Email Not Working On K1000 7.1.149

Quick background. We are currently running a K1000 6.4.120756. We decided to spin up a new K1000 7.1.149 with all new queues, etc. Basically so we can start from Ticket 0001. Accept for the layout of the queues, and the DNS and IP Address. Nothing else has changed. We are not able to get Emails to our Support team from the KBOX when a ticket is submitted via the portal. Quest support is telling us stuff like we need an MX Record, we need a different Subnet, we can't have the same ALT Email address for each queue. But all the things they are telling us to fix it working no problem on our current KBOX. The one question they can't answer me is can I have two KBOX's running at the same time?

  • This is a major issue with 7.X and higher. We upgraded from 6.4 and it broke e-mailed responses. They don't know what's wrong and I've been going back and forth with them for a week. It's not an MX record issue, it's a "they broke it and are blaming everything but themselves" issue. - kbigelow80 3 years ago

I fixed the problem myself and when I told Quest how I did it, they seemed shocked.
I had our SMTP Server name as the actual name. I changed it to the IP Address and it works. We've been getting Emails from KACE ever since.

And except for two queues, I have the same ALT EMail address

I have no MX record. It was all the way the SMTP Server name was showing.

Response from Quest was "Sadly as email setups can be verycomplex and changing from company to company we always want to go on WebEx withthe customer to try to understand our customer's setup and be able to solve thesituation, besides that I really want to apologize for not suggesting thatsince the first email."

They got on via Webex and still couldn't solve the problem. Ever since they took over Support has been horrible

Ran into the Same issue, apparently for Office 365, MX records are now needed. (started with 7.0)

As far as I know, every Queue needs to have a unique ALT email address, otherwise... that will confuse the users....? I think.

I guess as long as those 2 kboxes have different IPs, different Names and Webserver names.... it should not matter...
