Hi

I have a Dell ME 4024 san and whenever a hard disk fails or if there is any issue with the storage, I was told that the storage would trigger an email alert. I was told that to set up email alerts on a SAN I must first set up a mil connector,
We moved to 03565 and I was told that a mail connector needs to be set up for the SAN to send the email alerts. and we use Exchange 2013 for a Hybrid set up.

Please let me know how to set up this mail connector and also how to set up the Email alerts on the Dell .
Thanks  and nay help will be great.

I am not very confident doing it on Exchange powers shell.  Is it possible to do it through GUI on the exchange 2013.

Other wise i will try the powershell. Will this command alone create the mail connector ?


Thanks

Yes.. it will create the connector only.. you need to change the parameters as per your environment.

For EAC -> Mail Flow -> Receive Connectors -> + to create New connector and continue as per the PowerShell command shared above..

No connector necessary if you intend to send only to your own domain. Just point to your MX

SMTP Server, as I said, your MX
Sender domain: up to you, not important
Sender name: same
enable TLS
email address: HAS TO BE your own.

If they didn't understand the first time they probably don't understand if you repeat it.

You can just put the IP address of the mail server in there.

It's Office 365, and MS mainly uses the specific assigned hostname to his Office 365 domain. So he still has to find out his MX record.
