  • Use SBS 2008 as smtp for apps

    Hello,

    I run a application on the localhost of the SBS 2008 machine, this program needs to send email to internal and external email users.

    When is try to use the localhost as a smtp user with(or without) smtp authentication it is not working.

    i tried to make a recieve connector but that didn't work.

    anybody an idea?

    This is the procedure to follow:

    Although I tend to suggest using the ISPs server. That means internal email will come straight back in again, but that isn't much of a problem.

      Did you add the smtp server feature from server manager?

        NO NO NO NO NO.

        DO NOT DO THAT. Don't ever recommend someone to do that on an Exchange 2007 based system (Which is what SBS 2008 is). It will break Exchange in more ways that is imaginable.
        That is a very very poor answer.

        It is not required - Exchange 2007 has its own SMTP engine and can do what is required if configured correctly. Nothing else has to be installed on the server.
