I'm having difficulty getting the local SMTP server to work for me in conjuction with Outlook 2000. It had it working fine at one point, then I installed Norton Internet Security and now it doesn't seem to work, even if I disable NIS. The NIS install may of course be unrelated and just a coincidence.

The mail seems to get sent and no error message is displayed, although on checking the target mailbox (an internet mail account), no mail arrives. I've made sure the target mail account works by sending from another internet mail account and there are no problems there.

I can see all the test messages which I am trying to send sitting under the folder <pre>C:inetpubmailrootqueue</pre>

I've tried playing around with the SMTP server settings and Outlook account settings with no success.
