Please can anybody enlighten me with regards to my problem?
We have a non Lotus Notes server located in the warehouse which runs an application (Kronos) that is supposed to mail out some information regarding the application activities. I have created an e-mail address say, email@example.com to be used for this purpose. Th email file is in one of our R5 Notes server. The mail is only intended for people within our Notes PAB.
We have an R4.6 MTA server which acts as our SMTP server for our external incoming and outgoing e-mail.
Using Lotus Notes client, I can successfully send mail within our domain and outside our domain. Unfortunately the non-Lotus Notes application can't seem to send the mail out. The error message relates to "can't open gateway/port 25".
I have looked at the server where the actual mail database reside and the SMTP listener task is disabled. I am thinking of enabling this task but would like to know how it would affect our external MTA. Also, would it resolve the issue we are having?
Thank you very much for your help.
