Configuring Exchange 2013 Outbound

 

 

Use the EAC to create a Send connector to route outbound email through a smart host

  1. In the EAC, navigate to Mail flow > Send connectors, and then click Add Add Icon.

  2. In the New send connector wizard, specify a name for the send connector such as MailRoute Outbound and then select Custom for the Type. You typically choose this selection when you want to route messages to computers not running Microsoft Exchange Server 2013. Click Next.

  3. Choose Route mail through smart hosts, and then click Add Add Icon. In the Add smart host window, specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN), outbound.mailroute.net. Click Save.

    For Smart host authentication, choose None.

  4. Under Address space, click Add Add Icon. In the Add domain window, make sure SMTP is listed as the Type. For Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN), enter * to specify that this send connector applies to messages sent to any domain. Click Save.

  5. For Source server, click Add Add Icon. In the Select a server window, choose a server and click Add Add Icon. Click OK.

  6. Click Finish.

Once you have created the send connector, it appears in the Send connector list.

How do you know this worked?

To verify that you have successfully created a Send connector to route outbound email through a smart host, send a message from a user in your organization (you can use the Outlook Web App) to the domain you specified for the Address space. If the recipient receives the message, you've successfully configured the send connector.
