Hi,

Port 25 or 25000 depends on the operating system only, If the SAP Server is windows SMTP Port will be 25 and other unix and linux servers it is 25000.

In SCOT default domain has to defined and a email id of the same domain has to be maintained in SU01 for the user.

You can check the status of the mails in tcode SOST also.

hope it helps

Hi,

You should also check that you have correctly configured the following parameter in your instance profile and also SMICM (SMICM is only a temporary value stored in memory so it will be lost after a restart):-

icm/server_port_1 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180

I specifically use port 25000 for sending mail as this port is not occupied by Sendmail on Unix or the SMTP service on Windows. You should be aware though that inbound mail will have to be routed port 25000 from your mail server.

Let me know how you get on...

dear,

why we need

icm/server_port_1 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180

we had assigin

icm/server_port_0 PROT=HTTP,PORT=80$$

so for what purpose

icm/server_port_1 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180

while for sending mail we are using 25 port and for receiving mail 110 for our mail server

please brief me.

Hi

why we need

icm/server_port_1 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180

we had assigin

icm/server_port_0 PROT=HTTP,PORT=80$$

so for what purpose

icm/server_port_1 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180

I will break down the parameters and explain what exactly each does:-

icm/server_port_0 = Parameter name so you can identify it in the profile or SMICM

PROT=SMTP = The protocal that you will use for sending the mail. SMTP = Simple Mail Transfer Protocal. You have assinged "icm/server_port_0 PROT=HTTP,PORT=80$$" which is the HTTP protocal which is not used for sending standard mail.

TIMEOUT=180 = The timeout value that will be used to automatically close the connection if the correct SMTP QUIT command is not relayed by the mail server.

So you will need to create this parameter in SMICM and the instance profile (RZ10) of all application servers that will be used to send mail.

Please refer to SAP Note 455140 for additional information.

Hope this helps

Hi,

Do you have a SMTP relay software on your SAP server ?

You need to enter the host name of your company mail server.

Oliver, I am reading your reply.... I have a similar problem...

I need to have an email software in my system??

Because I try to use the an external email service, por example.. smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com or empresa.com , I have a account and the password, defined in those services.

Thanks in advance...
