Configuring Xeams to allow relay from certain machines


In order to send outbound messages you either need to turn on relaying from certain IP addresses or allow SMTP authentication. Click here for more information about SMTP relay.

Following steps demonstrate how to configure relaying in Xeams.
  1. Launch Admin Console.
  2. Click SMTP Configuration under Server Configuration on the main menu.
  3. Click the Relaying tab
  4. Select Closed Relay and specify the IP addresses from which you want to allow relay in the text below below. You can use wild card characters to specify a network range. For example:
    • 192.168.0.78
    • 192.168.1.*     <-- This will allow relay from 255 machines on this network.
  5. Click Save Relay button

Wildcards are being ignored on the SMTP Gateway still as adding 192.168.1.* results in an error: Error - IP address is invalid

Hi there, Is there a way to specify netblocks or subnets with the SMTP Gateway product? I tried the "*" option but the screen gives a message saying "error - ip address is invalid."
