We do not use our current SBS 2000 box to host any websites. Infact we do that on a linux box hosted remotely. This linux box also acts as an email gateway for our domains.
We do use Exchange internally for local mail, and then have previously used the SBS SMTP connector to send mail or through the linux SMTP server if we had a problematic ISP we were mailing that was failing because of the missing PTR record (from an internet DNS point of view nothing points from our domains to our SBS box). We then used the POP3 connector to fetch mail from the linux box to our SBS box.
I want to replicate this, but have never touched SBS 2008, and will be setting it up shortly. Can this sort of setup still work ? Would I be right in saying that this sort of SMTP setup is the SMTP Smarthost which I should be able to configure through the wizards ?
Is there anything that we are forgoing by implementing this sort of setup ? other than having to access the server for remote workplace etc. by IP rather than domain name ?
