Hi,\n\nI'm trying to use ColdFusion MX, IIS SMTP service start on my W2K server to\ncommunicate my mail server.\n\nThe Network Administrator says the Mail Server 'mail.server1.com' is set to\naccept/relay email from the W2K serve.\n\nI can Ping from the W2K server to the mailserver. But I cannot connect with\n'telnet mail.server1.com 25' . Message:"could not open port 25 : Connect\nFailed. "\n\nCan someone point me in the right directions as to what I need to test,\nopen, or do to make my W2K server connect to the Mails Server. Or what\nexactly needs to be on the mail server to talk to my W2K.\n\nthanks in advance!
