Question on configuring IIS Default SMTP Virtual Server Smart Host
Posted on 2007-10-19
I have a general question on configuring the IIS Default SMTP Virtual Server. My question is spcifically in the following area:
Go to IIS, Select SMTP Default Virtual Server, Right Click and go to Properties, Click on the Delivery Tab, and then click on advanced.
Here are the questions - In the fully-qualified comain name field we have entered our domain name:
1) Do we have to use a Smart host?
2) If we use a smart host does the smart host ip address have to be that of the domain name entered above - or is this a conflict?
3) If we use a msart host then does that have to be a host of ip other than our domain from which our emails are going out?
PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS IF YOU ARE GUESSING - I NEED ADVICE FROM SOMEONE WHO KNOW THIS AREA INSIDE OUT.
