. Note: 1. Here <host> describes the name of the host to which the incoming mails are addressed.. 3-In case of multiple clients.. a virtual host has to be created for each of these clients. This parameter defines a virtual mail host for receiving mails. In my example I have used *:25000 here * is used because I want the mails to be sent independently of the host being addressed and 25000 is the value of PORT.<port>.This parameter is not required If one single client of the SAP system is receiving and processing all incoming mails). .. 2-Default value for this parameter is/SMTP/virt_host_0 = *:*. <port> describes the number of the port to which the incoming mails are addressed.B) is/SMTP/virt_host_<*> = <host>:<port>.
