Some of there clients include College campuses, public and private schools, Govt Agencies, Commercial Office Buildings and Medical facilities. So, Proper communication in a professional way is a must when you are dealing and handling big clients. So, our customer wanted to send (Relay) notifications, updates and service updates to their clients via email using third party application which they were already using in their environment.
We discussed their requirement and advised them to use their existing Exchange Server 2010 to provide this service to there clients instead of purchasing any service from outside for this work. We configured and setup Relay Connector on their Exchange Server 2010 and then worked with third-party application vendor team to configure that application in such a way that it goes to the Local Exchange server, authenticates itself and then sends out notification/updates to there clients directly from their local environment.
