Hello All,

I currently have a server running Windows Server 2003 and an Avaya IP Office phone system.

This phone system is capable of sending out emails when a voice mail is left on an employees extension. I believe it requires an SMTP service to be running on the server. I have this service installed and running, but I am unsure the correct setting. I use Google Apps for our email services.

Thanks in advance, hopefully someone has some ideas for me!

All you have to do is point it to your Exchange IP address. You may have to add it to the SMTP service as an authorized relay source.

I am not sure what phone system you are using or it's settings. If you have Exchange server it is already an SMTP server, if you do not know how to manage the Exchange server or make changes I would contact someone to help you.

I am just referring to the settings for the SMTP service that runs on the server. I think have the phone system figured out.

Open system manager > expand servers > expand the server name > protocols > SMTP > right click the SMTP virtual server and select properties. On the Access tab click relay and add the IP address of your phone system.

Alright, got the IP address entered in that field.

I have attached an image of an area where I think i need to enter in some information.
The Advanced area of the Delivery tab.

Can you help me with these settings?

There is nothing to do in there. A smart host is a host external to your organization that holds and sends emails to your domain. The only thing you need to set up is on the Access tab.

If you do not know what you are doing in there do not arbitrarily go around making changes. All you should need is the relay ability, no smart hosts or anything else. Read the phone system documentation for Exchange server integration/

So I guess that is a no, to Gmail is not an external host?

There are no setting for me to arbitrarily change since I have just installed the SMTP service.

Thanks for your help.

The SMTP service should already be there on Exchange without having to add it unless you were using LDAP or POP.
