I saw the other persons problem and did what you said
about telnet to the ip on port 25.
This is what the banner says:
220 access21.SBD.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service,
Version: 5.0.2195.5329 ready
at Wed, 9 Jul 2003 11:24:52 -0400
access21.sbd.com is the back-end exchange server
name....but should it not be the front-end server which
is supposed to be the SMTP VS? Just so you know that
sbd.com is not a valid DNS name on the internet.
Any ideas of what I did wrong.
