Missing Exchange Connection Information - SBS 2003 Premium

Posted on 2005-04-12
Last Modified: 2011-10-03
I have a Small Business Server 2003 Premium system.
I am using the built-in Exchange Server to handle outgoing/incoming email.

The email configuration was done by someone other than me and I cannot contact him.
I am trying to troubleshoot some outgoing email problems and cannot locate all of the
configuration information SBS/Exchange is currently using.  In particular, I am trying to
locate the value for the {OUTGOING} email which should be "".
I have looked at all the places I think could/should contain this information, but no luck.

Can someone tell me where I can find the setting for outgoing email?
Is there a way to change the email settings/configuration without running the "Connect to Internet" wizard?

Here is some information I think might be helpful:
When I go to }Start/All Programs/Microsoft Exchange/System Manager/Administrative Groups/
...Connectors/SmallBusiness SMTP Connector} and right-click, the following has been
set on the {General} tab:
   "Use DNS to route each address space on this connector"

    Accepted Solution

    An SMTP Connector can be configured one of two ways.

    Either Use DNS or send via a smart host.

    At the moment yours is set to use DNS. If you want to change it, then you need to change the option on the General tab to use a smart host and then enter the name that you want to use.

    The only other place that it might be is on the SMTP Vs itself.

    ESM, Admin Groups, <your admin group>, Servers, <your server>, Protocols, SMTP. Right click on Default SMTP VS and choose Properties. Click on the last tab "Delivery" and then the "Advanced" button. The Smart Host entry should be clear - and use the SMTP Connector instead.
