If the recipient address is going outside your domain you need to make sure that the IP Address of your SAP Server is populated on the SMTP Relay Agent of you SMTP Server.

possibly a firewall / port filter in between the sap system and the smtp server ?

you can if the connection is ok by doing the following :

- on operating system level from the SAP system (on NT open a dos comand prompt) type in :

telnet <smtp server> <port of the smtp protocol>

if you get a blank screen, the connection is ok.

If you get an error, please paste into here.

Thanks, kind regards,

Thanks for reply.

my server run AIX, and if i try to connect (using shell) to my smtp server example " telnet 25", a connection can be established.

the error into the tracer say: " Error Message cannot be transferred to nodo smtp due to connection error"

and the message can´t be relayed!!!

Please refer to SAP Note 455140 for additional information.

Once you check with your network adminstrator about SMTP relay settings.
