PIX e-mail alerts

Unanswered Question
Jun 19th, 2007

I am trying to configure a PIX Firewall cluster to send email alerts. I am 95% sure I have done it correctly but nothing is getting through.

This is what I have done sofar

logging mail informational

logging from-address ***-PIX-515E@****.com

logging recipient-address mark.hodge@****.com level critical

dns domain-lookup outside

dns name-server **.**.**.**

The sh log output shows that messages are being identified

Mail logging: level informational, 78057 messages logged

I suspect it is a DNS issue, as I cannot ping by fully qualified domain, e.g.

ping ftp.cisco.com


ERROR: % Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

I am running V7.0(4) software, are there any known bugs. I may have the oportunity to upgrade to V7.2 latter this week.

I have this problem too.

Yes, sorry I missed that off my config samples. I don't have access to the SMTP server to know if it is relaying correctly, that would be my second guess for the cause of the issue.
