    Sharepoint incoming email

    I am currently dabbling with Sharepoint Services 3.0 on Windows 2008 server, and would like to be able to set it up to accept incoming email from an email address, and use those email messages to create tasks in a list (which I know is possible).

    However, the issue I have is this. Our email is provided by an external organisation. It is an exchange server, and I have an account I can use for this task.

    How do I link the 2 together? All the instructions I come across talk about having them within the same domain with sharepoint directory services working in tandem.

    Any hints or advice?

    To have incoming email working on your sharepoint the emails have to be received by one of the sharepoint servers throught the SMTP feature.
