Using PHP in an intranet with MS Exchange Server 2003

We just set up an Ubuntu workstation and are testing apache so that we can use PHP to send mail from forms on our local intranet.  I would like these messages to run through our Exchange 2003 server.

We've tried various entries in the php.ini file to point by IP address back to the exchange server using port 143 (but it looks like I can only do that in the Win32 version of PHP)

Do I have to install sendmail on this machine?

Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

On the PHP forms, do I put the mailto address as my domain alias from exchange? Here the alias is first initial last name. So in the PHP form I should put jsmith@mailserver.domainname.local ?

We gave up on sendmail and are trying postfix now.

Is there anything I need to do on the Exchange server to accept relayed mail from the linux box?
