Smart Host using Port 587 - 4.Mar.2008 8:14:26 AM

We are completing our migration to Exchange 2007 this week and our last step is to have our internal exchange box route all outbound mail through a smarthost via port 587 so the mail can be signed with domain keys.

I know exactly how to do this in our 2003 environment but being new to 2007 I am at a complete loss and searching the internet has left me guessing.  I am hoping someone with a little more exposure to 2007 can point me in the right direction.

I am guessing that I need to some how setup the desired behavior with the CMD shell but I am not sure where to start. 




"Okay, so I finally found a sharpie to sign in this little box. Now how do I wipe the ink off my monitor?"

It should be as simple as:

Open the EMC, go to the Hub Transport tab in Organisation Configuration.
Choose Send Connectors from the right hand side tabs
You should pobably have a send connector called outgoing mail. Double click on it to edit it and choose the network tab.
You can now define the smart host you want to forward all outgoing mail on and define the port.

Thanks for the reply and I have figured this part out.  The one that I was confused about was telling the server to send via port 587.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a nice way to set the Send Connector port in the Exchange Management Console (I am sure that you don’t hear this for the first time ).

Open Exchange Management Shell and start by checking your Send Connector(s) :
You should get the name of your send connector(s) – like “Default Send Connector”.
If you haven’t messed up with the port configuration of the connector yet, it should be using the default port -25. It is a good idea to confirm this with the command:
Get-SendConnector | fl port

Then change the port with the command:
Set-SendConnector –Identity “Your Send Connector Name” -Port 587

If you have only one Send Connector you can use that command too:
Get-SendConnector | Set-SendConnector -Port 587

Of course, it is a good idea to check the final result again with:
Get-SendConnector | fl port

Or even take a look at the full listing for the send connector:
Get-SendConnector | fl
