We upgraded from Exchange Server 2003 to Exchange Server 2007 earlier this year.

Our Konica Minolta printers have the Scan-to-Email function
This works fine (as an anonymous user) to SMTP for internal mailbox addresses.
It doesn't work however, when you specify an external mail address.

As I recall, in Exchange Server 2003, you could specify IP addresses on the SMTP connector to allow the relay.  So I created a new SMTP connector in Exchange Server 2007 with the IP addresses of my printer/copiers, but this still doesn't work.

Ideas anyone?

In Exchange 2003 you would specify Relay Allow on the SMTP Virtual Server, not Connector.

Servers | [Server] | Protocol | SMTP | [Default SMTP | your own ]

The default is to deny relay to everyone, and add IP addresses as "Allow".

I am not sure how is this in Exchange 2007 but I don't think it changed much.

The way you setup SMTP relay has changed considerably in Exchange Server 2007. Rather than giving you a full run down on how to do it, I suggest you refer to the following article which describes 2 methods:

Hee hee, oops, that is what I meant.  Tongue out

I actually followed through that exact guide just yesterday, with no luck I'm afraid.  Cry
I'll re-read it, just in case I missed something.

Thanks guys.
Guess I'll just keep plugging away at it for a bit.

The end users might just have to scan-to-email to themselves internally, and then send it externally.
Which is probably a better option, as you get to preview the attachment before it goes out.

Which of the two methods did you use? Do you get an error when trying to scan to an external email address?
