    Hi,

    using smart host option you can configure your exchange to forward email to another host, and if your changing the ISP then you have to wait till its fully syncronized (48Hrs is minimum time to sync with global DNS)or if you have any secondary or backup IP for exchange you can use the same.

      I'm confused by your question. By your thread subject I was going to post this link (http://www.arrowmail.co.uk/howto/smrthost.aspx) about setting up a Smarthost but after re-reading your question i'm not 100% certain that this is what you are asking for. Can you explain further?

        If you want to send email out through another server in your org, then simply configure (or reconfigure) an SMTP Connector with the relevant server as the only bridgehead. Ensure that the scope of the connector is set to Entire Org, rather than routing group. All email sent by the Exchange or will then go through that server.

        If the server you want to use is NOT an Exchange server, then you need to configure the SMTP Connector to use a smart host and then set the smart host as the server you want to route email through.
        Again the closest Exchange server should be used as the bridgehead.
