How to configure Mapi to smtp proxy?


Hello, Walter Neff!

You want to know how to configure mail settings for Exchange mail from MAPI to SMTP. It is very easy to configure mail from MAPI to SMTP but there’s a slight problem. The SMTP server is for sending mails only. SMTP can't receive mails. But MAPI can both receive and send mails. If you don't set the recommended settings of your SMTP, then you will not be able to send mails in the future. To configuring mail with SMTP server, you need to set POP3 as well for to receive mails. SMTP works with POP3 server. Hope this answers your question. If another issue comes up, just visit this site again.

Have a good time.

How to configure Mapi to smtp proxy?

Hi Walter!
I'm going to teach you how to set-up the SMTP.
First, you have to make sure that you have the following:
1. You need a user that has Exchange Online mailbox
2. SMPT must set up on port 587
3. Enable the TLS or Transport Layer Security
4. Server name for mailbox
You can now setup the SMTP that relays in Office 35, follow these steps:
Step 1: You need to obtain the setting of SMPT server, to do that follow these steps:
* Sign into your Outlook account
* For your Office 365, Select "Settings" then choose "Options" then select "Account" then "Settings for Pop and IMAP access"
Step 2: Make a user with Exchange Online mailbox.
Step 3: This time, you need to setup now the IIS or Internet Information Services that relays for SMTP server.
Follow these steps to setup IIS:
* Launch the Server Manager the select "Features" then "Add Features"
* On the "Features" page, check the checkbox beside the SMTP Server a window will pop up just select the "Add Required Role Services" then hit "Next". Also click "Next" in IIS page.
* On "Role Services" page, you need to select the following:
1. ODBC Logging
2. IIS Metabase Compatibility
3. II6 Management Console
Step 5: Then hit install to start the installation process.
Step 6: After the installation process hit Finish and the Window will close.
Step 7: Launch the IIS 6.0 Manager then right click the "Default SMTP Virtual Server" then choose "Properties"
Step 8: Hit "Access" then "Relay"
Step 9: You can see the "Select which computers may relay through this virtual server" select the "Only the list below" and then you are required to enter the IP addresses of LOB devices and the application servers who will rely on SMTP server. Make sure to enter only trusted IP addresses
Step 10: You can see the "Access" tab then select the "Authentication" then check the "Anonymous access" then hit "Ok"
Step 11: Select the "Delivery" tab then click the "Advanced". Input the FQDN of the SMTP server that you do in Step 1 under "Smart Host".
Step 12: Select the "Outbound Connections"
Step 13: On the "TCP Port", enter "587" then hit "OK"
Step 14:  Then click "Outbound Security". Follow the instructions below:
* Select the "Basic Authentication"
* Enter the "Username" that you created in Step 2
* Enter your "Password"
* Click the "TLS encryption" then hit OK
