Coldfusion 8 Mail Server Settings

371 Views
Last Modified: 2013-12-24
We have just moved from SMTP/Pop3 mail to Exchange 2007.  Our Coldfusion 8 mail server settings were pointing at our old SMTP server.  Now that we're with Exchange, coldfusion is not able to send mail as we have discontinued our vendor hosted SMTP/Pop3 service.

My question is:  How do we configure Coldfusion 8 to send mail via Exchange 2007?  Can this be done?  If not, would I have to setup my Exchange server as SMTP too?  How?

I've not played with it yet but there's a pretty good article on the cfexchange tag here

Thanks SidFishes.  Unfortunately, it does not show me how to set coldfusion at the admin panel to route emails through exchange.  Under Mail Server Setup.
Any more ideas?

Let me rephrase:
On the Coldfusion 8 Administration Panel, when we attempt to verify the connection to our Exchange 2007 server, verification fails.  I have tried domain\username, username, domain\servername, servername.domain.com and nothing seems to validate the SMTP connection.
This is a SMTP connection, is it supposed to work on Exchange 2007?
Any ideas?
