SMTP Relay Connector to send mail to external users

I have an appliance that needs to send an email to an address outside the domain.  How do I setup the Exchange 2013 server to accept a request from this appliance and deliver it a mail address outside the domain?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

1) Log in to the Exchange admin center for Exchange 2013 and then go to Mail Flow -> Receive Connectors
2) Add a new receive connector.
3) Type in a name for the connector.
4) Set the Role as Frontend Transport an the Type as Custom
5) Set the IP Addresses of the server that will receive the SMTP (I would personally leave it as All available IPv4). Hit Next.
(NOTE: Remember to make a note of the port as you will need to ensure your appliance can use the same port. Default is 25)
6) Remove the default IP Address Range from the Remote Network Settings
7) Add the IP address of the device you want to send emails from then hit Finish
8) Edit the connector you just created and go to security
9) Here you can set the type of authentication that your appliance will use

That should set your Exchange 2013 as an SMTP relay for that appliance.

Kind regards,
Amish.
