Many Exchange servers are configured to prevent mail relaying.
This generally causes no problem for the Brother device UNLESS
you have configured it to send e-mail messages to completely
different domains. In this case, we recommend that you change
the settings of your Exchange server in the following way:
Under the server name entry of the main three find the "Connections" node and click it.
On the right hand pane there should be a list of install
connectors. Double click the "Internet Mail Service"
entry to display its properties.
Go to the "Connections" page of these properties.
There are hree things to do here:
3.1. In the "Transfer Mode" area make sure "Inbound
& Outbound" is selected.
3.2. In the "Accept Connections" area:
(a) Make sure "From Any Host" is selected;
(b) Click the "Hosts" button. In the dialog that is displayed:
(i) add an "accept" entry for every server that
forwards SMTP e-mail to this exchange server, making sure
that the netmask is correct (i.e. 255.255.255.255 for complete
(ii) add an "accept" entry for the Brother device
so that it can send SMTP messages to the exchange server
(iii) add a "refuse" entry for "0.0.0.0"
with netmask "0.0.0.0" to prevent unauthorized
servers using the exchange server as a relay.
(3.3) Make sure the "Message Delivery" area is
configured to correctly handle e-mail not destined for the
exchange server - this should already be done because outgoing
mail is the considered to be the same as mail not destined
for the exchange server.
- Go to the "Routing" page.
4.1 Check the "Reroute incoming SMTP mail" radio button.
4.2 In the box beneath add an entry for each domain the
exchange server accepts mail for and make sure the setting
for each of these entries is "incoming". Everything
else will be treated as mail not destined for this server
and be handled using the procedure outlined in the "Message
Delivery" area above.
