Configure relay SMTP server on Windows 2008

I have a Windows 2008 server and installed Apache as web server for my php projects. Some application uses email functionality to send subscriptions email and welcome mails.

But the default server configuration did not send the email from the server even though I installed SMTP service integrated with the server.

You may need to do two things,
1. Install SMTP service
2. Enable relay on SMTP service

The following screen shots will help you to do that.

a. Open the server manager and add the role–> choose SMTP server and install.

Now we need to enable the smtp relay in it.

It the time to check mail relay is enabled. Pls note that we are enabled email relay only from the server. If you want to use this server as relay server for your network, You must add your static ip. So all the mails are relayed through this server.
