I was told by someone much more knowledgable than I that I could get around installing an SMTP Connector in Exchange 2000 by simply configuring the Default SMTP Virtual server's external DNS addresses to point to my ISP's DNS servers. Which is the way I had it setup on my Exchange 5.5 server. Are there any potential problems with doing it this way?
I also wanted to ask about the removal of the Exchange 5.5 IMS connector. According to knowledgebase article Q316886, all I have to do to reroute the outgoing mail is to delete the IMS and then make sure that the connection agreement in the ADC replicates the change. This seems a bit simple to me. Does this mean that with the IMS gone my Exchange 2000 server will automatically know to look at the Default SMTP Virtual server for outgoing delivery.
