  • Email services only work with internal addresses ...

    We use a MS Exchange server for our email accounts here at work.

    I entered "exchange" as the SMTP email server when setting up PHP.

    The email services work perfectly for the email accounts that are set up on the Exchange server -- the verification process in registration, automatic email notifications, etc. No problems.

    However, if I try to use an address from outside the company (e.g., [email protected]), then I get errors:

    During registration, I get an error on line 458 of register.php
    During replies to [email protected]'s post, I get an error on line 203 of newreply.php.

    I would assume this has something to do with our firewall and routing through the DMZ? However, I was hoping to get a little insight from you before going to my IT department -- who are as surly and lazy as they are ignorant and incompetent.

    Thank you.

    Have you tried using the server's IP address?

      Yes, I have and it doesn't help. Either way I get the same error -- the script somehow cannot complete the automatic email.

      The irony is that I get the automatic email telling me that someone has registered, but the registree doesn't get his email.

        We seem to be in the same boat too. We're using Exchange on W2K and using any email address other than known (internal) ones we're seeing:

        Warning: Server Error >> register.php on line 458 and the user never receives the email...

        Is there anywhere to specifiy a login and password for the mail server.. I'm wondering if the issue is permissions to send email via the server??

            Thanks for the point.

            However, I couldn't figure one thing out:

            My email server is physically separate from my web server. Do these instructions require access to the email (exchange) server, or is all of it done on the web server?

            I re-read it several times and couldn't tell which "box" I was supposed to start messing with.

            Thanks.
