Multiple Server Configuration

Post by mammdo » Fri Feb 03, 2012 7:38 pm

Hi, here is my problem:

I got a server with IIS7 and no Mail Servers and other server for MailEnable only.

I can't sent mail from my webserver (php/ASP) to my domains, because the IP is not local
I added the webserver IP as a relay but only work if a send mail to domains outside of the mailserver, i can't sent email to my own domains

How can i configure mailenable to detect the webserver IP as a local?

Hi,

What is reported within the SMTP activity and debug log files when you try and send from the web server? Post up a log snippet if possible.

WebServer (10.51.0.71) IIS7 (no mailservers)
MailServer (10.51.0.69) Dedicated MailEnable server

Config PHP on webserver
Sendmail= 10.51.0.69
Port= 25
I need to use this because i don't want to authenticate in script that use mail function

On webserver IIS7 i have the site for mydomain.com
On Mailserver have the postoffice for the domain mydomain.com

I tryed to add the 10.51.0.71 to relay, but don't work, because i'm sending to a local domain

I temporary fixed this adding 10.51.0.71 to the registry "Inbound Server Bindings" in this MailEnable thinks that 10.51.0.71 is a local IP

I need a correct config or solution, please

Hi,

The the 551 error is the result of the SMTP Security option for "Address spoofing". You need to disable the option or alternatively if you are running version 6 you set the option to allow privileged IP address to impersonate. YOu will find the Address spoofing option under the SMTP security tab.

Works perfectly, i removed the IP from the registry for your records i had to add the IP 10.51.0.71 to the White list, because fail PTR. once white listed all works fine!

Thanks you so much!

Hi,
I have the same problem. I have two mail servers:
On first one I have locally: domain1 and domain2 mail hosted,
On the second one, I only have domain2 mail hosted. So, when I try to send an email from the domain2 webmail (or without it) to the other server domain1 mail server I receive this error.

I have set the option to allow privileged IP address to impersonate (Spoofing option) but I have 5.52 ME version on it. I have also whitelisted the IP Address of the other server. But the problem goes on. Have I forgotten anything to do?

Thank you in advance,

Guillermo
