I am using Microsoft Outlook 2010 for email client. In outlook 2010 I have entered IP of my mail server for SMTP address.

Hello Sir,

If you are simply referring to the Sendmail config file then this is what you are after:

Important: Make a backup of the file first!!!


The line that needs to be changed is:


dnl define(`SMART_HOST', `')dnl
Simply substitute with the name of your current ISP's SMTP server.

Don't forget to rebuild the file after making any changes by performing the following:


- this regenerates the file

An important note to make: As this is a live server acting as an internal / external MTA from a security point of view, consider at least moving to a newer supported version of an Op. System so that you will still receive regular updates / security fixes / patches etc. Ok you may have a learning curve, but your system provided it is correctly configured will be much more secure + you will have the added benefits of refreshing your existing skillset.
