Now you need to make sure that your email server can forward email to your SharePoint server. For
Exchange, you need to create an SMTP connector that points to the new MX record in your new DNS
zone. For most email server products (the one I am using included), you need to enable relay on the
SMTP service for that server. Generally, that means you would go to the email product’s console
and specify your relay settings.
Usually you can either specify the address of the SharePoint server and select Only The List Below
or leave the list blank and select All Except The List Below. With this second option, it will exclude
whatever you specify in the list (if it’s blank, that means it excludes no addresses). In my example, I
specified that only the IP addresses listed were acceptable relays (I included the ser ver itself, because
the product had itself in there, and the IP range of only servers inside the office).
Finally, you need to go back to the SharePoint server and make the incoming email address for the
server match your new domain alias. Follow these steps:
In SharePoint Central Administration, go to the Operations page, and click the Configure
Incoming E-Mail Settings link.
On the Configure Incoming E-Mail Settings page, scroll down to the Incoming E-Mail Server
Display Address section, and change the address in the field to your new domain alias. My
example uses dem0tek.com.
