I beleive on the SMTP server you will need to add the ASA's IP address to be aloowed to send email. I am not sure where or how you do that but I know our Exchange Admin need to that for me.

greetings chetan.

as stated burleyman, the ASA need to be "Trusted Sender" from the perspective of the SMTP Server, if you had an Exchange Server then add the ASA IP Address to their trusted address if you had Linux Server, same issue.

This is what i though about the problem.

had a great day.

best regards.
