I am trying to get SharePoint's email features to work with Google Apps (alerts, emails generated by workflows, etc).
Google Apps uses port 587 for smtp and I know that the default smtp port cannot be changed in SharePoint, so I have attempted to set up a new smtp virtual server as an smtp relay. In this, I've enabled TLS, and set the default TCP port to 587.
Under Central Admin -> Operations -> Outgoing Email Settings I already set up the correct configuration - I think:
To test this I'm using a program created by Rodney Viana. This reports "Email has been sent successfully via SharePoint", but I don't receive it.
- Outbound SMTP server - IP address of my smtp server
- From Address - email@example.com
- Reply-to Address - blank
- Character Set - 65001 (Unicode UTF-8)
