My New Azure Windows Server 2012 R2 is not receiving emails from Internet that need to be read from mail drop folder by my ASP.NET app.
My Email Domain provider is Yahoo.
I changed Yahoo email MX and A Record to my VM Public virtual IP (VIP) address
I send an email to my domain.
Nothing shows up in incoming SNMP folder: C:\inetpub\mailroot\Drop\

It might be worth checking the firewalls on the Azure VM to allow port 25. Also, can you post your sending mail code, just to be safe.
Personally, I have used SendGrid for handling all of my mail needs. We have an application that handles around 10K emails a month with no issue.
Have a look at these articles:
Hope this helps.

First off, I want to just make it work with my existing ASP.NET code without getting into SendGrid. For eventual (hopefully) heavy traffic, SendGrid looks great.
But, is it even possible on Azure Windows 2012 to receive incoming email to: C:\inetpub\mailroot\Drop\
When I send from external Internet (like Hotmail.com), nothing arrives.
I've checked Azure Windows Firewall and SMTP 25 is open.
On my Azure Windows VM PowerShell I try telnet localhost 25
but get error: "...Could not open connection to the host, on port 25: Connect failed"

Please can you post your mail sending code.

I need a VisualBasic example on how to send email using SendGrid.
I gave up on trying the old way (using local SMTP server) because Azure IP gets rejected by Internet email servers, such as Hotmail.
SendGrid is obviously a better solution for scalability, etc.

I needed to add END POINT to my Azure VM, and I needed to set Admin Tools > Services > SMTP to START or AUTO START.
But the email goes into c:\inetput\mailroot\Queue\ instead of pickup\
