  • exchange pointed at another exchange server- help

    I'm not too good at exchange and want a mail server put into our network but the network uses an external one at present. Can I install exchange into our network and point it at the external exchange's smtp address?

    will this work?

    Reason why is we have to use an external one otherwise if we stop we get our T1 line taken away. i want to be able to control what goes on in our network and also learn about exchange so I hoped it could be installed and pointed at another external exchange.

    Yes, you can do this...

    Edit the local virtual smtp server and add the external smtp server's url or ip address as a smart host.

    Once done outbound email will go from your server to the external server to the recipient.

      Excellent

      One last question.
      Is there any posibility of network users typing in a URL and then being able to see there mail on the exchange server?

      Ive seen it done but this was with exchange 2000

          Here's what it looks like in Exchange 2003.

          If Exchange 2003 is installed on your webserver then you can access OWA by typing http://defaultwebsiteurl/exchange.
