Remove a Send Connector

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You use Send connectors to create a connection to the Internet and to remote e-mail systems that require a specific configuration. For example, some remote e-mail systems may use a smart host or may require that you send e-mail messages that are larger than your standard Exchange organization limit. This topic shows you how to remove an existing Send connector in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

Don't perform this procedure on an Edge Transport server that has been subscribed to the Exchange organization by using EdgeSync. Instead, make the changes on the Hub Transport server. The changes are then replicated to the Edge Transport server next time EdgeSync synchronization occurs.
