Hi !! Heres the scenario: I have a webserver which is running windows 2003, IIS 6 & SMTP service. It has a public IP address assigned to it - 69.59.X.X I have a .net application which generates email and sends out the same using the my SMTP server on IP address 69.59.X.X During the pre-release testing, lots of emails were sent out from this address. This has resulted in the blacklisting of my IP address 69.59.X.X by http://dsbl.org/ Now that I have hardenend my SMTP, I wish to get myself removed from the DSBL {Distributed Sender Blackhole List}. As per the website's condition, this is what they have to say.. ------------- Quotes --------------- Please choose an email address to send the removal confirmation to (if none of these addresses are acceptable, please READ THE ENTIRE PAGE before emailing DSBL): postmaster@69.59.X.X abuse@69.59.X.X Please test the email address chosen before requesting removal using this page. If the removal confirmation is lost or deleted you will need to wait 1 week before requesting removal again. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule. Note that postmaster@ is a required address, see RFC 2821, section 4.5.1. DO NOT EMAIL US TO REQUEST THAT WE SEND TO OTHER ADDRESSES; we will not do so. ------------- UnQuote --------------- What I require from you all is... How do i configure either of the following 2 addresses on my server: postmaster@69.59.X.X abuse@69.59.X.X Awaiting your replies. Regards, Nilesh Roy.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

iis6.0 does not have inbound mail support.. BUT since iis6.0 is part of Server 2003 you can add pop service (pop3) to accept incoming mail.. this is where the MX records come into play with DNS and AD

    I DONT want to map my domain name to this IP. All I want is...... to configure a mail server.... either Microsoft POP Server or any 3rd part server so that I can create mailbox and can accept emails addressed to postmaster@69.59.X.X and abuse@69.59.X.X, where 69.59.X.X is the public IP address of my server.
