Update for RTM (thanks Glenn!)

Note this works for the public beta and is subject to change

This assumes that your domain is and WSF is the domain specific to Sharepoint, everything that is RED is a value you need to set

  • New-ForeignConnector -Name “WSF Connector” -AddressSpaces “” -SourceTransportServers “Hub01″,”Hub02″
  • Set-TransportServer Hub01 -RootDropDirectoryPath “C:\Drop Directory
  • Set-ForeignConnector “WSF Connector” -DropDirectory “WSF”

· Configure WSF to use drop folder

  • Start –> All Programs –> MS SP 2010 Prod –> SP 2010 Central Admin
  • System Settings –> Configure incoming e-mail Settings
  • Enable Sites on this server to receive e-mail = yes
