all you can to minimize the inconvenience or loss of some data.Dell's PCMtest.exe wasn't designed to assist someone(thing) in Taiwan.WinXP itself wasn't designed to promote the problems it does.They can be compromised by "other factors".That said, we (as a community) are familiar with the inherant problems your ISP has alerted you to.We have procedures, including one-on-one "counseling", that are surprisingly effective.Please read and act upon the information contained in the pinned post(s) here:Forum Guidelines ...http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/This is a security issue.It may require patience on your part, as we are quite busy, but your work prior to posting a HJT log for analysis, and careful attention to what is recommended after you do,WILL allow you to get past this unfortunate turn of events.Thank you for drawing our attention to your problem.Like I said initially, I can still learn from the detailsinvolved in your customized fix & cooperation.You are now officially not alone at it.You are a member of bleepingcomputer.com

I am using Win98 and Outlook 2000. I have an e-mail address at optonline.net. All of the e-mail I get from there is downloaded automatically to my desktop via Outlook 2000. When I try to send e-mail from Outlook, I get an error message that says " The SMTP server name could not be found. Please check name and try again". I am positive the server name is

mail.optonline.net

I cannot figure out why I cannot send mail directly from Outlook. If I go to the optonline.net website, I do not have any problems sending my mail. Does anyone have a suggestion. Thanks so much for any advice.

hi guys,

i just exported all mail from outlook express to outlook 2007 and the smtp server that was working with outlook express is not sending mail now...its coming up with relay 500 error about timing or something.

im using a hosting solution that im pretty sure doesnt offer smtp service without paying...ridiculous
and the account is held by a franchise that doesnt support them anymore so i cant request smtp service as i am not the account holder.

i tried a gmail address,which i dont really like doing as it changes the sent from email address.
besides that it keeps asking me more a password even though i know its the right password (i can log in to google with the account) despite trying to change the port settings and security...i tried everything,but it keeps prompting for password.

is there a free smtp server one can use to shoot off mail? i remember a friend a few years ago who told me about a smtp server could have sworn it was something like smtp.hotel or something like that. cant remember...
any ideas?

Problem: The Default SMTP server is missing in IIS Manager

I looked on the Microsoft site and found the article that suggested installing file and printer sharing on the network cards. I did this, uninstalled and reinstalled the application and mail server roles, but the Default SMTP server is still not showing up in IIS Manager. I can't configure domains without this option.

The Microsoft site is no help. Any ideas?
