How to Configure a Smart host on Exchange 2007 to forward outbound emails to Sonicwall Email security server
If your Exchange Server 2007 is currently configured to send emails externally, a Send Connector must already have been created and configured correctly on the Hub Transport server.
For Exchange 2007, Microsoft has split up the various jobs that Exchange has to perform into separate roles, with the implication that each role can be handled by a different server. The Hub Transport role is the one responsible for sending and receiving external emails. In the real world of small to medium sized companies, a single Exchange server is likely to be performing all the various roles.
Open Exchange Management Console Click on the + next to Organization Configuration Select Hub Transport and select the Send Connectors tab:-
Right-click on the existing Send Connector, select Properties and go to the Network tab. Select "Route mail through the following smart hosts:" and click Add:- (shown below)
Specify the smart host as shown below:-
You either add the IP address of sonic wall’s email security server instead or it's internal resolvable host name.
The changes you've made to the Send Connector will take effect straight away without you having to reboot the server or restart any services.
