Hi Experts
I have a standard SBS 2008 Box using the ISP's SMTP connector to send out mail.
Have added a secondary SMTP connector from "authsmtp" as the client would like to send out bulk mailshots.
Have created a dedicated user with mailbox to send these bulk emails. This user / mailbx is called office.
How do I configure exchange 2007 to always use the the authsmtp smtp connector when e ails are created and sent out from user "office"
All other emails from the 15 staff shoud use the ISP's defualt SMTP connector.

Thanks in advance
Rob

This  is a sure fire way to get your Exchange Server/public IP marked as a spammer and result in emails getting blocked/rejected
If they are going to sent bulk emails..they should use a 3rd party service like Constant Contact.  Its so inexpensive to do that a church which is a customer of mine uses them to send out the church news letter

Hi Cris
We've purchased authsmtp service
http://www.authsmtp.com/
exactly for the requirement to send bulk email. We have configured it on a users desktop about 6 months ago and everything has been fine...our external IP has not been blacklisted as the email routes through authsmtp's mail servers.
But now  the client wants to use their server based CRM software to send out bulk emails. So I have removed authsmtp from the client machine, created the extra SMTP connector and the AD/mail account which will link into the CRM. I just need to kno how to tell that AD/user account always to use the authsmtp connector and not the default connector that the users normally use for everyday email
Thansk in advance.

Ok I've investigated this deeper and the general consensus is that you cannot route one mailbox / user through a SMTP connector...only a domain. so I am closing this call.

Did my own research and read other EE questions to arrive at the conclusion that you cannot route a particular user / mailbox through a SMTP connector....it would have to be a domain.
