Different smtp Server for Different Locations

I have an account that I use both from home and work. Receiving email
from these two locations works just fine. Nevertheless, for sending
emails I always have to change the smtp server. For instance at work I
have to set the smtp server to ms.[companyname].com whereas at home I
have to set it to smtp.[ISP].com. Is there a way around this so that I
don't always have to change the smtp for sending emails?

Depends on the firewall settings at home/work.

Some ISP's don't allow connections to any other SMTP server other then
their own. In this case, there isn't much you can do unless you can VPN
into your work server first in which case the work SMTP settings will
work both ways.

If ISP allows connections to other SMTP servers and work allows
external connections to their SMTP server then it will work both ways.

What I typically do is setup 2 profiles in outlook, one is my @ Work
profile and the other my @ Home profile. When I start outlook it asks
me which profile I want to use, which always uses the correct SMTP

Hope this helps,

Brad D.

you'll always need to change something unless authenticating with the SMTP 
takes care of it (if your home isp blocks SMTP, authentication won't help) -

Redundant Exchange Servers
My company has two locations. Right now both locations are two separate domains. We would like to build a new domain and migrate both domains into the new domain. We are trying to set up Exchange so that there is no single point of failure. Can I set up Exchange in both locations so that if one site goes down the other site will receive all the mail and hold all the mail until the other server is back online? Also, can I set two Exchange servers up to be fully redundant? If so, do I need to have shared storage for the two servers? I am guessing that to make this happen, I will n...

Move from hosted outlook to In-House 2003 Exchange Server
Currently our office uses Hosted Outlook services from an ASP. We have grown in size and it is now economically advantageous to move to an in-house exchange server. I have built a 2003 server with exchange 2003 running. I am thinking of having our DNS provider add a second MX record for the in-house server with a lower priority than the ASP's server. Then I would have the ASP forward all email received to the in-house server while testing. I would then configure the test clients Outlook to use the in-house exchange server and hopefully all will go well. Does anyone have suggestions...

range of data from different sheets
I'm having trouble creating a graph because the data is spread on different sheets. I've got a new sheet for each month and I'd like to produce a trend graph. Do I have to bring each set of numbers onto the same sheet, or is there a way to have a range of data spread over various sheets? I hope that makes sense! For any given series, for any given set of values (x or y) the data must be on the same sheet. Other than that, you can have data on multiple sheets. So, for one series you could have the series name on one sheet, the x- values on a 2nd sheet, and the y-values on a...

Reply to email address in the Exchange Server

DPM 2010 RC - DPM could not backup some files
In the DPM 2010 RC, whenever DPM cannot back up some data source's files (ID 32526), nowhere in the DPM Admin Console does is say WHICH server it could not back up the files for. On the Alerts tab, none of the information for these failed file alerts indicates the data source or server name. It just gives the DPM server's name in the Computer column. The View failed files log gives the path of the failed files, but not even this gives the protecter server's name. This requires me to deduce which protected server the failed files are on by looking at the paths of the f...
