I am trying to change ISP, using SMTP instead of DNS

I am in middle of changing ISP from BT to Virgin business, but as most of you already know, Virgin doesnt support reverse DNS, so I need to use their smtp.virginmedia.com instead of DNS.

For the life of me, I cant work out where  to change the settings, I remembered years ago when I installed SBS2003, theres a simple option asking for either DNS or SMTP during the installation, but this is now on a 2003 Standard and Exchange 2003 Standard.

Could someone please point me to the right location as to how to change from DNS to SMTP ?
Many thanks

It is either on the Smallbusiness SMTP Connector properties - General tab or if you don't have one (which you should on SBS), the SMTP Virtual Server> Delivery Tab> Advanced Button.

There will either be an SMTP Connector, but not necessarily.  If not, the SMTP Virtual Server Properties> Delivery Tab> Advanced Button allows you to add a Smarthost.

Is there an SMTP Connector configured on your server?  If there isn't - you can create one or change the smarthost on the SMTP Virtual Server.

Hi, thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay, been off work.
Do I need to remove DNS routing when I change to SMTP, if so where would I find that ?
Thanks very much for helping.

With an SMTP Connector - you either use DNS routing or a SmartHost - not both, so if you change from DNS to Smarthost - there is nothing else to do.
