Course Description

Explore how to plan, configure, and manage send connectors and receive connectors in this 22-video course, designed to help in preparation for the MS-200 Planning and Configuring a Messaging Platform certification exam. Learners begin the course by examining receive connectors, including default receive connectors, local address bindings, and remote addresses. Then you will explore receive connector usage types, authentication mechanisms, and permission groups. Next, learners examine scenarios for custom receive connectors and demonstrate how to modify the SMTP (simple mail transfer protocol) banner and allow anonymous relay. Then you will move on to examine send connectors, including usage types, network settings, address spaces, permissions, and scope. Also covered in this course are key considerations for implementing custom receive connectors, including the widely used Exchange Server default connectors. Finally, the course gives practical demonstrations of how to create Internet mail and outbound mail send connectors; how to configure proxy outbound mail send connectors; and how to enable protocol logging.
