Hello folks,



I am Kailash, nascent user of livecycle. Got stuck while experimenting with livecycle example. I remember this sample was working on the very first day of install(The first example for review process). It bouncing back with the following exception. I am sorry if the message length is too much for you to read. Other observations are



1. I am able to telnet to email server

2. I have the from and to address configured at email settings.

3. It is in sync with LDAP



Please help!!!!!!!!!



Thanks

-Kailash

Hi Kailash

Have you by any chance upgraded your Virus Scanner?



We have seen a problem with version 8 of McAfee Virus Scan blocking port 25. Version 8 does this by default and will prevent mail from working properly.



If so, you can turn this off in the config settings for McAfee.

Open the console, and open the properties for Access Protection. On the port blocking tab, uncheck "Prevent mass mailing worms from sending mail".

This frees up port 25.
