How to add SMTP to your SharePoint farm?

Just wanted to post a really quick, and hopefully helpful, guide on setting up the SMTP Server feature for your SharePoint 2010 farm.

  1. Server Manager
    • Features
    • Add Features
      • SMTP Server (in list)
        Click on Add Required Role Services
        • Next
        • Next
        • Next
        • Install
      • Click on Close when finished
    • Exit the Server Manager
  2. (Optional) Control Panel
    • System and Security
      • Administrative Tools
        • Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 Manager
          • XXXX (local computer)
            • SMTP Virtual Server #1
              Right-click, properties.
              • Access Tab
                • Authentication
                  May have to adjust for Active Directory (AD).
That's it. SMTP should now be enabled on your farm.
