Creating Send Connector in Exchange Server 2013/2016

Creating Send connector which will help you send mails to Internet.

After Installing Exchange Server 2016, it will not be in position to send emails to external network or outside the Organization.

 

So for sending email to outside network you need to create Send Connector.

Now before moving forward we need to discuss different types of Send Connector. There are 4 different types as explained below:

 

Custom :   Allows you to send email to other Non-Exchange Mail Servers.

Internal :   If you have Edge Server in your Environment and you want to Route Email through Edge Server, then select this option.

Internet :   This will allow you to send emails to External networks to the Internet. Configure this if you want to Send emails to Internet.

Partner : This will send emails using Third Party servers using TLS encryption and Certificate Authentication.
