I have a Windows 2008 Web Edition server hosting multiple websites using IIS 7.5. At the moment, all the emails are sent via the IIS6 SMTP service. The FQDN of the SMTP service is set to the computer name at the moment which isn't correct as it doesn't resolve to a valid DNS entry and is not RFC compliant.
- Is there any way I can change the FQDN of the SMTP service based on the site sending the email?
- Would it be Ok to just setup
mailserver.mydomain.comand use that as the FQDN for all the sites on multiple domains.
- Should I be using some other mail server software to handle this better?
The reason I am asking is lots of emails are hitting spam folders because the settings are incorrect.
I have access to the code that is running the websites so if something needs to be done there then that shouldn't be a problem. The sites are written using ASP.NET 2.0.
EDIT: I have just found an option to create an SMTP virtual service. Would this be the way forward? Create a virtual server for each site?
