I have a single Exchange 2000 front-end server and a single back-end server. The front-end Default SMTP Virtual Server has been configured to forward messages to a smart host. I am having problems with messages sitting in the queue(retry connection state). I would like to configure an SMTP Connector to forward all inbound messagesl to the smarthost and remove the smarthost configuration from the Default VS.
I have created the SMTP Connector as follows:
Forward all mail to smarthost [IP]
Local Bridgehead is back-end server
Address Space Type: SMTP
Address: Local domain
Outbound Security: Anonymous
The mail is still coming in through the Default SMTP Virtual Server instead of the SMTP Connector. Why is it not using the connector?
