Smart Host Setup for Exchange 2007/2010

This guide assumes your exchange system is able to send emails externally and therefore a Send Connector has already been created and configured correctly on the Hub Transport Server. Configuring Microsoft Exchange 2007 or Microsoft Exchange 2010 to use our gateway, MTA-7.EMMTA.NET for the SmartHost should then only require the settings on the Send Connector to be modified.

In Microsoft Exchange 2007 and Microsoft Exchange 2010, Microsoft has split various tasks that  Exchange performs into different roles; that can be deployed across multiple servers or  contained on a single server. The Hub Transport role is the role responsible for sending and  receiving external emails and is the role that we will be configuring here.

  • Open the Exchange Management Console, Next, click on the + next to Organization Configuration.
  • Next, click on the + next to Organization Configuration
  • Select the Hub Transport and then select the Send Connectors tab.

Click Change… to set the authentication options. Then, type the username and password we’ve  issued to you in your welcome  email.


The changes you’ve made to the Send Connector will take effect immediately without having to  reboot the server or restart any services.
