Setting up a Receive Connector in Exchange Management Studio is quite simple. The purposes of a Receive Connector is to allow the inbound flow of messages to your Exchange Organization. The purpose of my Exchange Connector was to allow the ability for my web sites forum users to send mail from my forum interface through my Exchange Server. Without this connector the mail intended for recipients inside my Exchange organization that an external forum user sent would get rejected.
Open Exchange Management Console. In left pane expand Microsoft Exchange then Server Configuration then highlight Hub Transport. Highlight Hub Transport found in the center pane.
In the right hand pane click on New Receive Connector. Provide a name for the Connector and in my case Custom as the intended use.
Specify the FQDN the connector will respond to.
Edit the Remote Network settings. Highlight the IP range and click Edit.
Enter the IP address or range of the Remote Servers.
And click Finish.
