Exchange 2010 - receive internet eMail
Hi I have choosen the standard Exchange 2010 installation type and I have no edge transport server role. This link shows how to create e receive connector, but I need to have the edge transport role here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb125159.aspx Since I have a standard installation I think that I can receive internet emails too. What are the configuration steps (without the edge transport server role) to receive internet emails? My server can already send emails to the internet. Thanks for your help. Patrick

You don't have to have an edge server to receive internet email on your HUB. You have the right link to walk you through the process. To enable the HUB server to accept emails from the internet, you need to do one of two things: enable "Anonymous Users" on your Default ServerName connector or create a new receive connector with "Anonymous Users" enabled. Is this not what you are looking for?Tim Harrington | MVP: Exchange | MCITP: EMA 2007/2010, MCITP: Server 2008, MCTS: OCS | Blog: http://HowDoUC.blogspot.com | Twitter: @twharrington

Hi and thanks for your advice. Yes this is what I am looking for. I already enabled 'Anonymous Users', but eMails don't come. I need to contact my external eMail provider, since now I am not sure, if I have another way than POP3 to connect. I think, that I have no POP3 connector in Exchange 2010, is this correct? Which are the prerequirements for an external eMail provider, to have the possibility to receive my eMails in my Exchange 2010? Patrick

So you are trying to POP your email into Exchange? POP is not enabled by default in Exchange. Why not change the MX records so that email is getting delivered directly to your Exchange server (via SMTP)?Tim Harrington | MVP: Exchange | MCITP: EMA 2007/2010, MCITP: Server 2008, MCTS: OCS | Blog: http://HowDoUC.blogspot.com | Twitter: @twharrington

Hi and thanks for your input: I prefere to leave my mails on my external ISP, for security reasons. Can you please tell me, how to enable POP or IMAP on my Exchange 2010 to connect to my ISP to download emails? Thanks a lot. Patrick

Thanks a lot. Exchange has never included any POP-to-SMTP kludge. POP and IMAP are protocols used by client software to read messages from mailboxes, not transfer them between servers. SBS has one, though. If you're not using SBS you can find those things using a search engine. Some are free, some cost money. All are bad news. --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP --- Rich Matheisen MCSE+I, Exchange MVP

I prefere to leave my mails on my external ISP, for security reasons. What security reasons (or concerns) are you trying to achieve? Exchange is pretty secure by default. If you are wanting to perform message hygiene off premises, you can also achieve this with Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (message hygiene, AV and anti-spam, in the cloud).Tim Harrington | MVP: Exchange | MCITP: EMA 2007/2010, MCITP: Server 2008, MCTS: OCS | Blog: http://HowDoUC.blogspot.com | Twitter: @twharrington
