SMTP Relay Exceptions help needed

Hello,

I'm trying to set up Backup exec 12 to send notification messages via smtp to my email. Unfortunately, you can't use a closed relay. You should, the option to authenticate is there, but it just doesn't work. Symantec in their infinite wisdom knows and it's broken and won't fix it.

Anyway, I wanted to put an exception in for the GWIA. I put the following in:

from: 10.1.1.14
to: 10.1.1.40

where 10.1.1.14 is the backup server, and 10.1.1.40 is the gwia. The test didn't work, so clearly I've got something wrong. Did I misconfigure the exception or is it possible BE is being stupid yet again? Thanks in advance.

I don't think you need to specify the GWIA as the destination, as GWIA is the gateway, not the final destination.

If these backup reports will ONLY be going to your email address, try putting your email address as the TO rather than GWIA's IP. Or you can use wildcards if you have several recipients in your system (e.g., '*@your.domain.com').

HTH,
Aaron

Aaron,

Thanks. I had a couple problems going on. It seems that gwava was catching the mail and discarding it without notification. I got that part nailed down. I also changed the TO: field. The mail is delivered properly now.

Although now it seems like whatever I put in the TO: field of the exception(such as my email address as you suggested) is treated as *. It's not the end of the world, but not as locked down as I'd like.

If the destination address is your GroupWise account, then the message is
not a relay, but just a normal message coming into your GW system. So no
need for a relay exception.

GroupWise 7 GWIA SMTP Outbound Port

Can you change the GroupWise 7 GWIA's SMTP Outbound Port to something other then 25?

Outbound? You mean inbound. I think it's /smtpport

No, I mean outbound, need to send mail out to another smtp host with smtp listen port of 2331.

Thanks

You send outbound from high ports > 1024. That's standard. You ALWAYS
send TO port 25 in standard smtp. There's no way to change that.
