Failover SMTP

Q: Failover SMTP

We have an SMTP server on our network which we use for scan-to-email from photocopiers, UPS notifications etc.. I'd like to setup a second one in a different office which can take over the load incase the first goes down.

I've done a bit of reading, but haven't been able to find anything solid on how to set it up.. I was thinking something in DNS.. but from what I understand MX records are for incoming mail from other mail servers..

Preferred Solution: Failover SMTP

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.)

I am trying to setup the Failover where it plays a video file (mpeg2 with transport stream) upon failure. If I set this file to play as a file, it works fine, but then stops when finished. What I would like to do is have this file loop continuously until the network is re-connected. I have tried to set up a playlist, but it does not work. My playlist was created using notepad and is entitled ASIC .txt

Settings ….

Backup Channel ….. Playlist
URL box is ………. file:///mnt/usb/sda1/mediafile/React (have also entered React.txt)

My txt file is attached, but is ….

media:file:///mnt/usb/sda1/ASIC .mpg
Any help would be gratefully received. Alternatively, is there a way to get the single file (that works) to continuously loop?

A:Failover from USB

There may be a way to script something to work like you want, but the script would be a lot more complicated than simply "play x". It will also need to check to see if the alarm has cleared and then stop playback. But it will largely depend on what exactly you are doing (or trying to do) as you haven't provided near enough details for anyone to help.

Hi guys,

I've recently just hooked my laptop up through ethernet cable to a shared internet connection.

I opened thunderbird to send an email through one of my mail accounts which is hooked up to its own unique online smtp server through its webhost only to receive the error message that I must change the smtp to the shared Internet connection's ISP smtp to send mail!! why cant i send through MY smtp? I've never experienced this before.

I tried changing the smtp anway to send an urgent email and thunderbird went through its processes the email was never received. I sent to test to myself after hearing this news, again the email never came through.

Any ideas guys?

A:Please check your Smtp is set to smtp.orange.co.uk

It is irrelevant which SMTP you use. I have several email accounts from different ISPs, but I SEND all emails from all accounts using the same SMTP (the one from my broadband provider). That is also the only SMTP that is available to me as long as I connect via that ISP!
So, in your case you need to use the SMTP from your shared connection.

hi everyone,how can i setup automatic fail over for this diagram.A and B are different ISP suppliers and we dont have to access for edit router configuration.both are leased lines.thank your very much for your support.

A:automatic failover

Many business class router/firewalls have feature called SLA where you can program a secondary Internet circuit as a backup to the primary. The router/firewall will do a continuous health check on the primary circuit to a designated site you choose on the Internet. If there is anything that drops under the threshold you set, the router/firewall will roll over the Internet connections over to the secondary circuit.

I'm not sure if the SMB router/firewalls which advertise themselves as dual WAN ports can operate in this manner. I do know their basic operation is to do a round robin or if link status for the primary fails will roll over to the secondary WAN port.

I am looking to design an active/standby failover but am wondering if to get clients to access the VPN you would need to have more than 2 usable IPs from an ISP? For example. the ISP inside interface will have public ip 1, the primary asa will have public ip 2, and the secondary ip will have public ip 3.

I basically want to the know the best way to design a network with 2 internal networks using active/standby failover.

A:Cisco ASA Failover Question

Read other 7 answers

I am new to all of this, I have been thrust into a situation where I need to figure this out.

We have a 2800 connected to a microwave transceiver (our main uber fast connection) and a T1 via ADC Kentrox Data Smart Max T1 (our backup connection)

This is what I walked in to.

What we/I would like to do:
-continue using the MW as our main connection
-use the T1 as an automatic failover if the MW fails due to weather or other event.
-if possible, I would like to take the T1 directly to the Cisco 2800 bypassing other external equipment.

I believe we intend to drop our current provider.

Additional complication:
We are hosting our own website and customer services via the web via this connection, if failover occurs how can we assure that traffic still finds its way to us?

With all of that said, what do we need to do?

I know this is a huge issue and I hope I can look to this forum for guidance on these issues.

I'm new to the forum. However, I really need help on my Vista OS on an HP desktop PC. I am getting the following reports:
1. "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically".

2. "Problem signature - 01 Auto Failover"

I have read some of the responses to this problem and have 2 problems. First, I am a novice when it come to this sort of thing, and next, my PC did NOT come with a disc.

Question: Obviously, Vista is Trash ie, most of the responses, and so is 7. However, since 7 seems to be the only option to upgrade to, how do I do that after purchasing a 7 upgrade disk, if I can even do it???

By the way, a common problem I find in your threads is the downloading of photos, which is the last thing I did before my PC crashed.

Also, will I lose "My Documents" if I can an upgrade???

If ANYONE would be so kind as to offer me some advice (in NOVICE Terms Please , I would greatly appreciate it.

I need to configure my router for three routes ( two separate fiber links and a radio link) with one of the fiber links being the primary link, the other fiber a secondary route and the radio a backup route for the fibers.

I am looking for a best fail-over configuration that will allow traffic to flow primarily on fiber link A and failover to fiber link B incase of failure in link A and incase of failures of both fiber links, the traffic to flow on the Radio Link. The configuration should allow for reverse once the fibers are restored.

I link my Windows home PCs (7 and some XP) to a separate file server box via a persistent network mapping. There's a separate mirroring server in place on the network too.

If one server goes down, theres an undignified scramble to remap drives so that work can recommence - but is there a quick way to have Windows 7 pick up the job of determining primary and secondary availability to speed this?

I know I could probably do something involved and complex via a virtual server and clustering but I'd prefer something simple and client-side if possible !

We have a fairly unstable Internet connection through Dodo (Please no quips about peanuts and monkeys, I know Dodo is a terrible ISP). They, and Telstra have refused to fix the problems, preferring instead to blame my equipment, despite the fact that I have replaced every part of the network many times over. Line noise on the connection is terrible, and causes anything up to 30+ disconnections a day, from anywhere between 10 seconds to 90 minutes.

As my sons play a lot of online gaming, disconnections not only kill the game, but also get them demoted on the servers.

So, they have a 3G mobile phone with 1.5GB data allowance per month.

But we are having problems finding any software (preferably FREE), that will let us set up a fail over environment such that when the PPPoE connection fails it switches to 3G, and automatically reverts to PPPoE when that service comes back online.

Any one know of any software that meets this need?

I think you are looking for Connectify dispatch which can use both the ISP connection and the 3G at the same time though it's not exactly free it may still be worth the price.

Laptop is acting strangely as of late. I was playing a game and had a GPU driver crash, which subsequently locked up my system. After having to force power it down I got stuck in the startup repair loop. I tried startup repair at least 10x, and it would always say it couldn't correct the problem. On every attempt it came back as a "Bad Driver" as the issue. On my last attempt to boot it finally went through to windows, but things are randomly crashing. I checked AVG, which says resident shield isn't active and it cannot turn itself on. I tried to run several scans and they all fail automatically saying that they were terminated. I ran Malwarebytes and it did not find anything. I would appreciate any help that I could receive.

I just cannot seem to send an email these days. (Win XP Home)

My SMTP settings are correct. I've tried other SMTP servers as well, plugging in account info from others that have allowed me, as a test. My ISP (earthlink) does not block 3rd party SMTP. My SMTP server (from doteasy) is working, because I tried setting up my SMTP and email info on another computer with a different ISP and the message sent successfully. I scanned and cleaned my registry. I scanned for spyware (Adaware), I scanned for viruses (Norton) and I turned OFF Norton to make sure it wasn't blocking emails. I've tried Netscape mail and Outlook, to see that it wasn't software. I've tried those home SMTP servers like Postcast and FREE SMTP. No matter what info I plug in to the SMTP server -- I get a message along the lines of -- SMTP server down, or not available or not accepting messages, please contact administrator. I have also fooled around with services.msc as outlined in the blackviper.com website. I've turned everything OFF, I've turned everything ON. No effect.

It MUST be something in my software settings somewhere. The OS, something....

Does anyone have any ideas?

Although i can send out emails!


Hey there,

My company recently switched to a new isp while we now get phenomenal download/upload speeds in excess of 50mb/s we have learned that our new isp does not and will not be offering an smtp server. So none of my admin team can send emails.

I set up a temporary solution with gmail but the problem with gmail is that it stores all sent email in the sent folder of the gmail account...which obviously is a security issue. You can filter the emails in the sent folder but it still only just sends it to the trash folder where it holds the email for 30 days no matter what. So obviously this is not a good fix..

Is there a secure smtp server that anyone has first hand experience with using? Our company is not big enough to need its own smtp server internally. I have tried googling smtp servers but I do not know what is safe and what is not since there will be some confidential emails being sent.

Thanks for your help!

Q: Smtp

Sorry to bother you with this, likely to be pathetic question, but... my dad owns a domain and we use our... [email protected] e-mail address'. We are hosted by freeola, we have no problem with incoming messages but outgoing ones will not send. We use smtp.orange.net for our smtp server, and over the last 2-3 days it's just not working. Would someone be able to point me in the direction of another free SMTP server? I don't want to have to download anything... although if its NECESSARY I will.
Thanks in advance,


I assume from what you say that you are using dialup? If you want a new isp provider you can goto Internet Options - Connections - Setup and follow the instructions from the wizard.

This will, of course, alter the pop and smtp settings. POP3 controls the incoming mail and presumably this is not set on your settings to POP.Orange.net at the moment but to something else. If you complete the wizard your settings will be altered to your new isp settings:
pop xxx.net
smtp xxx.net

Is this what you are looking for?

I forgot to ask - do you have internet access?

This would be your email password.

If you are unsure of your email password you will need to contact your ISP or email host.

Who is your email provider?

This might also be popping up if you have the incorrect email settings or if your ISP or email host has changed or updated the email settings and you need to correct them to the new or correct settings.

I'll also move this thread to the correct Web & Email section for you.

Ok, I know this will sound strange but I have run into a wall, and I need some help.
I have a program that manages a donor base. It has a built in feature that allows me to email people, groups by building reports etc... The BIG problem is that the program has no SMTP port settings, it is hard coded to use port 25. My hosting company only uses port 587 now! I have tried to add ":587" at the end of the the outgoing server settings like "smtp.domainname.com:587" but that didn't work...
Is there a program that I can use like a mail popper for Hotmail or Yahoo that would allow me to setup my computer to redirect a request to port 25 to port 587?
Does anyone know what I can do to get around the port 25?

Hi folks,

I'm sure the problems with SMTP is well documented in the forums, but I could not find anything relevant to my problem. I use Windows Mail for sending and receiving and much prefer it to webmail. However, I've moved from Ireland where the most common ISP is eircom which provides my email. I'm based in Glasgow and I'm using a lot of different web cafes, wifi hotspots as well as work and home. As all of these areas have different ISPs and different SMTP addresses and protocols. After doing a bit of googling, I've found a few references to smtp services, tunneling and other ways around this. I'm just wondering can anyone tell me a relatively simple and free way of getting Windows Mail to send/recieve without constantly changing my settings and keeping my original email address?

Forgot to say that I'm using XP on my laptop.

Hi All!

I am trying to send an email with MS-Outlook from my home network. I am using Winroute 6.0.4 on the server.
The SMTP port (outgoing) is permitted on the firewall.

Now.At the moment I am sending the mail, lots of SMTP-connections are established to the mail-server (of the ISP). As it reaches the maximum number of allowed connections (like 600), the whole thing comes to a stop and the mail won't be sent.

What might be the problem?
Is it normal at all, that so many SMTP connections are established?
Do I have to open some additional ports on the firewall?

Thanks in advance!!

I am not that familiar with Thunderbird and need to add in a different outbound SMTP name for sending out via my ISP since I use my inbound pop3 domain name.

When I tried to set this up Thunderbird just gives me an error message that I can't figure out.

Any ideas or pointers???

A:Thunderbird and SMTP


Look under Thunderbird
How do I setup Thunderbird for E-mail?
How to configure Thunderbird to use port 587 for sending e-mail
How to verify Thunderbird settings
Your have to find out from your ISP what the outbound SMTP name is. Plus your port for sending may not be the same but lots of pictures that are step by step and your just need to use what your ISP says.
This is for Comcast.
Outgoing mail (SMTP): smtp.comcast.net
Incoming mail (POP3): mail.comcast.net

We use Groupwise for Email system and it works great...problems that occur within our system are manageable and generally fairly east to take care of. However, one of my users received a 500 error message stating "line too long". In looking at this, I am thinking that the problem is with configuration on the receiving server's end.

Usually, administrators don't want to hear that and you need more convincing reason than "I am sure of it". My question is this, has anyone experienced this error message and had the experience of resolving it or at least being privy to how it was resolved.

If so I would greatly appreciate any advice, information or specific occurences with this error message.

thanks in advance

A:smtp outlook help!!

What email account are you using to send the emails? Most ISPs will only allow you to send email with their servers if you are also using their servers for your internet connection. This is unlikely to be the case when you are travelling.

The solution is to use web-based email, if your ISP provides that facility, or a free email account such as gmail/googlemail, yahoo etc.
