Unity Connection SMTP notification

Answered Question
Jan 15th, 2010

Hi All,

we are using unity connection 2.1 with SMTP notification. the problem is, our smtp server is offsite and need authentication to allow incoming SMTP traffic. I don't see anything in unity connection SMTP authentication. it only has SMTP IP address. I know with CUE, we can specify SMTP authentication.

thanks for any suggestion.

Alex

I have this problem too.

Alex,

When you setup SMTP notifications in unity connection, you need to supply a smart host, which technically doesn't need to be an SMTP server.  A smart host is used to relay smtp messages.  I do not see anything in the smart host configuration for unity connection which allows you to send authentication.  Perhaps you can use an SMTP relay service, here is one I found http://www.dnsexit.com/Direct.sv?cmd=mailRelay.  I also found a guide on how to use the IIS service in windows as a smart host here http://support.microsoft.com/?id=kb;en-us;Q230235.
