Connecting to exchange server

I have a public website accessible from the intranet and i have to
send mail to the inside and outside but the thing is when i try to
send mails with postfix apparently the exchange server wont accept
those so i cant send mails to the inside, now im trying to send with
the exchange server but i cant authenticate.

  1. is there a better solution with postfix?
  2. if not, how do i configure actionmailer to work with exchange
    server.

I don’t think the issue is specifically postfix. On a couple of
different servers, I have gotten Exchange to act as if it was a mail
server by adding an MX record for the Web server, set to such a low
priority that it won’t ever see the light of incoming mail. In one
other case, the Exchange admin was able to set a preference somewhere
that told it to accept mail from the Web server. The underlying issue
in all three cases was that the Exchange server didn’t believe that
any other machine would be sending mail from “its” domain, so it
denied it.

Ok i still havent found a solution to this, on my own or in the web, is
as
if no one has ever set actionmailer to work with exchange.

LOL, yes is true is acting as if anything from its own network is evil,
well
i can send emails outside and i added an entry in the hosts file for the
corresponding domain but postfix isnt working, and there is no info on
how
to make actionmailer connect to exchange.
