In my previous article I wrote about the basic CAS and MBX Exchange Server 2013 configurations.
So login to the ECP page and now we will start with doing the following:
- Accepted Domain
- Email Address Policy
- Create a Send Connector
- Create a Receive Connector
in the ECP page , go to the “Mail Flow” on the left menu, then go to the “Accepted domains” tap.
- make sure that your SMTP domain is listed and all other domains you might have in your Network
- if not listed it’s easy to add it , just click on the “+” sign.
- fill the information and click “save”
- You can use PowerShell also :
> New-AcceptedDomain –Name “domain” –DomainName “domain.com” –DomainType Authoritative
Email Address Policies
- Now click to “email address policies” tap.
- this policies are used to put the email address “SMTP” to the created users in exchange server.
- by Default there is one default created policy when installing Exchange Server 2013, all we need is to edit it.
- Double click on the “Default Policy”
- on the Default Policy page on the left menu click on “Email address format”
- You can add format by clicking on the “+” sign
- I think it’s pretty clear what you have to do here, it’s just choosing the Domain and the way you want your User’s email look like.
- after finishing click on “Save”.
- Click on “Apply” on the right hand menu
Create a Send Connector
- Now on go to the “Send Connector tab.
- to be able to send email to the internet “Externally” you need to create an “Internet Send Connector”.
- click on the “+” sign.
- give it a name , and select “internet”.
- click Next
- if you have a “Smart Host” you use that emails goes to it first before being sent to the internet add it to the list, other wise use “MX records…” option
- click Next
- press the “+” button
- add * to the address space this should make the send connector include all the domains.
- click “Save”
- click next
- now add the server that will be the “Source” by clicking on the “+” sign
- click “ok”
- click “Finish”
- now you have a send connector allows you to send email to the outside word.
- you can use the following PowerShell command
> New-SendConnector –Name “Internet Connector” –AddressSpaces ‘*’ –SourceTransportServers “Server FQDN”–MaxMessageSize 30MB
Create Receive Connector
because the HT server role removed and combined together with CAS the new default Received connector is now named “Default FrontEnd “Server name””
- Click on the “Receive Connectors” Tab.
- Double click on the Default FrontEnd connector
- You can change the Max size
- and then go to “Security” menu in the left side
- Configure the connector authentication methods
- click “Save”
Now you are done with the basic configurations.
I will be writing an article about how to create and request a certificate in Microsoft Exchange Server 2013
