  • How to connect two exchange servers

    This forum helped me to install the exchange server. Now i stuck at somewhere. I installed exchange 2003 on Windows server 2003 on 2 diffrent domains abc.com and xyz.com. I want to connect my two exchange servers so anyone can send mail to each other

    My first domain configuration is
    Domain name - abc.com
    FQDN Names - mail.abc.com
    ip - 192.168.1.1
    gateway - 192.168.1.1
    dns - 192.168.1.1

    I setup forward and reverse lookup zones for FQDN name and succesfully resolves the hostname to ip and ip to hostname
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Second domain config is
    Domain name - xyz.com
    FQDN Names - mail.xyz.com
    ip - 192.168.1.2
    gateway - 192.168.1.2
    dns - 192.168.1.2

    Dns configured to resolve host names

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I made smtp connector and address space on both side
    In abc
    SMTP - Forward all mails to [192.168.1.2]
    Brighead server: MAIL
    Address Space : xyz.com
    Recieptent policy address space : @xyz.com

    In xyz
    SMTP - Forward all mails to [192.168.1.1]
    Brighead server : MAIL.
    Address space : abc.com
    Recieptent policy address space : @abc.com


    Now if [email protected] sends mail to [email protected] then receives a undeliver message. I also make trust in between xyz.com and abc.com but nothing helped
    I m confused

    Trust has nothing to do with it.
    Can the two servers telnet to each other on port 25?
    Have you created an SMTP connector for all internet email? That will mean you have two connectors.
    What does the NDR say?

      Thanks Sembee
      The problem was i also edited the receiptent policy and includes the SMTP Domain of other domain and also my firewall was blocking the port 25.

        Domain xyz.com receives the mail from abc.com but when xyz.com send the mail to abc.com nothin happens either xyz doesnt receives the un deliver message. abc.com gets the mail only from their user. They can telnet each other on port 25.

          Email doesn't just drop in to the ether.
          It will be there somewhere.

          Message tracking will tell you what Exchange did with the message, where it was delivered to.
