We have, somewhat, successfully, deployed Exchange Server 2007 SP1 in our environment.
Our Exchange Server has multiple IPv4 addresses assigned to it and we wanted to know how to configure SMTP to use a specific IP address to for eMails sent out to the World/Internet?

Is this possbile? I have been looking on the technet site and have not found anything as of yet.

you can simple make the send connector and send

incase that did not work then make sure that the IP that should send the Email is placed in the First IP in the IP list in the TCP/IP config

Housammuhanna,

 I do not see how the first can be done, configuring the connector to use a specific IP address.

   Do you mean to go into Exchange management Console|Organization Configuration|
   Hub Transport|Address Space

and rather than specifying "*" for the address space, use the IP address that I want eMail to go out on?

I tried listing the IP address I wanted used for sending eMail as the first IP in the network configuration, but the server sent the eMail out using a different IP address.

Do you have any other ideas?

Set-SendConnector <name of Connector> -SourceIPAddress <IP Address>

This will only work on an EdgeTransport Server (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa998012.aspx).
