SMTP Server

SMTP Server

SMTP Server

I have an existing system installed a few years ago. The client had an internal SMTP server. In the SMTP tab under system I entered an IP address in the SMTP server address box as 192.168.xxx.xxx. That was working for all this time with no issues. Now the client says VM to EM is not working. The companies IT department recently decommissioned the SMTP server and switched them to smtp.office365.com. The version on this system is
Can I enter smtp.office365.com in the server address or does it have to be a numerical IP address for this system version? I guess I am looking to see if this version will render via DNS or would it have to be upgraded in order to work? I don't want to just try it to see as this is a reboot change and not a merge. Thanks in advance for helpful replies.

RE: SMTP Server

You can enter a FQDN for SMTP servers for IPO release 9.1.

Obviously make sure that your DNS addresses are also set.

I will try it. Thanks.

RE: SMTP Server

Got it working. Previous smtp server was an internal server on same network so I learned I needed to create an IP route with LAN1 as destination with gateway IP address entered.
Thank you Qzwsa for for your guidance.
