SBS 2008 Setting up SMTP settings and static IP Canon iSend

I am adding my Canon Copier irc2620 to my SBS 2008 network. I have created an account in SBS 2008 for the copier and I need to know my SMTP address in order for the copier to be able to send PDFs.

1) What would my SMTP mail server name be?

2) Can I assign a static ip to the copier on my local network. (currently the SBS box is providing DHCP)?

you can type the IP address of your SBS server for the SMTP or the DNS name of your sbs server as the smtp server address.

yes you can assign a static IP or you can exclude the copier's ip address from the dhcp distribution.

The copier should have a static IP, or a DHCP reservation. Also, assign a hostname in DNS. This will prevent any printing  issues caused by  dynamic DNS updates and DHCP. I always reserver 10 or so addresses at the bottom of the range for static IPs.
SMTP setings would be the IP address or internal hostname of the SBS server and use the copier's account credentials to make a secure connection.
