I was getting
this same message and I have seen the topic:
which I did.
Now when I try to run the control asp:PasswordRecovery,
I get a message saying
“Your password has been sent to you”
and it would appear that everything worked successfully.
But the email never gets to the sent to the sending email box.
And there are no messsages in my C:\Inetpub\mailroot\Queue
folder nor any of the other mailroot folders.
Any ideas of what is wrong?
Here are my web.config related areas.

Yes, I mentioned that I had seen the link and in there are the requirements to grant 127.0.0.1 access, which I have done.
I'm sure it is something else with SMTP that I also need to do.

Ah...I missed that. Is your site set to run on "Any unassigned IP address"? If not, you'll have to make sure that the IP address the site is on has also been allowed relay permissions by the SMTP service.

I'm testing within VWD on my local PC which runs under XP Pro.
I tried googling about "Any unassigned IP address" so I could try to understand your response but I'm not familiar with what you're saying.
Since I'm running this from localhost, what other IP address do I have to add to the allowed relay permissions?
I'm confused. [*-)]

This was apparently working after applying the IIS changes referred to in link
The actual problem was that I was using a SendTo
“Yahoo” account and I didn’t have my Bulk messages folder activated.
For whatever reason, Yahoo put this message in the Bulk Folder.
After testing with several other email services I found that the password recovery works just fine and puts the message in the Inbox(s).

I am getting this exact error using Exchange server instead of the SMTP server in IIS. Can anybody help?

You are a genius. You just saved my life. I have spent 2 days trying to figure it out. I had "All unasigned" selected and 127.0.0.1 setup as a relay address. It wouldn't work.
After reading your post, I have set it to the server's IP address, and added the IP address in the relay list, and it worked...

I got same issue.
But I am not using localhost as SMTP Server, I am using one of our network SMTP Server.
I fix the problem by simple change Server Computer Name to IP Address.
Don't know why is that, any idea guys?

Here is what you can add in your Web.config, it worked for me.
<smtp from="Email Address you want to send email from">
<network host = "Your Host Name" userName ="emails address" password= "emailaddress password" />

An error message of "Unable to relay..." is usually due to the mail server not accepting the address of the server from where the mail is being sent.

I struggled for hours , read and tried through hundreds of posts and finally this worled for me...
1.) I changed the settings for SMTP server as:
Default SMTP Virtual Server> Properties > Access
Connection>Add> Single Computer 127.0.0.1
Relay>Add> Single Computer 127.0.0.1
2.) Use the IP address of the server where the SMTP is hosted for sending emails.
And you are ready to go...
( Mark this as answer if it helps you)

I have been facing same issue and done the same setting mentioned by you and issue is resolved. Thanks.
I was facing this issue on IIS7 and Windows server 2008. Though site is to be deployed on IIS7 you have to do the following settings in IIS6 Manager.
I have configured SMTP virtual server as follows,
Point to be noted is, you can not do this through IIS7 because it does not have SMTP Virtual Server node as it shows in IIS 6. So open "Administrative Tools" of Windows from Control panel, there you will find both IIS 6 and IIS 7. Open IIS 6 Manager and
do the above mentioned settings of SMTP.
