SMTP connection

I have an alarm device that when I get an alarming condition it will send me an email alert. It was working fine with Exchange server 2000 but since I installed Exchange 2007 it does not work. The only change I made was the server name for the new exchange server. Any help at getting this working would be appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just a couple of things you need to check
1. Make sure the alarm device is configured to use the right Exchange server (you mentioned you changed the Exchange server's name, you may need to change the setting in your alarm device).
2. Make sure your Exchange is configure to allow relay from that device (either by IP address, or through an authenticated account).

I did change the server name on the device, but I'm not sure how tho setup exchange to relay from this devices. I am using my authentication to send the message, so that did not change.
In your System Manger -> Administrative Group -> Servers -> Protocol -> right click the "default SMTP Virtual Server" -> Properties -> Access tab -> Relay, what is your settings there?

In Exchange 2007 I have Exchange management Console, I do not have System manager. I think what I am looking for is in connectors. Not sure if it is a receive connector or send connector. So I'm not sure what to look for. unless I am missing the boat somewhere.
