Configure Windows hostname for server SMTP setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Windows 2008 in Azure, and am trying to set up an SMTP server.  One of the steps for the SMTP server to work correctly is to ensure the hostname is setup and reflects the DNS.

    In Powershell, I did an nslookup and also typed the dns name assigned to this machine by AzureCloud, but both queries retured "Server Unknown" and the IP address of the server.

    How do i configure the hostname so the SMTP mail server works correctly?
