OK, it's late, I'm tired, so I'll try to get this explained as best as possible.

I set up KMS 5.7.9 on a customers NT4 server. They are a very small company, so they use Comcast residential cable for their provider. They previously used Ipswitch IMail Server as the mail server, but pricing, etc.

Comcast has a policy where if you are on their residential block (read as, dial up block) you cannot send mail to comcast.net from without relaying it through smtp.comcast.net. Also, AOL has the Comcast residential block denied as well. My client desperately needs to send to these domains, however, is unable to because of the restrictions.

In IMail, you can specify that if an outgoing message fails 'x' number of times, try sending through a gateway server, and this was working great for them. They do not want to relay all mail through smtp.comcast.net because to be honest, it violates the TOS for Comcast residential to run a mail server.

Now that I hope that is explained well enough, here's what I want to do. I want either an outbound rule saying if the to address is *<at>comcast.net !OR! *<at>aol.com send through smtp.comcast.net. Or I want to specify a gateway to use on outbound failure. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has ever ran across this situation, and I am new to KMS, so I'm looking here for some insight.

I can be contacted directly at hjones<at>hnwcomputers.com or here on the forum.

Thanks in advance, hope I haven't confused everyone entirely.

Miro, you are the man. I've been fighting with this for days, and tech
support gave me the "You can't do that" answer, so I know better than to
call them back. That's why I love forums like these, thanks a lot again.
