I have an Azure VM with:

  • SMTP server installed, started and configured according to the many articles on Internet
  • SP 2013 installed with incoming email enabled on farm level
  • A calendar list with content type Event, allowed to receive incoming email on mylist@vmname.domainname from any sender
  • Azure and VM firewalls setup to allow SMTP-in port 25

If I try to send the list a meeting invite from my personal or work email, of course it does not understand what @vmname.domainname is and it isn't delivered.

My question: How to I enable my VM to receive an email from the external world?
