Open the exchange management console, expand server configuration, click on hub transport, below under receive connectors these are your smtp settings.  Hope that helps

I installed a free utility from Acronis that monitors hard disk and sends alerts when an error is detected.  I want to configure the email alert and it is asking for the SMTP stuff.

I don't think there is no option to set up a account from Acronis side in order to deliver the alert message, so you can set your admin account for it. Otherwise, you can create a virtual outgoing connector from EMS and enable anonymous authentication.

I am entering:

email address: joe@contuso.com
From: joe@contuso.com

outgoing mail server (SMTP): servername.contuso.local
Port 25
User name: joe@contuso.com
Password: the password

Use Encryption is not checked.

I am also trying variations of all the above, starting with changing .com to .local and also trying joe. instead of joe@

In the receive connectors in the exchange management console how many receive connectors do you have and are they enabled. if you right click go to properties on them under network tab you will see use these local ip address to receive mail which port is labeled? (top box)

I finally opened the Exchange window for the user I was trying to list as the "to" and found that user has an alternate name for .local, not same as one I was using. The name in front of the @ was  slightly different.  Once I entered that alternate, it worked
