Setting incoming SMTP port on SBS / Exchange

leave a comment »

Having set up my SBS server some time ago, I couldn’t remember where I had set the incoming port number (falsely called 65535 here.) I find the button that pops open the dialog box for this quite forgettable, so I’ll document this here hoping to help someone — me included — in the future.

Running TCPView from SysInternals shows that inetinfo.exe is listening on port 65535.

TCPView from SysInternals shows the listening port for SMTP

This was set in Exchange System Manager, drilling down seven levels to the SMTP-Default, right-clicking Properties, Advanced and editing the incoming port number. By default, this is port 25 for SMTP.
Drill WAY down to change properties, advanced...
