#### Exchange and SMTP and Web Servers

I have a Win2003 web server with SMTP enabled and we use it to send
email from within several web applications ... my question may be some
what basic but how does the mail flow out ... Does the web server send
the email directly or does the email get routed to an Exchange server ?
... and if the web server sends the email out directly is there a way
to make the web server send all mail to an Exchange server for
additional processing?  Our Exchange severs have some sort of "Mail
Guard" that will scan all out going emails ... and I need to have the
emails that are sent from the web server to go thru this Mail Guard as
well ...

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks
Rob

Hi,

That depends on the configuration you have made on the SMTP server. Do you
use DNS (direct send) or smart-host (send through another server). You
should use smart-host and then use the exchange server as the smart-host.
Remember to configure the exchange sever to allow this server to relay thru
the exchange server.

I believe that we are using direct send ... if I put a smart host in
(name of exchange server) will that force the web server to send all
mail traffic to the exchange server...

Exchange 5.5 to Exchange 2003 Migration Question: No ADC??
Hello all: I have an environment where I need do do an Exch 5.5 to 2003 Migration. The domain has already been migrated from NT4 to 2003.

Box B is now the working exchange server and Box A is no longer used. The problem is that if I actually shut down Box A I can add a new user to Active Directory but I am unable to modify a users email/smtp details. All mail can still be transferred with no problems which would lead me to believe that Exchange is Ok but there is some sort of Active Directory link between the two bo...
