Do this sharepoint farm mail setup have to be on an Exchange server. How do many companies deal with sharepoint farm mail settings. Do they set this up on a different server altogether and provide the IP of that server to the Exchange group or email group. I do not see anything at least from what I can see that states to install on an Exchange server and would like to know how sharepoint experts dealt with this issue?

Hi,

1.
you can use smtp service installed for incoming/outgoing email, but you do need mail gateway to filter spam, dns configuration(mx record, a record).

2.
in addition to the above, you can use relay on your smtp connector to send and recieve emails using external smtp service via smtp relay.

For outbound from SharePoint you can use the SMTP service running on a farm server.  Or, like most companies do, allow a SharePoint farm server to relay from Exchange.

For inbound you must have the SMTP server (IIS) deployed on a farm server.  This is a requirement to get the emails into SharePoint.  You then need to set up a send-connector on your Exchange server to send email destined for your SharePoint domain (email@spservernameFQDN) to the SharePoint server.  Or, you can set up an MX record in DNS (@sp.domain.com) and point it to your SharePoint server.  

You don't have to install SharePoint on an Exchange server or vice versa.

You guys have been outstanding. I think the best way to approach this is to build a SMTP connector and a receive connector and place his IP addresses of the SMTP server he has. That should take care of the inbound and outbound connections.
