Sorry if this is a stupid question, but our office set up an Axis 70U Scan server (http://www.axis.com/products/axis_70u/).  We run Exchange 5.5 and I'm trying to set it up to send mail, but I think the SMTP/IMAP is causing problems, as the specifications say nothing about IMAP/Exchange.

Would it be possible to use an SMTP Connector? (I understand it's called something different in 5.5).  Under what conditions would this product actually work?  (It's supposed to scan and email the document to a pre-programmed email address)

Again, sorry for the dumb question.  I've done a ton of searching but I'm a little unexperienced with Exchange administration.  Any pointers you could give me would be great.  Thanks

Have you seen this?:

Also, if exchange is too daunting for your puposes it may be easier to set up an SMTP server either through IIS or download a third party one, then just have it forward mail to your exchange server.

Thanks for the reply.  I will look into both of those over the next couple days.

Is the above an accurate description of how I would do this?  Just uncheck allow incoming mail, and set the "Forward all mail to smart host" to the ip of our exchange server?  The box doesn't need to receive anything, it just needs to be able to send to addresses on our domain.
