Information for Residents
Virtual Campus Graz
SMTP Server (outgoing)VCG users can set the server mail.vc-graz.ac.at with authentication as outgoing email server (SMTP).
The email server filters viruses and uses (incoming) spam lists. Other SMTP servers cannot be reached via port 25 (the reason is that "modern" mail worms have their own SMTP server, through which they could then spread viruses and spam undisturbed).
Other SMTP ServersIf the provider (e.g. your university) allows a secure SMTP connection via port 587 or 465, then (as long as no abuse is known to us) this is also possible from VCG.
The SMTP servers of Graz University of Technology offer both protocols mentioned above.
Operation of (Dorm) Email Servers
Incoming Email ServerThe MX record must point to mail.vc-graz.ac.at, which forwards mails only to registered domains/servers, i.e.: If you want to run your own (dorm) mail server, you have to apply for it (with justification).
Relay ServerThe server mail.vc-graz.ac.at must be registered as a relay server ("smart host") or an authenticated connection via port 465 or 587 must be established.
