    1. This has to do with your email server. First, it says that “No aunauthenticated”, so try providing a username and password for the email server in your Maximo system propteries. Second, ask your email administrator and see if your email server is setup to allow SMTP relaying from trusted local internal IP addresses.

      1. can you please tell me which properties these are
        means i just saw these properties related to email
        mail.smtp.host
        mxe.adminEmail
        mxe.email.charset
        mxe.int.adminfromemail
        mxe.int.admintoemail
        mxe.lsnr.validateperson

        in which i did set mail.smtp.host and mxe.adminemail, what other should i set

        1. I believe Maximo 7.1.1.6 allows you to set the username and password for the SMTP server, but there isn’t any setting for and version prior. I am not completely sure if we can set the username and password.

  2. Hi chon,
    Can We use any server other than IBM Lotus Domino 8.5 for email listener purpose?
    If yes, Tell How can we configure with maximo?

  3. Is there any method to secure the listener? Specifically, if I were to provide the xml that is needed to create an incident/sr to someone, who in turn sent it to 20 people for use, is there any way to control who the email listener accepts emails from? Hope that makes some sense.
