E-mail
Settings page
In addition to setting up incoming email, you also can enable something called Directory
Management Service (DMS). This feature ties SharePoint in with Active Directory to allow
SharePoint to create contact items and distribution list objects in a specific organizational unit
(OU). It requires Exchange (2003 or higher, but newer versions might need additional
configuration) and Active Directory, of course. Contrary to popular belief, Directory Management Service
does not have to be enabled for incoming email to work. For more details concerning
configuring incoming email, see Chapters 2 and 3, and for setting up incoming email on a list itself, see
Chapter 6, “Introduction to Lists.”

This setting is similar to the one under the General Settings button on the Manage Web
Applications page. Here it is used as the default for the whole farm instead of an individual web
application.
To configure a mobile account for the farm, you first have to sign up with a mobile provider,
which will give you a URL of the text message service and a username and password for the
account. You can test the service using the Test Service button. Be aware that mobile accounts
require a fee to be paid to the mobile provider for their service. Typically the server farm is
configured with this one account, as opposed to having separate ones for each web application.
Farm Management
This subcategory contains settings to manage farm-specific configuration tasks, such as farm
features, solutions, and privacy options. These settings are intended to have an effect on the
entire farm, from sites to web applications.
