To continue to receive e-mail from your server, you must install the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service to enable your server to relay e-mail to Exchange Online. You must also set the service to start automatically, and you must configure the service to communicate with Exchange Online.

  1. Click Start, and then click Server Manager.

  2. In the console tree, click Features.
