SCOT Problem

Dears,

I confiured SCOT as per note

SAP Note 455140 - Configuration of e-mail, fax, paging or SMS using SMTP

Now when I send any mail I found it for a long time in waiting stage in tcode SCOT and then after 7,8 hours I found it in SOST with error:

13:43:18 Document sent

13:43:18 Wait for communications service

20:46:32 Message cannot be transferred to node SMTP due to connection error (final)

While as per correct procedure it should get transfered to SOST immediately with yellow sign.

Please suggest.

    Check

    - All necessary parameters like icm/server_port_1 are configured

    - Port 25 is open

    1. check SMTP service enabled

    2. check mail server settings in the scot --node.

    3. check telnet mail server at 25 port. it should be open and successfull telnet.

    The good news is that the error message indicates that the issue is likely to be within your control (not firewall, external e-mail etc).

    Can you confirm the following:

    SAPConnect service is configured and active.

    SMTP Node is configured correctly, remembering your Default Host setting (and 'node in use' is ticked!)

    SMTP service is configured and active (correct port, hostname etc).

    The SMTP plugin tries to send the message out to the server you configured. That server doesn't seem to be reachable from your system. Please check that.
