    hey all,

    I was wondering of the plesk smtp service allows our clients to use our server as a smtp server for their outgoing mail?

    I've set up a new plesk 8 box (centos build) but, i cant use my server as an smtp server for my outgoing mail.

    I've used my mailbox login also for smtp login.

    Is there anything i've forgotten? Or is this an bug?

    Many thanks

    You should be able to use the SMTP service as an outgoing mail server.

    It may help troubleshooting if you could provide any specific errors that you are receiving and the like. One common cause of this sort of problem is ISPs that block port 25. If this is the case, your clients would not be able to connect to your server. You can get around this by reconfiguring xinetd to use alternate ports for SMTP.
