    Setting up SMTP on Windows 2003 Server / Umbraco

    Hi Folks

    I'm having a wee bit of trouble getting emails into cyberspace.

    I web.config I've added this part in system.net > mailSettings:

    <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory">
    <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="C:\inetpub\mailroot\Pickup" />
    </smtp>

    But nothing really gets through ...

    If I create a static email on my desktop and copy it in the Pickup folder, the email is sent and lands in my inbox within minutes.

    Nothing really shows up in the umbracoLog table so I think permissions are OK.

    Any ideas ?

    If I Telnet into the SMTP server I have no problem sending emails.  It's just like Umbraco isn't generating the actual mail itself.

    I've looked in the UmbracoLog table in the database, but there are no logs related to mail, smtp or permissions.

    You getting anything in Event Viewer....permissions or something like that maybe?

    Allow everyone full control to C:\inetpub\mailroot\Pickup ?

    Hi Mark

    Nothing in the Event Viewer and I just tried with Everyone ...
    And if it was a permission problem, wouldn't I get errors in the UmbracoLog table ?

    Sebastian,

    I'd have thought you would have got errors in the UmbragoLog but as you weren't seeing anything then the Event Viewer may have shed some light on what was happening.

    Something like this isn't going on is it .--> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8421330/specifiedpickupdirectory-will-not-create-files-until-viewed-by-a-user-on-the-ser
