  • External users with the same email domain

    Hi guys,

    I have a server running SBS 2008 with exchange 2007. I pretty much want to do workaround method 1 in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/300681 but instead, for exchange 2007.

    I use a POP3 connector to recieve emails and smtp smart host to send emails. However there are some external users have the same e-mail domain as those users in AD.

    Any ideas?

    This is what I have tried so far but was stopped by an error.

      This is the Exchange 2007 version.

      However I don't know how SBS is going to react to it. You are likely to break a large part of the SBS wizard functionality.

      You should really have all email coming in to the SBS server, then have external users collect from there, rather than an external host. Drop the POP3 connector, use Exchange as it was designed - as an SMTP host, and give everyone full functionality.

      Simon.

        Thank you very much Simon. Seems like it's working - just need to do some further testing.

        I took on this client not too long ago, I have proposed getting them off the POP3 connector but they do not want to as "everything is working fine". I cannot go ahead and do this without their permission.

        Thank you again sembee.
