how to let user on remote system use Exchange for SMTP
Posted on 2013-02-02
A vendor installed a new VOIP phone system in our office. He has asked me to provide an email account and SMTP settings for sending email and voice mail attachments to the office. We have a SBS 2008 server fir our office domain controller and that server runs Exchange for our self hosted email. I'll have to confess that I've never set up an email account for a non-domain user, nor do I even know if this is possible. I've set up aliases and forwards, and I've even setup a LAN Linux server to permit relaying through the Exchange server. Apparently, he wants to use the office Exchange server as the VOIPs system email server. I think the target for all those emails will be users on the office domain, so I don't think he wants a relay.
Does someone understand what he wants and how to set it up, or do I need more information?
