Verify exchange settings

I have a client who went from using yahoo email to their inhouse SBS 2003 server as the exchange.  

How do I verify if this is actually the case now.  I just need to verify that they are now using the SBS2003 for exchange, but how?

Get them to send a mail then check the headers or try and telnet on port 25 and see if you get an answer from "MS SMTP"...

Hi,

do this from your client

telnet mxRecordOfDomain 25

so when you hit enter you will see something like this

220 hostname.domain.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 5.0.2195.1600 ready at Thu, 30 Nov 2000 18:09:43 -0600

So from SMTP version you can figure out if it's which version of exchange it is. The above one is just an example.

To check an Internet mail's headers, open the mail in Outlook and do tools/view Options on it and you should see the Internet header.

The header will look something like this if it's not stripped by firewalls.

Even telnet will show you same info in terms of version no.
