Exchange 2016 Mail Flow for Virgin SMTP

Hi there,

I am running a Test Exchange 2016 server and having some difficulty getting the mail flow send connector to work.

I am using the following details:

SMTP:  smtp.virginmedia.com

User name: xxxx@virginmedia.com

pwd - my password 

I have ticked Offer basic authentication only after starting TLS

But emails are not being sent.  

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks

Dos this help? VM mail servers do not support MS Exchange. VM mail is a residential service.

@HowardML 

he thing is we don't know if the OP is running a business, or is just trying to run a Vanity server using Exchange.

The main problem with exchange is that it doesn't support SSL/TLS on the outbound mail connector side, it only supports StartTLS whereas VM's outbound SMTP server doesn't support StartTLS but instead only supports SSL/TLS on port 465.

@msuk all is not lost, but it does require using a workaround using a program called Stunnel to listen for connections on port 1025 outbound and then forward the connection to smtp.virginmedia.com port 465 SSL/TLS.  You then set the outbound connector to connect to localhost port 1025 with with your Virgin Media username and password.
