SMTP Connector On Exchange 2010 Not Working

Hello,

I am trying to get an SMTP connector working for all my external email but when I set it up nothing gets sent.

I simply go to create a new connector, select custom, put in my external mail server's FQDN, and set the authentication to basic and provide the login information. I don't know why this isn't working since I know the SMTP information I am providing is correct.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Is there a log somewhere I can look at to see what error Exchange is getting from my mail server (if any)?

Thanks

The Send Connector configuration is like this.

1. Address Tab ->SMTP = *
2. Netwrok Tab -> Route to Smart Host/DNS
3. Source server Tab -> Hub Transport server

Please verify your settings

I noticed that if I use the IP of the server instead of the FQDN mail does send again. But the mail headers show the email comming from the actual exchange server, not the externall SMTP server.

You are creating a send connector or receive connector...?
