Hi all,
hopefully a simple question, I get server monitoring emails from my clients.  The incoming email address is something like administrator@localdomain.local.  My ISP treats all of these as spam (apparently becuase they are .local) so I want to change the incoming address to somthing else, how do I do this.

Please note that exchange is not installed these server, SMTP is setup (and working) in IIS only.

Thanks is advance,
Ed.

Well, not having Exchange on your server is why you are getting it from that address.  You probably haven't installed Service Pack 1 on your server as well, because that requires Exchange to be installed.  So, while I can try to give you instructions on how to set the domain name in the SMTP service, I must warn you that SBS is heavily reliant on Exchange, and not installing it renders many of it's features useless.  Plus, you are unable to install any service packs which are vital to the health and security of the server.

I've never worked with an SBS that doesn't have Exchange installed, I can only make a couple of guesses as to how this would work.

1.  You can try to run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW -- which is linked as Connect to the Internet in the Server Management Console > Internet and Email) and specify the Email domain name, but I'm not sure if this will actually have that screen without Exchange installed.

2.  When Exchange is not installed on a standard Server 2003, you have the option to add a Default SMTP Virtual Server in the IIS Manager.  To add an SMTP Virtual Server, open IIS Management and right click on the Server > New... > Add SMTP Virtual Server.  You can then give it any domain name you like.

If you already have an smtp virtual server there, then just add the domain to that server.
