Re: weird problem with vsnl smtp

Hi Yashpal ,
VSNL does not allow Relaying , it will not accept any email from addresses other than the vsnl series of domains. You need to look for another open relay (i doubt you will find one) or setup your own mail server with SMTP delivery directly to the recipients server. I had the same problem , we chose to setup our own mail delivery .

Hi List,
   Today i face very peculiar problem with vsnl smart relay smtp server
giasdl01.vsnl.net.in. I have put it in my "/var/qmail/control/smtproutes" in
qmail's config file.
Now all my office mails are going smoothly without the connection from VSNL ;-)
( I am using the ISDN connection from some other ISP)
Now when i does the telnet to 25 port of giasdl01.vsnl.net.in and try to sent
the mail it says ...

rcpt to: <nagar_yash@xxxxxxxxx>
554 <nagar_yash@xxxxxxxxx>: Recipient address rejected: Relay access denied

Is VSNL uses open relay ?
Then why the mail are going ??
Can someone help me out.
