        Hello Daniel, how are you doing?

        I couldnt describe how helpful you were ! You did it ! Our smtp
relay servers are working fine.

        I tried to research on Technet and stuff like that, but I looked for
key words like "rfc822", "554" and "body type" and couldn't find anything.

        I really appreciated your help.

        Best Regards

        "By default, the IIS SMTP service advertises 8BITMIME and allows
MIME messages to be relayed. However, Microsoft Exchange Server versions
4.0, 5.0, and 5.5 are not able to handle 8-bit MIME messages.

        Remote Host

        Hello all

        We have just installed a smtp relay server with IIS 5.0 W2K Server.
We used
        to have a IMC connector to the Internet. Now the smtp delivers to
this IMC
        and then to our site.

        Few users outside our company are complaining that they can send us

        The error the users are getting follows:

        Final-Recipient: rfc822; xxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxx
        Action: failed
        Status: 5.6.1
        Diagnostic-Code: smtp;554 5.6.1 Body type not supported by Remote

        I think this is a silly issue. But I couldn't find anything on smtp
        because it does not have too many options to configure.

        If you can help me, I d really appreciate it.

        Best Regards,
