Right, I'm at my wit's end with this.

I've been configuring a website on our new server, including setting up some new pop mailboxes. I have used IIS for this.

I have installed and configures the pop/smtp packages.

receiving emails fine, via pop.

Server won't send any messages. Comes back saying "cannot relay messages for <insert address here>....."

Port 25 (smtp) is responding, no firewalls etc... getting in the way

It's being a pain in the arse.

Any ideas?

Thanks

It may be that your ISP is blocking that port. Some ISP's block that port because of that SPAM bots abuse it for creating an SMTP server to send SPAM.

Tried various ports.

The port is open, and scans as such.

It's not a home server btw.

I'd assume that he's probably using a proper Server on a proper Internet Connection.

What server software you using for the email server?

Edit: Yeh, hougtimo beat me too it.

Pop is acting up now. Mail not arriving, but not being returned. Looks like a dns issue? MX and A records are perfect though :(

Stuff it. Anyone know of a good webmail package? :P

Sorted it. Ditched IIS for "Hmailserver" - works perfectly.

Good choice. Used it for years without problems. If you still want webmail, use http://www.v-webmail.org/ :)

It works with any mail server, its a standard webmail script, all it requires is php support and a few php extensions (namely IMAP).
