How to Set a Connector Schedule

 

Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-24

If you are using an SMTP connector to connect to a network service provider and download your Internet e-mail messages, you may want to schedule specific times for the connector to contact the network service provider's server. Alternatively, you can specify that a connector hold e-mail messages until a remote server triggers delivery.

Before you perform the procedure in this topic, read Connecting Exchange to the Internet.

The following permissions are required to perform this procedure:

  • Member of the local administrators group and a member of a group that has had the Exchange Administrators role applied at the administrative group level

  1. In Exchange System Manager, expand Connectors by performing one of the following steps:

    • If you do not have routing groups or administrative groups displayed, expand your Exchange Server organization, and then expand Connectors.

    • If you have only routing groups displayed, expand Routing Groups, expand <Routing Group Name>, and then expand Connectors.

    • If you have only administrative groups displayed, expand Administrative Groups, expand <Administrative Group Name>, and then expand Connectors.

    • If you have administrative groups and routing groups displayed, expand Administrative Groups, expand <Administrative Group Name>, expand Routing Groups, expand <Routing Group Name>, and then expand Connectors.

  2. Right-click <your SMTP connector>, and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Delivery Options tab.

    The Delivery Options tab of the SMTP Connector Properties dialog box

  4. To specify a time when the connector runs, click Specify when messages are sent through this connector.

  5. In the Connection time list, select a time or click Customize to create a custom schedule.

  6. To schedule a different time for the connector to deliver oversize messages, select the Use different delivery times for oversize messages check box. If you select this check box, the following options appear:

    • Oversize messages are greater than (KB)   In this box, type a threshold number that defines oversize messages.

    • Connection time   In this list, select a time or click Customize to create a custom schedule.

  7. To hold e-mail messages until a remote server triggers delivery, click Queue mail for remote triggered delivery, and then click Add to add authorized accounts that can trigger remote delivery.
