Interesting. The Microsoft documentation states they were added in IIS
5.1.

I looked those up on my Windows 2000 Server Standard Service Pack 4.

Good to know. Those change the same properties as I told you about in
the other KB articles. :-)

 

However, those were not added until IIS 5.1 (WinXP) and IIS 6.0
(Win2003). So, for earlier versions (Win2000) you still need to refer to
the KB articles I mentioned.

 

Me, personally, unless I was building a script for multiple servers,
would never script something like that when I could change it in a GUI.
But options are a good thing.

 

Thanks,

M

LM\SmtpSvc\instancenumber\FullyQualifiedDomainName

LM\SmtpSvc\instancenumber\DefaultDomain

 

Try changing it and then do a telnet session.

 

;)

 

Don't forget to restart the service.

I believe you are mistaken. Where and how?

Well, my terminology may not be correct, but the FQDN of the server as
seen in an SMTP handshake can indeed be edited using MetaEdit. I have
been told it can be done in the SMTP Virtual server properties but I
have not done it there, but I have done it use MetaEdit.

No. Your are confusing the SMTP banner with the hostname. The banner is
configured with metaedit (in IIS5 or before, you use adsutil in IIS6),
the hostname is configured in the SMTP Virtual Server properties.

 

See KB articles: 314331, 836564, and 370027.

I know with just the IIS SMTP virtual server you can use MetaEdit to
change the HELO greeting, which is what you need to do.

Mail from my server sent to earthlink bounce with the message

 

There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email
server. Please contact your system administrator.
<xchange2.bio.hunter.cuny.edu #5.5.0 smtp;550-EarthLink does not
recognize your computer>

 

My guess is this is because earthlink is seeing my server as its
domain.local name  (xchange2.bio.hunter.cuny.edu ) instead of its
external DNS name which would be genectr.hunter.cuny.edu. Is there a way
to make sure my server communicates using its external DNS name
