Exchange 2007 Send Connector RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm upgrading from Exchange 2003 to 2007.  I have moved all of my mailboxes to 2007, and configured 2007 to receive Internet email.  Can I use the send connector already configured on my 2007 server by removing the Exchange 2003 server from the Source Server tab?  Do I need to delete the current Send Connector and create a new Internet Send Connector?  Your help is appreciated.

  • Hi

    I would delete the old one from System Manager and create a new one from EMC with the appropriate settings :)

  • I took your advice and deleted the old one from System Manager, and the old one remained on the Exchange 2007 server.  It won't allow me to delete it from EMC.  I get the message" Error: The operation could not be performed because object 'PDCLab could not be found on domain controller 'ACSERVER.pdcarea.lcl'.

  • The old send connector has disappeared, now.  I configured a new send connector for the Internet using the Address Space "SMTP * 1", Network of "Use domain name system (DNS), and a Source Server of the Exchange 2007 server name.  When I send an email to an Internet email account I don't get an error, but the message is never received.  My old send connector is still functional, but I have set the Cost to 10.

  • Sorry, i forgot to tell you that it sometimes takes some time for the connector to disappear from the exchange 2007 server

    You're not using any smarthost? Then DNS should be selected

    Doesn't work? What error do you got? Check the queue viewer ..

  • I was able to get my Internet send connector working.  I need to configure a send connector to the Exchange server at our laboratory.  I created a send connector but emails are not being sent to the lab email server, they are being queued for delivery.  I have attempted to use the private IP address and the Internet email IP address and FQDN, but the emails are just queued.

  • Hi Bob,


    What’s the last error of the queue? If you use telnet to connector to your lab directly and try to send an email, can the mail be received? Please also run command: get-sendconnector –id <send connector name> |fl and paste the result here.
