I need to setup a connector in exchange in order to send email to aol, etc.   I would like to know if anybody has had luck using google's smtp server.   Our ISP is AT&T and I plan to have them setup a PTR record, but until then, I would like to use a connector.

it depends on the version of exchange you are using
exchange 2003 will route outbound messages automatically
exchange 2007 and 2010 require a new send connector under the organization configuration, hub transport

What version of exchange are you using ?

Why are you trying to do this in the first place @ separate connector for aol

You can't route all emails through google smtp without a google apps account

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Exchange 2003.

AOL is bouncing back on emails because we do not have a PTR record.   We're working with AT&T on this, but they're slow.    How big of deal is setting up and google apps account?

You have to call ATT and sit in their tech queue and "hold for the next available agent" :)
If its just PTR i'd stick with the ATT thing.

google apps is paid. I'd say if you are using your own exchange server, you dont need that.

AT&T did setup the pointer records.  All I had to do was add their name servers to our godaddy account.
