I have Windows server 2008 r2 box with wss 3.0 installed. I recently activated incoming email. First i installed SMTP Service in my server. After that i went to central admin-->operations-->Topology and Services-->Incoming Email Settings. There i enabled sites in this server to receive email.
Directory Management Service -->NO
Incoming Email Server Displaying Address--> mylist@defaultsmtpserver address
Safe Email Server-->Accept mail from all email servers.
After that i went to shared documents in my web app-->settings-->incoming email settings
Assigned email id to list.
Upon doing this i can post entry to shared documents using my office outlook in same domain.
But when i try to send the email using my hotmail account nothing happens. I dont even get any errors or undelivered error message from my email client.
If anyone have any further ideas about this issue please help!!!.
