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

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.

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.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Same applies.

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.
