I think you have a problem...if your firewall filters outbound connections
to port 25 then how are you going to send SMTP mail outside your
organisation?

If you are sending within your organisation then you don't need the Exchange
server. The SMTP service should be able to deliver fine as long as it can
resolve the destination host via DNS.

Change the settings on the SMTP service so that it sends non-delivery
reports say, after an hour of trying (the default is 48 hours), and then you
should be able to see it attempt to deliver a non-delivery report after an
hour. If it fails to deliver the non-deliver report, this will sit the
Badmail directory as well. You should be able to open it up in Notepad and
read it.

tanks Ken,

I set the settings for relay as you said. in the queue dir I found no files.
Our netadmin says the exchange server BYHNS052 which is the one I'm routing
to doesn't have a setting for SMTP, i.e. cannot handle SMTP. In addition the
firewall filters all SMTP (so he says). What do you think? How could I
create an Outlook object in VBScript?

Dirk
