Hi,

We do not currently have network connectivity to an in house smtp relay server.    Do I need to use an IIS Server for this or how can I do this to the safest relay server without using an in - house mail server for the short term:

IIS is a web server, not an email or SMTP server.  While older versions included a SMTP server, it did not include a POP3 server which is used to read email.  The article you have linked is using a Gmail SMTP server.

You need access to a mail server that will accept your SMTP traffic.

Have you considered an Office 365 Business Essentials subscription? I believe you can get it for as little as $6 (one user for only one month.) It includes a business email server - your domain name and all that, in the cloud. Couldn't be easier. I decided to retire my company's local mail servers, which cost way too much to just maintain properly, not including the hardware, licenses, additional software (AV, anti-spam, etc.). Moved it all to Office 365. Got rid of a lot of headaches and saved a bunch of money!

Phishing attempts can come in all forms, shapes and sizes. No matter how familiar you think you are with them, always remember to take extra precaution when opening an email with attachments or links.
