Receiving OK, unable to send

Post by Maximilian Reh » Mon, 11 Dec 2000 22:39:32

Hi everybody,

I've setup exchange and am able to reveive mail from the Internet, however
when I try to send into the Internet I get the an "SMTP Protcoll error" in
the appropriate message queue properties dialog box.

My configuration is as follows:
Since I am trying to receive mail for a different domain (i.e.

second virtual server and bound an SMTP Connector to it.  All this works
fine since I am able to receive mail.

The virtual directories that exchange creates in IIS during the installation
have an error symbol next to them with the message "Can't connect to
<installation path>"

I've deinstalled and reinstalled the SMTP service and ran Service Pack 1
again but this didn't work.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this an Exchange Problem or an IIS

Thanks in advance
