SMTP delivery Service not possible to set to stopped !

Postby sigih. » Aug 24 11 8:53 am

Hello !

Is there a way to stop the SMTP delivery service to stopped instead of paused ?

Where can I change the notification to the internal mail server ?

regards

WinGate relies on being able to deliver notification emails about issues.

So we don't allow the SMTP delivery service to be stopped, only paused if you wish to pause delivery at a particular time.

Why would you want to stop it? If there's nothing to deliver, it won't have anything to do. If it does have something to deliver, do you want to receive it? If you don't want to receive it, why is it in the queue? Maybe need to look at the source of the mail.

What do you mean by notification to the internal mail server?

Hi

to do that, add a domain for the destination domain of the admin email (e.g. your internal email domain), and set it to deliver for that domain to your internal server.

then when WinGate needs to deliver a notification mail to that domain, it will send it to your internal server rather than using MX Lookup and trying to deliver out to the net.
