Need SMTP connector?

Posted on 2013-06-11

We have a new SBS2011 domain which includes Exchange 2010. We have a network scanner which needs to be configured to email scanned documents to both internal and external users. I created a user for the scanner and I attempted to setup the printer to use the exchange server to send out the emails. So far it has not worked. The scanner settings include configurations to use SMTP which I have pointed to our server. Since this is not working I assume I have to setup something on the server to receive the traffic (SMTP connector?)

Any ideas on what needs to be done? Thanks

I never was able to get this to work. I kept getting errors related to unknown user or errors related to an unauthorized machine. I tried every iteration of the settings I could think of but nothing worked. I finally used an offsite email account to accomplish the task. There must be some other setting in Exchange that was over riding the open connector settings I was using.
