I tried to change the smtp server in Central Administration, but the change wasn't accepted. When I ran a console app to view the SPWebApplication outbound mail service instance, it still pointed to an old server. I've tried using stsadm to force the change, but to no avail. A MSDN article stated that PowerShell cannot be used to set the smtp server.
Is there any way to force SharePoint to accept a new smtp server? Can one do this via c#? I can change this via stsadm and the browser on my test server, just not on this one production server.
Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
