I need to configure SQLMail for the old project for which the migration planning is going on. To configure the SQLMail, I refer the following web link:
From this link on the requirement, I have a question:
Initial Setup: (Taken from the article)
Before you configure SQL Mail, you'll need to configure a mailbox, mail profile, and a Windows 2000 account to start SQL Server. If you're using Exchange, you need a domain account. If you're using a basic POP3/SMTP mail server, you need a local or domain account. For the purposes of this article, I'll show you how to configure a POP3/SMTP mail server.
Here, it has been mentioned that For Exchange Server - Domain account required Basic POP3/SMTP mail server - Local or Domain account
My question is how to distinguish between Exchange & SMTP mail server, in other words what is the difference between them ? Could anyone please explain it ?
Thanks in Advance
