FogBugz & Exchange Server
Our IT department have decided to move our email from an internal server to an oursourced MS Exchange Server, and now it appears to have broken FogBugz.
Assuming your IT department is competent they should be able to set up an SMTP server running on the same box as FogBUGZ to allow it (and nothing else) to send email - the existence or otherwise of Exchange on that box, or indeed anywhere else, is not relevant to FB's ability to send email.
How will that deliver the email to the FogBugz users?
Fogbugz will send mail to the users in the same way as any other person external to the exchange system would send mail to those users - the SMTP server on the fogbugz box will talk to the outside world and the DNS/MX magic will cause the messages to arrive in at the exchange server which will, in turn, deliver the messages to the appropriate inboxes in exactly the same way as is if I sent an email to one of your users.
I understand what you mean now.
The bottom line is that if you have FogBUGZ set up you have an SMTP server already; what I mean is that FogBUGZ currently requires IIS, and IIS has a "Default SMTP Server" built into it.
Just to close this off, we got the outsource company to allow the Exchange Server accept SMTP mail from the FogBugz server.
