  • new xchange installation

    greetings!

    just new to xchange. self study. pls guide.

    i got a win2k adv server connected to a dlink dsl modem/router. got a public ip and a registered domain name. i have about 50 clients on my domain.

    i want to use xchange as our email system and enable email address related to our domain name. eg. [email protected]. our website is hosted on our isp not on our server.

    where do i start and recommendation. i plan to install xchange on a new pc with win2k adv server.

    thanks

    Hi Koroknoy, welcome to Petri.co.il

    After you have set up exchange and tested it works internally, talk to your ISP to get their public MX records pointing to your public IP
    Set up forwarding on the router to send port 25 (SMTP) to the IP of your exchange server.
    All incoming emails will be routed to the exchange server

    Outgoing mail can be routed by DNS or (recommended) to a relay server at your ISP -- talk to them about it.

    How is your email handled now? plan your migration strategy carefully.

                Please tell us what your prolem is. It's not that you have a very complicated infrastructure, it's just one server, right? So why not just start the SETUP program and follow the wizard?
                Cheers,
