SMTP with Exchange Server 5.5

By davidh ·
I have an Exchange 5.5 server running on my LAN, all users were sending/receiving mail thru this. We know are using an internet mail account to receive mail and would also like to send mail thru this service. Is there a way to for a user to send mail using just their internet mail account while still having the exchange service still installed on their machine. I would like to utilize the global address list for exchange but don't want to use it to send or receive mail.

SMTP with Exchange Server 5.5

I think I understand what you are asking.

What you need to do is creat an internet mail service in outlook accounts/services. (please note using exchange and internet mail service is not supported by microsoft) but it still works.
For this account assign the smtp servers to your proxy/firewall. You could set up a wingate server for this.
Then make sure that the delivery settings in outlook are correct they should be set to internet mail followed by microsoft exchange transport.
Please note also that there is no way to force the messages created from the GAL to go via this route.
You can however force them out using alternate recipient. Buts thats another story.
Hope this is what you need.
