How to Configure Application Server Relay trough Exchange 2007 HTS Server.

Filed under: Exchange 2010 — telnet25 @ 4:40 pm

You have application server and you wish to let this server relay mails  trough your exchange 2007 server. I will show you how to set this up on exchange server and how to troubleshoot to make sure it is working or now.

  • Exc07.smtp25.org=10.10.10.7 ( exchange HTS server)
  • App01.smtp25.org=10.10.10.131 ( Some application server needs mail relay)

open EMC, drill down under Server Configuration, click on Hub Transport configuration

Exc01_001

We will work on the right pane under “receive Connectors”

The receive connector installed on HTS server and it is

logical gateway through which all messages are received.

Exc01_002

Or think it is as  “receive connectors as protocol listeners” similar to  Exchange 03 is an SMTP Virtual Server.

Exc01_003

Now lets create one “receive connector” and specify who can relay trough and sent messages out from this connector

on the Receive connectors , make a right click and select

  • New Receive Connector

Exc01_004

  • Give it a name
  • Internal_Relay ( I used this one)
  • Internal ( Click Drop Down and select intended use)
  • Click next

Exc01_005

Now we need to specify the application relay server IP address here.

  • First remove the default

  • Include the IP Address of relaying server
  • In my scenario this is going to be 10.10.10.131
  • Click next
  • Click new

  • and finish

  • Now I have the connector in the Receive connector list

Now log into application server and open CMD

  • Telnet mail2 25 ( hit enter)
  • Helo ( hit enter)
  • mail from:report@telnet25.org ( Change this to accommodate your environment), Most likely this will be the e-mail address application will try to sent mail out to the exchange server
  • I receive “ 530 5.7.1 Client was not authenticated”

Exc01_010

  • we have still have problems and do little more work to get this going
  • Go back to connector , click on Permissions group, select
  • Anonymous users

Exc01_011

Go back to relaying server we will perform the basic SMTP test from CMD one more time

  • telnet mail2 25
  • helo
  • mail from:Report@Telnet25.org
  • rcpt to:Report@Telnet25.org
  • Data ( hit enter)
  • Subject: Testing Mail Relay ( Hit enter)
  • Testing Mail Relay ( this is Body)
  • press dot + Enter + dot on the keyboard

Exc01_012

  • now we got 250
  • open the mailbox for report@telnet25.org to verify the e-mail in the destination mailbox
