Sharepoint Notification Emails with External Mail Server on SBS 2008

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am trying to get sharepoint notifications to work, but get nothing, not even the setup email.  I  have an external email host.  We have a newly setup SBS 2008.

I configured SMTP in IIS to point to the external host, as well as sharepoint administration, and setup notifications for my users, but no luck.  I've done many searches on this but find suprisingly little on how to set this up properly.

The first thing I'd like to know is how to determine if Sharepoint is attempting to send messages at all.

Please help.
