I need to now how to configure exchange 2007 to allow email in from a different domain that uses sendmail. When I send mail from sweye.com (sendmail) domain to the exchange domain exchange.sweye.com I get the message in my sendmail que connection refused by exchange.sweye.com. I believe I have setup a recieve connector correctly pointing to sweye.com. Is it my active directory domain denying the incoming mail or is it the exchange server?

Configure your receive connectors to enable anonymous access. Otherwise, you won't be able to receive emails from outside. You can even create a new connector with the internet scope for the same.

Make sure on your receive connector (Exchange 2007) that you have configured it for Anonymous and only to accept email from the IP address of the SendMail server.  Optionally, you may configure SendMail, if it supports it, to provide a username/password on connection and the receive connection to require Basic authentication.

Receive connectos are in server config -> hub transport. Anyway the default connectors are to be retained. Edit it with anonymous access or create a new one with accepting emails option from your sendmail server.

Yes. You may keep both the Client and Default receive connectors. Client receive connector will be used for POP/IMAP clients. Default will be used for SMTP.

Do I need to restart any services after making changes to the receive connector?
