I’m not sure if this is the right forum to post this.
Anyway, I’m trying to setup a Windows SBS 2003 server for a non profit group. In the email configuration wizard for outgoing mail it gives me two choices:
Use DNS to route e-mail:
Click if you want to use DNS to send e-mail to the Internet. Exchange sends outgoing e-mail using a mail exchanger (MX) resource record in Domain Name System (DNS).
Forward all e-mail to e-mail server at your ISP:
Click if you want to send all e-mail to the Internet through your ISP’s e-mail server (relay). Exchange will forward all e-mail to a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) smart host at your ISP.
You must enter the e-mail server name or IP address for your ISP.
Before selecting this option, check with your ISP to see if they allow e-mail forwarding.
My question is, what should I choose? I’ve already setup and verified that I can get pop3 messages into MS exchange on some test user accounts, that wasn’t too hard. But I’m kinda new at all this and I’m not sure what will work with Dreamhost for outgoing SMTP.
I dont think they let me “relay” the outgoing email to thier server since they require a login to send.
Any ideas? Or perhaps there’s some settings I’m missing, maybe some SMTP configurator to config each accout for outgoing?
