mail to IP address with SMTP server

Post by Simon McClenah » Fri, 06 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I am configuring an Exchange server that does not have an entry in our local
DNS yet, nor is reverse DNS lookup available outside our firewall. I try to

Exchange SMTP server.

I get a bounced mail saying the following (names changed to protect the
innocent):

.........................
The original message was received at Thu, 5 Dec 1996 11:51:37 -0500
from pop1a.mail.xxxx.com [127.37.204.5]

   ----- The following addresses had delivery problems -----

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
.. while talking to [127.37.124.76]:


.........................

Am I really making a malformed address? Or is Exchange's SMTP just rejecting
it because it doesn't recognize the [IP] format for an email address? Do I
have to add a new email address for every user now?

cheers,
        Simon
