    It isn't clear what you want to do.
    What do you mean by "setup my exchange server as a relay (from an ISP)"

    You need to explain more about what you are trying to do.

      Re: configure exchange server 2003 to send/receive internet mail

      hey
      I need to be able to send and receive emails through internet (not only locally inside the company).
      so the server must be set as a relay and the ISP will be forwarding the emails to my exchange server.
      for a test purpose i need to put the hotmail domain (hotmail.com) as a smart host
      (instead of the ISP)
      How can I accomplish this task?

      please help!!!!!!!

        your server should be set up to use your ISP as a relay, not the other way around

          You will not be setting your server as a relay. You may want to send email via your ISPs server - if you are going to do then use an SMTP Connector. http://exchange.sembee.info/2003/smt...-connector.asp

          Hotmail do not provide smart host or external SMTP services, so if you want to test outbound email then you will have to send email via your ISPs SMTP server.

            as I understand, because my mail server does not have a real IP, I have to have a smart host to foward all the emails to it. in my case this is the SMTP server of the ISP, RIGHT??
            So I should use an SMTP connector for outbound emails
            do I need to use a connector for inbound?

            thanks

              SMTP Connectors are for outbound email only. They have nothing to do with inbound email.
              If the server has a dynamic IP address then you are going to have problems receiving email on it. You will need to use a dynamic DNS server. I have discussed how to use a dynamic DNS service with Exchange here:

                The company has one real IP address, but the exchange doesn't
                we've have assigned for it a local address.
                it doesn't need a dynamic IP , so no need for dynamic DNS.
                right?
                to be able to send/receive emails through internet what configuration do we need ?
                ISP,smtp connector,smart host,smtp,....

                  To receive email from the internet the server needs to have an external IP address. That can either be a static address or a dynamic address. If it does not have its own IP address or at least port 25 forwarded to it then it cannot receive email from the internet.

                  As for your other questions I believe I have already answered them.
