I have been trying (too) many ways of getting SMTP under the system settings to work, but it seems that SolidCP is still not able to send out mail. I keep getting the red block with the following message:

System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: Server was unable to process request. —> The specified string is not in the form required for an e-mail address.

I have tried to enter my SMTP settings from the provider (Amazon AWS) but I suspect that does not work because the only available option in SolidCP setting is SSL and they use TLS. Then I tried setting up IIS 6.0 manager and SMTP virtual Server to relay messages according to instructions here:


Even with the local server as the SMTP relay it still does not work. This is the setting that SolidCP uses to send out mail to customers, correct? Am I missing something?
