We have a client that is running exchange 2003 SP2 which uses the built-in in pop3 connector to download emails from an ISP. Incoming emails are not sent directly to the server. I need to setup the exchange server to route emails thru a smart host, I have talked with the ISP and they have given me a username and password and a port to connect to the SMTP server to relay emails. How do I setup exchange to use this different port and username/password to send emails thru this smarthost?

This is rather urgent.

On smtp virtual server,click on delivery tab.
outbound connections,change the port number from 25 to watever u want
Click on outbound security,click on basic authentication and put the username and password.
Provided there is only one exchange server.

Hi Rammestein,

That appears to be working great thanks!, is there any way to check that it is routing thru the smart host?
