Use the Get-DeliveryAgentConnector cmdlet to retrieve information about a specific delivery agent connector in your organization.

Get-DeliveryAgentConnector [-Identity <DeliveryAgentConnectorIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

Delivery agent connectors are used to route messages addressed to foreign systems that don't use the SMTP protocol. When a message is routed to a delivery agent connector, the associated delivery agent performs the content conversion and message delivery. Delivery agent connectors allow queue management of foreign connectors, thereby eliminating the need for storing messages on the file system in Drop and Pickup directories. For more information, see Understanding Delivery Agents.
