Setting Up SMTP on Exchange 2010

Hello,
    We just setup a Voicemail server on our network and it needs to log into our Exchange server using SMTP to send out reports.
1) What are the default exchange 2010 SMTP settings we should put into the program?
2) I don't believe SMTP was setup specifically, so if it does need to be, how do we do that? Could we make an open connector just for the I address of this specific server?

Thanks!

i typically setup specific receive connectors to my exchange servers for Voicemail to email systems, scan to email MFP's and etc.

I do this by creating a named receive connector bound to the lan address of the exchange server, and issuing a specific port like 2501, 2502, 2503 etc.  This way I have the freedom of bending to the security requirements of the sending device (i.e. can be anonymous, TLS, SSL, etc.) and wont mess with my other outlook, active sync, exchange users.

Thanks! So If I make a specific connector, and then require authentication, should I I just us the username (ie joe) for the login or do I need to put in the full username (i.e. joe@domain.local)

if you want authentication it would simply be the username, without domain <domain>\

i.e    joe

Well another option if you know the specific voicemail server that will be using the newly created Receive connector just add the voicemail servers ip in the remote ip list and set the permissions to anonymous on the connector so that anything coming from that ip would be accepted.

Here are some articles with more information on how to create Receive connector

If the voicemail application is not sending emails to anyone outside of Exchange then you don't need an additional connector. The same connector used for receiving emails from the internet will work fine. Just point the tool at your Exchange server using port 25.

However if you need to send to external recipients (which will be relaying) or you have restrictions on your receive connector then a new receive connector can be used.

Sorry. One more question. Shows my insane ignorance here. Should it be a "Send" or "receive" connector that I make?

Ok. That seemed to work. I have enabled basic authentication. And then anonymous user since it is just this one machine.

Yea you just have to make sure you limit the remote ip list and add them as needed.

Crap. The Voicemail server has 2 nic cards and I think it is trying to use the other one to send SMTP messages. It's not working.

Do you have IP assigned to both the NIC cards?
Just stick with one and see if things work if not required you should disable the other NIC unless you are planning to implement NIC teaming.

I got it working. There was a field in the Voicemail server which, well, even after turning off authentication you had to delete the items in the fields for it to really be turned of. Thanks!
