I am running Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 on a Windows Server 2003 box. I would like to make use of the Pickup directory to send outgoing e-mail, but I don't know where to find the configurations settings for this directory.

I found a reference that says the following about the configuration in Exchange 2007, but it doesn't apply to 2003:

""You use the Set-TransportServer cmdlet for all Pickup directory configuration tasks. You use this cmdlet to make the following pickup directory configuration changes:
Enable or disable the Pickup directory.
Specify the location of the Pickup directory.
Specify a maximum header size for a message file that is accepted by the Pickup directory.
Specify a maximum number of recipients in a message file that is accepted by the Pickup directory.
Specify a maximum rate for message file processing in messages per minute.""

Where do I go to configure the options for the Pickup directory in Exchange Server 2003?

The default location for the pickup directory is this:
C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\Pickup

As for configuration settings - there are none that I am aware of. It is part of the SMTP virtual server, so comes under those configuration settings. If you want to use different settings you would have to create a second SMTP virtual server in ESM.

Exchange 2007 uses a completely different model for the email transport, which is why you see the settings in a different way.

Thanks--There are so many things that pertain to all the different versions of Exchange, I wasn't sure if this was one of them. Apparently not!
