Cause

This behaviour can occur due tothe Appliance not being able to reach the right downstream server to deliver the Notifications

In the logs you can see the host: mail.domain.com, port: 25 and these do not reflect the name/ip and port of the downstream mail server

Resolution

Log into the Control Center GUI :

  1. Click "Administration"
  2. Click "Control Center"
  3. Select tab "SMTP"
  4. Select "Define a new host"
  5. insert HOST and PORT for the downstream mail server
