Exchange 2007 to 2013 - Send connector modification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    If there is any recommended way how to perform switch-over between Ex2007 and Ex2013 in reference to sending emails ?. I  migrated all mailboxes, public folder etc.. to new Ex2013.

    However all email are being sent still by old Ex2007 and old smart host. So it would be better to update existing send connector and first add new smart host (then there would be 2 smart hosts at the same time), next add new Ex2013 as transport server.

    Furter delete old smart host, later old Ex2007 from transport role settings.

    What do you think ?

  • You could edit the existing connector if all settings are the same, Just remove the Exchange 2007 as source servers & add the 2013 ones or create a new send connector & disable the old one so it is easy to revert to old config in case of issues..

    In case the MX are pointing to 2007, change those to 2013, if there is spam filter, change the route to 2013/
