Email Alerts Broken for Anonymous SMTP Servers
Tried these setups
1- Fresh new install NO UPDATES with or without firewall
2- Fresh new install + All Windows Updates with or without firewalls
email server is an externally provided ultra basic unencrypted unauthenticated smtp server for which every other piece of email/alerting software in the company work flawlessly
- intrusion detection
- several raid alerting sortware
- email clients
- video surveillance software
Whatever the settings I use, test emails always fail.
No errors are logged nowhere in the windows log..
Using wireshark it seems that ADM ALWAYS SENDS an AUTH LOGIN command event though I DO NOT SPECIFY ANY LOGIN INFORMATION : it's an anonymous smtp server
This should have been caught early in QA... But hey, it's never too late !!!
Thanks in advance for fixing this shameful bug
