    Re: using internet domain

    You have to configure Acctepted domains in your organization and point your MX record to the Exchange 2007 server or your incoming SMTP relay have to point to the Exchange 2007 server.

    Make sure your recieve connector is configured for anonymous access.

    Overall you are probably better getting help from someone who is familar with Exchange 2007 or read the basic information provided by Microsoft, Technet would be a great source of information.

      Re: using Internet domain

      If you aren't using an Edge server then I suggest that you follow this guide for a single server setup:
      http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/20...17/431555.aspx

      The Technet guides are very good on how to configure Exchange to accept email for another domain, and there are lots of tutorials on setting up MX records for the domain.

        Re: using internet domain

        greetings!
        before doing all the changes may i present some current set-up and concerns:

        set-up
        dsl -> router -> switch
        router - 192.168.0.1
        dc - serv1.company.local - 192.1680.2
        xchange server - serv2.company.local - 192.168.0.3

        on dns
        mail exchange - [10] serv2.company.local
        ns - serv1.company.local

        some notes:

        emails thru outlook within the network is tested and working fine but
        email addresses are using @company.local

        the isp is asking for the exchange servername so i gave - serv2.company.local together with the public IP

        with that info, can we now to able to receive/send Internet Mails?
        where should i start setting up OWA too?

        thanks

          I don't know why your ISP wanted to know the name of the Exchange server. Even if they did - anything ending in .local is completely useless on the Internet.

          My previous response on how to setup the server without Edge still applies. Nothing you have stated changes that.

            Re: using internet domain

            with that done, here's my current problem & concern

            1. since users log-in to the domain, the accepted username name when setting outlook is domain\username.
            2. domain users can send email to external mails. but unfortunately the the email add of the sender is domain.local, furthermore they cant receive external mails
            3. i tried adding the another smtp external mail on the user but still cant use the desired company domain email address

            any guidance pls

              Re: using Internet domain

              If you have configured the Accepted Domain and Email address policy correctly, along with the MX records for the domain pointing to your server then it should work correctly.
              You have been through the checklist that is presented to you when you first started the management console?

                thanks for the support.. email can now be sent/received from the internet
                the remaining question is:

                how can i make my company.com domain as the default/primary smtp address:
                on my email addresses i have now 2: @domain.local and @company.com

                unfortunately, emails are sent by the default "@company.local.... if recipients reply i can receive because its @local

                    Re: using Internet domain

                    If you had followed the guides correctly then you should have created an email address policy and made it the default, where the policy is your Internet domain name. Furthermore you should also check that the policy is being applied to the users and that the user accounts are not set to ignore the policy.

                    Otherwise I would suggest getting a consultant in, because this is very basic configuration for Exchange which is documented on Technet. If you are having problems with the basics, I wonder how you will cope with the more complex configuration.

                    Simon.
