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.

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@

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
