Migrate to "Office 365 Exchange Online SMTP Relay Service" from XSMTP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    We are using XSMTP as of now in SQL server 2012 for sending the mails to the business Users. As per the recent mail communication from IT Exchange service, this will be decommissioned on Nov 2015.

    So I want some help related to any published documents or links to perform the migration from XSMTP to Office 365 Exchange online SMTP relay service. Can anyone share the tip on this change?

  • Hi

    Thanks for the help and information.

    We used similar steps to configure in the DB but we get the exception "unable to contact the server" and after checking with one of expert we understand the DB server should have the internet access which was not the case with XSMTP or SMTP.

    Is there a way to use without the internet access feature in DB server to retain the same Infra ? Any pointers will help..
