Trouble changing SMTP Port for email destinations

Trouble changing SMTP Port for email destinations

Trouble changing SMTP Port for email destinations

Hi All,

I've got a CR Server XI installation that runs very stably. Recently had to switch the SMTP port for email destinations.

Went into CMC and into the Destination settings for each of the 4 servers listed below, and changed the port on each from 25 to the new port.

Restarted those servers (later restarted the whole box), but when I try to run a scheduled instance of a report that sends to an email destination it fails with the error:
server error. CrystalEnterprise.Smtp: SMTP_E_TCPSOCKET_OPEN(2)

If I login to my Firewall and watch the connection, I can see the Crystal Reports Server is still trying to connect on port 25. So my settings above were ineffective.

Where else do I need to change the port to get CR Server to take the setting?

Thanks as always for any help.
