I'm setting up incoming email for SharePoint 2010 integrated with Exchange 2010 but I'm not sure what to do next to get it working.
The server is named sharepoint.domainname.local so when I installed the SMTP virtual server it was also created with this name. Next I created an SMTP alias named sp.websitename.com so that incoming email can be setup in SharePoint to go to firstname.lastname@example.org. My company email format email@example.com.
Next I created a send connector in Exchange 2010 that is pointing to sp.websitename.com and specified the IP address the SMTP virtual server is installed on. I also setup AD DS integration that I have tested and appears to be working correctly.
What I'm not sure about is what to do next? I'm assuming I need to create an external mx record? Then incoming email will get routed to exchange which then sends it to the virtual smtp on the SharePoint server? How exactly do I set the MX record up? Thanks.
