[EP-tech] eprints integration with office365 SMTP



Hi Francis,
[NB I'm no expert on these matters - I'm sure others here know a lot more than I do about mail servers!]

If I've followed this email thread properly, you have confirmed that you can send an email from the server via 'mail'.
Was this as 'you' or as the EPrints user (have you tested both)?

This write-up:
https://secopsmonkey.com/mail-relaying-postfix-through-office-365.html 
makes it sound like there may be some blocking of emails happening - EPrints will send the email from the 'adminemail' address (eprints at iisc.ac.in) - which might not be allowed by the Office365 server.

If you try changing (temporarily) the adminemail address (normally in ~/archives/ARCHIVEID/cfg/cfg.d/adminemail.pl) to your own email address, and then send a test email, does the email get sent? 

The follow-up post to the above: https://secopsmonkey.com/better-mail-relaying-postfix-through-office-365.html might also be useful.

Cheers,
John

Hi Enio, Thanks for the reply. Yes port 25 is open

 netstat -napt | grep 127.0.0.1:25 doesn't find the pattern, but
netstat -napt | grep 0.0.0.0:25 returns the following output:

tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:25              0.0.0.0:*
LISTEN      106776/smtpd

Also, I'm able to telnet to port 25:

telnet 127.0.0.1 25
Trying 127.0.0.1...
Connected to 127.0.0.1.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 localhost ESMTP Postfix

Best regards, Francis
