SMTP connection manager error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I am getting an error with my SMTP connection manager.

    The progress message when the package is executed is,

    [Send Mail Task] Error: An error occurred with the following error message: "Failure sending mail.  System.Net.WebException: Unable to connect to the remote server  System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it

    I am definitely using the correct SMPT address. Is there any other setting which I have to configure?

  • Can you check if exchange server setting is correct?

  • Yes the exchange server is correct. 

    Is there something which I need to get enabled on the exchange server for things to work?

  • Hello,

    You need to configure relay in exchange server to allow sql server send email.

  • You may have an issue with the firewall. Try to disable the server firewall and see if it helps.
