Exchange 2007 and Scanner settings for scanning to email on Server 2008

Hi all,

I'm stuck with setting up my "HP Color LaserJet CM2320fxi MFP" to scan to email on my SBS 2008.

The MFP's STMP server is set to myserver.mydomain.local on 25, but I'm not sure what, if anything, needs to be done in exchange to let this happen... I don't know where to start!

Thanks,

Warren

Well the Scanner will need to autheticate with the SMTP assuming client authentication is enabled on the exchange server (with it should be 99% of the time).

Does the scanner have an option for configuring the SMTP security or authentication? It will probably be using windows authetication if so, so you will need to setup an account with a username and password within active directory. Something like

username: scanner
password: whateveryoulike

These settings will need to be applied to the scanners SMTP security/authentication page.

greetings. If i remember correctly the cm2320 has no smtp authentication, so the "smtp barn door has to be wide open" :), or you might want to use scan-to-folder or buy the next higher color multifunction product in the line which can do smtp authentication (CM3530mfp).

cheers

Correct. So with my lack of knowledge, how does one open this barn door? I mean, can Exchange accept internal anonymous mail like this?

The answer in my case is:

What marcustech said, but with CyberLex's comment also being true.

Both experts prompted me to search for something like this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb232021.aspx

It solved my problem.
