Exchange 2007

  Asked By: Tyler    Date: Jan 25    Category: MOSS    Views: 669

I have MOSS 2007 setup on Windows Server 2003 and Exchange 2003. So far
everything works fine. Emails/alerts are sent to users via Exchange
2003. Lately, we've installed Exchange 2007 and emails/alerts are not
being sent. The error I got was:

The user/users have been added successfully but the email wasn't sent.

When ANONYMOUS USERS is enabled on Exchange 2007, then only does email
go through for 2007. Exchange 2003 also has ANONYMOUS USERS enabled.

Does anyone know whether how we can go about not enabling ANONYMOUS
USERS but still Exchange 2007 will work?

SharePoint will only send anonymous - there is no way to make it send
using credentials. One workaround is to use a local SMTP instance on
the MOSS server(s) to create an authenticated relay that accepts
anonymous mail from MOSS and sends authenticated to Exchange.

What we did was created a receive connector on our server running the hub
transport role, and configured it to accept un-authenticated requests only from
the MOSS server. Here's the powershell script to make it happen:

New-ReceiveConnector -Name "MOSS_Server" -Server HUB_TPT_SERVER -Bindings -RemoteIPRanges w.x.y.z -AuthMechanism TLS,ExternalAuthoritative
-PermissionGroup ExchangeServers

Where HUB_TPT_SERVER is the hostname of your hub transport servers, and w.x.y.z
is the IP address of your MOSS server.
