Configuring Sharepoint 2007 Incoming Email With Exchange 2003

Is there some additional configuration required to get Exchange 2003 to send email messages to a Sharepoint 2007 server?

We have a Sharepoint 2007 (HOU03) server and an Exchange 2003 (HOU02) server (separate machines).  We've followed the instructions to configure Sharepoint to receive incoming email messages.  However, our Exchange server continues to send the email messages addressed to sharepointtest@hou03.local.ourdomain.com out through the internet.  It appears that the Exchange server does not know how/where to send these messages.  Thus, they never show up in our Document Library on the Sharepoint server.

Can anyone offer some help on this issue?

Hi Lisa,

You have a couple of options here.

Perhaps the easiest is to add an SMTP Connector with the Address Space of hou03.local.ourdomain.com and point that at your Sharepoint Server (I assume that's running an SMTP Service and able to take it in)?

Rather than me give you lots of text based directions, there's an article here that explains exactly how and where to add the connector in case you're not already familiar with that:

http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Configuring-SMTP-Connector.html

The only difference is that you want to select "Forward all mail through the connector to the following smart host", then enter in the IP Address or name of your server. If entering the IP Address it must be in square brackets (e.g. [192.168.1.1]), names are just entered as normal.

The Address Space in the picture shows Contoso.com, that's where you would want hou03.local.ourdomain.com. It tells Exchange to send mail for that domain to a specific server.

I hope that's all clear, if not just yell :)

HTH

Okay, I have done that.  Now, I am not getting the NDRs, but the messages are not being delivered to the Sharepoint Site's Shared Documents Library.  Shouldn't I see them listed there?

I have enabled Message Tracking on my Exchange server.  According to the Message Tracking Center, the messages are being delivered to the Sharepoint server via SMTP, but I am still not seeing them in the Shared Documents Library.

Wish Marketing would stop bothering you?

Is your marketing department constantly asking for new email signature updates? Are they requesting a different design for every department? Do they need yet another banner added? Don’t let it get you down! There is an easy way to manage all of these requests...
