HowTo configure Redmine to mail to MS Exchange server

MS Exchange works the same way as other SMTP servers: just edit your config/email.yml file with your favorite text editor. Initially, the production section should look something like this:

production:
delivery_method: :smtp
smtp_settings:
address: smtp.example.net
port: 25
domain: example.net
authentication: :login
user_name:
password: redmine

Usually MS Exchange will not require authentication information for outgoing (SMTP) email, so you can just comment out domain, authentication, user_name and password lines. Then, change address to point to the IP or DNS name of your Exchange server. (if using a DNS name, make sure your web server can resolve it using ping!)

production:
delivery_method: :smtp
smtp_settings:
address: your_exchange_server_address
port: 25
#domain: example.net
#authentication: :login
#user_name:
#password: redmine

You may also have to change the port, depending on your Exchange server's configuration.

It should also be possible to allow outgoing email instead of just outgoing, by re-enabling the authentication and configuring the domain, username, and password correctly. However, this will require a separate email account to be created specifically for Redmine; you'll have to ask your Exchange server administrator about creating such an account.
