Can I locate SMTP for my ISP on SBS?
Posted on 2007-11-29
OK, I asked this question on TechNet, and no matter how many times I describe what I am asking, I confuse them. It is a rather ridiculous question, and I think they are being way too technical.
Basically, all I trying to do is try to locate my SMTP address that I use for my ISP, Road Runner. I am trying to recall it, because I forgot exactly what it was. I should have written it down. I could call Road Runner, but I thought this would be quicker. Exchange Server makes it much more difficult for me to find compared with my settings at home. At home, I could simply open Outlook and go to Tools and Accounts and see the POP3 and SMTP addresses, i.e. mail.tds.net and smtp.tds.net.
When I first set up the SBS, it asked (I think when first running CEICW, but maybe somewhere else) what my POP3 and SMTP settings were. I typed in smtp.rr.maine.com OR it may have been smtp.maine.rr.com. Now, I could try them both in the Backup program where it is needed to see which one works, but I am curious now if it is documented somewhere it SBS. I would think it would be somewhere as I would still think Exchange would need to know the SMTP of my server in order to send mail. Well, there, I have probably confused everyone again.
