Relay Linux emails through Exchange to an External Destination

I need to know how to make it so that my Linux system can forward emails through Exchange 2007 to an external destination.  Two strings are: I need to make it so that only this server can do it, so probably using some sort of "no-reply" credentials and secondly these messages have to be journaled by exchange archive; so somehow i need exchange to save these messages flowing through the system (usually this is done by saving to a mbx and then Archive saves the copy).

To setup exchange to allow the relay, use the exchange management console and go under server configuration and then hub transport. From there you will find "Allow Relay" -> right click properties and add the IP address of your linux box.

As for journaling you can find that under Organization Config -> hub transport -> journaling tab. Theres a wizard which takes you through it.

Hope this gets you enough to get going in the right direction.

There is not an "Allow Relay" option anywhere in the "Server Configuration/HUB Transport" area

Configuration Guide and Best Practices

Read the guide to learn how to orchestrate Data ONTAP, create application-consistent backups and enable fast recovery from NetApp storage snapshots. Version 9.5 also contains performance and scalability enhancements to meet the needs of the largest enterprise environments.

If you dont see Allow Relay you can follow gupnit's suggestion or in exchange management console you can create a new receive connector by right clicking and selecting new. The properties of the connector would be something like TLS for authentication + externally secured. For the network section of the connector you would specify the IP of your linux box and for permission groups you could do exchange servers/partners.
