SMTP Mail failure

SMTP Mail failure

SMTP Mail failure

Below is the Flex code we are using to send email in the customised screen OE0101. It was working fine for the last 5-6 years but the server has changed last friday and since then, no message is sent. The only thing I have changed is the name of the server.

The Flex code below does not return any error but does not seems to send the email.

I am sure the issue is on the new server but I can't point my finger on it.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Private Sub SendEmailSmtp(strEmailToRecipient As String, strEmailCCRecipient As String, _
strEmailSubject As String, strEmailMessage As String, strFilename As String)
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Set oSMTP = New OSSMTP.SMTPSession

With oSMTP
.Server = "vorw2ksrv01.vortex-intl.com"
.MailFrom = "NewOrderMail"
.SendTo = strEmailToRecipient
.CC = strEmailCCRecipient
.MessageSubject = strEmailSubject
.MessageText = strEmailMessage
End With

Set oSMTP = Nothing
Exit Sub

MsgBox "Error No: " & Err.Number & vbCrLf & _
"Error Desc: " & Err.Description, vbCritical, _
"Vortex [Report Error to System Admin]"
Exit Sub
End Sub

RE: SMTP Mail failure

Is SMTP configured and working on your new server? The SMTP server is not installed by default. SMTP can be added through the Features Summary area of the Server Manager tool in Windows Server 2008.

RE: SMTP Mail failure

The person responsible for the server told me, after verification, that SMTP is configured and working.

Any other ideas???

RE: SMTP Mail failure

The error was on the new email server. It was not accepting the short name of the email anymore. As example, "yourname@compagnie.com" works on the new email server but not "yourname" only.
