A developer has asked me to get him the settings for sending mail via our exchange server. There is a portal that the developers created and they want the external user to get an email from our email server once they upload info.

We have an 2003 SBS server (with exchange 2003).

The developer is looking for the following information. I am not fully sure on what I am looking for here. Any ideas where exactly I get the following info ???

'host'          
'port'          
'ssl'            Mostly 'tls', please specify if any other

I wouldn't recommend using your server for a developers platform.  It can greatly increase the risk of you being put on blacklists.

I suggest that you ask him to use a public mail server from his server provider.

Hi

There are 2 ways, internally or externally.

Internally, it is       hostname.domain  then depend on the protocol.
If SMTP port 25, if IMAP 143 (here he needs username, password)

Externally it should be something like   http(s)://external.domainname/owa (also need credentials)
Here i assume you  have blocked port SMTP from relaying from external. (which is good)

You need to know, is this application internally for your domain? Then i would add a A record to DNS called   SMTP and i would enter the ip adress for the domain controller and tell the developer to send his mail to    SMTP
(yes, just SMTP)

The easiest way would be to ask the administrator of the server. Ideally you need a new username and complex password setting up.

Are you the administrator?

Since it is 2003, they can just send SMTP traffic to the server's IP. You may need to allow the IP of the sending server in the Access tab/Connections for the Default SMTP Server in Exchange.
