    This error message comes when a wrong SMTP address is provided. Confirm about the smtp address of the mail server and also check with the admin to see if it requires authentication to connect to the server.

    Get SAP Basis help in it.

    • Hi,

      When XI receives mail, using mail sender adapter, then it is same as any other message for XI. So no additional configuration is required.

      When XI sends mail, using mail receiver adapter, u have to provide the smtp server address to be used to send the mail. This smtp server may not be necessarily XI system and usually an external mail server is used. So here also, no additional config is reqd

      The SCOT config at XI is required only in case of Alerts, wherein it is purely responsibilty of XI to send mail

    choose configure user authentication and provide correct user and password details.

    you can see these details

    go to Menu bar in your outlook.Select tools-- >email Account ->change--logon information

    provide the same username and password while configuring the mail adapter

      Any system which communicates with XI should be know to XI. Is it like....it has to be declared somewhere or some basis activity required?

      Should i get in touch of admin who might connect XI and mail server?
