    Hey everyone, as you may have recalled i was setting up an exchange server for use on the internet for the first time.
    I have set it up and i am having a few problems. This is what i have done:

    - Install exchange + iis etc on domain controller named home.local
    - Mail within the domain is working.
    - I have purchased a domain name internetdomain.info with godaddy
    - I now created a new zone in DNS named internetdomain.info and added a MX record.
    - I now have configured the recipant policy in exchange.

    Is there anything i am doing wrong?

    Re: Internet Mail

    Do you actually have a problem?
    The steps you have taken above seem fine. It can take 48 hours before a domain is fully live on the internet, as well as 48 hours for DNS changes to fully propagate.

    The only thing I can see that could be wrong is where exactly did you create the MX record? If it was in DNS on your local server, then that is the wrong place. You need to adjust the MX record using GoDaddy's web site.

          Re: Internet Mail

          Hello, am very new to exchange and mail in general. I have just configured exchange server and am able to send mail locally as well as send mail out to gmail, yahoo etc. but when I reply to the mail, i don't a reply.

          I have a public ip given to me by my isp. I have changed the mx record on my internet host hosting my www.xyz.biz to point to ip given to me by my ISP.

          I configured my dns and mx record to point to my internal ip.

          Right now I don't know whats wrong.

          Am using windows 2003 server and exchange 2003 server.

          Do I ask my isp to set the mx record on their server?

            You only need to change the MX record(s) in one location and that's on the DNS name server that is authoritative for your domain name.

            If you just recently made the change to the MX record(s), be patient as it takes some time for all other internet DNS servers to learn of the change that has been made. One tip for you, decrease the TTL time to the minimum allowed value for your MX record(s). That way, when you do make a change, the changes replicate as quickly as possible.
