Hello

An Exchange 2010 server was just added to an environment containing an Exchange 2003 server.

When I try to add the Smart Host Authentication Settings to a send connector in Exchange 2010, all the radio buttons and fields are unavailable (grayed out).

As i search for answers i can only find information on how to create the connector.

Thanks for your help!

By creating a new outbound connector using the wizard I was able to add the authentication credentials.

The greyed out connector is an Exchange 2003 connector which you cannot modify. As you have found, you need to replace it. The old will need to be deleted from Exchange 2003 ESM to ensure email flow is correct.
