I am wanting to test this product before buying, and have been unable to configure it properly.

We have a single server situation.

I changed the port the exchange listens on to port 26 (per the user manual instructions)
Then rebooted the server
Then stopped the SMTP service
Then Installed NoSpamToday
Went into the configuration wizard and the only screen that I changed anything from the defaults is the Incoming and Outgoing Mail Settings, I changed it to this
Incoming IP Any
Incoming Port Number 25
Outgoing Server **tried both 192.168.100.251(myserver) and blank
Outgoing Port Number 26
Outgoing Connections 5
After successful installation my exchange server would not work, I found that in my exchange server manager, under server, protocols, smtp I could not START the Default SMTP Virtual Server.
Event Log stated: The service could not bind instance 1. The data is the error code.
Uninstalled NoSpamToday
Then I could START the Default SMTP Virtual Server, and all was Okay.

I really would like to evaluate this product and I do not want to change the port that external mail in coming from. Any suggestions.

Thanks so much.

It looks like Exchange still listens to port 25. Please note that the
instructions to change the Exchange port are valid only for Exchange 5.5.
To be safe, you should establish a second IP address for use with NoSpamToday!
Then change NST's "Incoming IP" setting to the new address and configure
your firewall to redirect incoming SMTP traffic to this address.
The other settings:
Incoming Port Number 25
Outgoing Server 192.168.100.251 (the IP Exchange listens to)
Outgoing Port Number 25 (the port Exchange listens to)

Anyway: NST's incoming IP should be set to a particular IP address (not "Any")
in this kind of setup with NST and the Mail server running on the same hardware.
