WHO CAN I USE TO RELAY RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am setting up an exchange server in my lab environment at home. This is to run alongside my current studies towards the 70-647 exam.

    I am just wondering who i can use as a smart host to send email out? As i am not a business owner i do not have a registered company domain name etc. I do have a dyndns hostname which i am planning on using for my incoming mail.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Ask dyndns they offer smarthost services. As far as free services you can try to ask your isp.

  • I would suggest buying a domain name though - $10 or whatever so that you can test Exchange how it is designed to work. Your ISP will usually provide outbound SMTP services, check their website for SMTP settings for use with Outlook Express etc. Don't call their support for the information, they will just say "no supported" or similar.
