I am working on a SharePoint implementation for a group within an international company. SharePoint has the ability to retrieve e-mails from an SMTP Drop Folder. I have installed the SMTP service on the same server and have been able to send a test e-mail to the server using telnet and an e-mail address of "something@ServerName.fully.qualified.domain"
However, I'm not sure what I need to do to allow the corporate Exchange 2003 environment to recognize the delivery address and forward it to my SMTP server.
I have heard of Exchange SMTP Connectors, but not sure if it is relevant here.
Another idea is to have an MX entry added to the DNS servers, but I would have thought a fully qualified machine name would be sufficient for the Exchange server to route the message to the SMTP server, but seemingly not.
The e-mails that I hope to be receiving will always come from within the AD domain, so I don't have to worry about routing on the internet.
My Exchange knowledge is minimal, so please use small words when offering any suggestions. I am trying to avoid any changes to the Exchange envrionment as this will probably not get approved by the global Exchange admin team.
