    [solved] 550 This address is not allowed - only for my webmail


    Hello.
    I am having trouble sending email to external addresses via our webmail component. We are using Mercur Messaging 2005, an old outdated mail server software but it has worked fine for our needs. The webmail has worked fine before but now I'm getting this error. Here's the webmail log for the error.
    Code:
    00000 SMTP  2011-02-21 13:30:07 ***  Connecting to localhost

    It works as usual if I send to the same address using the same account via Outlook. The SMTP log:

    I notice that the regular service uses enhanced SMTP (EHLO) and webmail uses HELO. I can set the webmail to "use local MERCUR SMTP service" or "use the following server" and set it to my server, but it makes no difference, it does not use EHLO. The SMTP setting is set to use it in "options -> server -> protocol" and it does for Outlook, as seen above.
    I can send to local addresses via webmail but not to other addresses.
    I can't recall what has changed in the settings for it to stop working. We added a Domain Controller in the LAN and had the DHCP server add it as the primary DNS. I set the DNS back manually for the mail server now. It is on DMZ and has no access to that Domain Controller so I don't think that should affect this but that's the only thing I can recall has changed.
    I can't find any more settings to try. Since it works for Outlook it should be able to work for webmail but I'm no expert at this, I don't know. Does anybody here, perhaps...?
    Thanks.

    When you set it to use your server, are you using your domains mail server or the ISP's, or have you tried both?

    I set it to use our server, using mail.my.domain. I haven't tried any other as I wanted to use our local mail server. I'm sure it was set to use "internal SMTP service" before.

    Is mail.my.domain the same SMTP server being used within Outlook?

    Thank you for your help. Very fast response here.
    You can disregard my problem... I restarted the service from the controls and it started working. I had only used the "Apply"-button, as that's usually all that's needed to save and activate changes. Sorry about that.
