If you have an MTA, you have to configure Send-Connector to use that MTA as a smarthost. If that MTA is yours, then you can set relay on that server for your Exchange servers. But what about 3rd party MTA providers like DynDNS? They give you username/password for Basic Authentication and you can’t send email without that credentials. So we also need to set Basic Authentication on Send-Connector but how? Because Hosted Exchange 2010 SP1 has no GUI and Powershell requires System.Management.Automation.PSCredential to accept your credentials. I’ll show you how to solve this.
For example you have an MTA service from DynDNS and your information:
Default Send Connector: Internet Connector
So you should use this script for that informations:
After this changes, you will be able to use your MTA.
