Total Access Emailer is the world's most popular Microsoft Access email add-in product and VBA code library. Simplify the way you communicate with your contacts, and easily share the data and reports from your Microsoft Access databases with personalized emails for each recipient.
How do I change the email address Total Access Emailer uses to test SMTP relay?
Note that this is no longer an issue in the new Total Access Emailer 2022 for Access 365/2021, and X.81 versions for earlier Access versions. See New Features for details.
To ensure that your mail server is configured properly and Relay is enabled, Total Access Emailer sends a test message to a known email address at FMS (email@example.com). Your network or mail server security may not like this and\or produce "SMTP Protocol Error 550".
Fortunately, Total Access Emailer allows you to customize this email address:
- Create an ASCII text file called Temail.txt containing the name of the email address you would like to use.
- Put the file in the folder where Total Access Emailer is installed (or the location of the Total Access Emailer runtime library, as described here).
Total Access Emailer will now use your email address for the Relay test. This must be a valid email address and Relay must be enabled on your mail server for this test to succeed.
