Exchange SMTP sending gmail for domains

We have an Exchange 2k3 server as part of sbs2k3. Our mail provider went under and we decided to use google mail for domains as our new mail host.

The problem is sending mail out through the exchange server. I have the settings in the smtp connector outbound security set to basic authentication and TLS is checked, however any mail that goes out all appears to come from whichever email address is entered as the user in that outbound security tab.

We dont want all 18 users' mail looking like it came from just one address. Any ideas on Exchange settings or a 3rd party app that can handle this?

Thanks in advance.

Any reason you are not using Exchange to send email directly? Or sending the email out through your ISPs SMTP service? Google Mail for domains wants to replace your SBS server, not work with it. Also Exchange is designed for direct SMTP delivery, not for the email to come through another service. You don't need an email provider, you can do that yourself.

Please elaborate when you say "Any reason you are not using Exchange to send email directly? "

Between power outages in the building and internet outages from the ISP, we decided we did not want exchange 100% responsible for the mail.

I will give my ISPs smtp a try.

Power outages are dealt with by a UPS.
Outages caused by the ISP are resolved by using another ISP.
I presume you are collecting email from POP3 mailboxes at whoever provides your email service? There are other solutions than using the POP3 connector. Finding a service that supports ETRN would be one way, or someone who queues your email for you and then pushes it down.

I switched the smtp connector to use my ISPs smtp server and it works.
