    How to configure SMTP Virtual Server for PI Notification

    david@realiv

      Hi, I'm a novice on PI Notification and working on this these days

       

      In my implementation, I was going to send notification email to my @realiv-tech.com, @gmail.com and @126.com emails

       

      while following the instruction, I installed smtp service component into my machine on which Notification was installed. Configured realiv-tech.com domain and finished the configuration in PI Notification add-in in System Explorer.

       

      While in the end, with the help of technical support, I could eventually send notification email to my realiv-tech.com email: kevin@realiv-tech.com

       

      After I added 2 new remote domains: gmail.com and 126.com under default virtual server but I couldn't send email to my these 2 emails

       

      Below is what is showned in IIS smtp configurator(sorry it's not convenient to put snapshots)

       

      Domain Name                                      Type

       

      realiv-tech.com                          Local(Default)

       

      test.com                                   Local(Custom)

       

      gmail.com                                 Remote

       

      126.com                                    Remote

       

       

       

      and I found whatever I changed to realiv-tech.com(change domain name, change smtp port etc), it always worked on sending notification email

       

      but for gmail.com and 126.com, I cannot fix all the time, but got a error like:

       

      --------------------
      Error
      --------------------
      From Primary SMTP server: The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first. k23sm5035155waf.5
      --------------------
      OK
      --------------------

       

      Could anyone give me a brief introduction on this problem? Thanks for any comment.

          @Quan Da Yong: sorry for the delay getting back to you on this... the OSIsoft vCampus program/community is focused around PI programming and intregration questions (e.g. manipulating PI Notifications programmatically, using PI Web Services, etc.)

           

          This is purely a PI System administration/configuration question, and our regular Technical Support team is much better staffed/equipped for this kind of questions. From your original post it seems like you already dealt with tech support on this issue... I would strongly recommend you follow-up with them to work on this issue.

           

          Looking forward to answering your programming/integration questions!
