Smtp Error
« on: August 23, 2004, 08:05:57 PM »
Windows 2000Pro
Outlook express 6

After running Mail Protection wizard and getting the now infamous error message at boot-up here it is what seems to have taken care of the issue

Co to Control Palnel > Administrative Tools > Internet Information Services > Edit port settins from 25 to 26 at the "Default SMTP Virtual Server" properties at the "advance" and "conection" tabs save and Reboot......and see what happens!

It seems to have worked fo me.....time will tell-

Actually.. I just got it working after writing that.  I changed UseDefaultSMTPserver... or whatever it was... from 0 to 1  now it scans outgoing.  go figure

It is all in the help file

"If your e-mail program supports SMTP authentication, and also makes it possible to set a different login name for SMTP than for POP, insert the line: UseDefaultSmtp=0."
