RE: [FW1] Secure SMTP Server - 501 Syntax Error

You're problem is the syntax of the command.  Most new mail servers use:
mail from:<spam@spammer.com>
(note the brackets)
If you need support for mail without the brackets, then add the following
line to the :props section in objects.C:
smtp_rfc822 (false)
As per Page WI-123 of the 4.0 manuals

Subject: [FW1] Secure SMTP Server - 501 Syntax Error



Hi,
I'm trying to use our FW-1 V.4 as an SMTP-Relay to
store and forward mail to our internal MailServer.

When I'm setting up an policy with only SMTP,
without an SMPT-Ressource, enabled like that:
<external-mailserver> <internalmailserver> <smpt> <accept> ....
I had no problems to connect from outside to inside on port 25
and set up some SMTP commands like
helo
mail from:my@external.mail.adress.de
rcpt to:my@internal.mail.adress.de

While we're running really unsecure, spammer loved, old sendmails
inside I want to setup this relaying Mail-Gateway.

But when I setup an object "SMTP with Resource" to store and forward
the eMail on the FW-1, I got an Syntax Error Message when I type the
command: mail to:myuserid@my.external.mailserver.name
501 Syntax error

Does anybody have a sollution for my problem.
I'm searching for it in phoneboy's FAQ's
and Checkpoints Administrators Guide

Does anyone use FW-1 the way I try to do ?
Using FW-1 V.4 and SMTP Secure-Server as Mail-Relay
(without CVP and anti virus server)


Thank you for your help,
Peter Guenther
