Experts,

I have just finished installing exchange 2010 on a Windows 2008 R2 server.
This is an "all in one box".  This will be a standalone server that will need to handle the internet email that come to my office.

I can't seem to remember how to connect it to the internet, I know that I need to enable somewhere the "anonymous" access in order to send traffic to the internet.  

Any guidance on how to send traffic to the internet will be appreciated.

Thank you

on your router, you need to manage ports.  And allow access for TCP via the ports your using (depends on the services you are allowing, Exchange (443?), IMAP, POP3, etc...)
you need to give smpt inbound/outbound access to this server using your firewall . also DNS should be available for domain name resolving .

You also need to configure proper send and receive connectors. other wise it won't do anything.

Look firstly to receive emails form internet you need to check "Anonymous users" in the Permissions tab on the Receive connector :)

For sending email to Internet you need to create a send connector and restart the Transport service once

Best regards!

Rancy,

I Appreciate your time and help.  Do I need to create a new "Receive connector" or do I just need enable anonymous on the "Default" Connector?
