  • Exchange 2007: able to send but unable to get emails

    Hello.

    I'm configuring an Exchange 2007 in a company that has the emails hosted with the site in a standard hosting server.
    I installed Exchange using typical setup without Edge Transport server since they only have 1 server with SBS 2008 and did the following:
    - Put the mail server for the site as an accepted domain with authorative type;
    - Created the send connector using SmartHost for the smtp server of the site;

    - As reception server, I created 3 connectors:
    . Internet with the Server IP for the local IP's on port 25 and receiving emails from all remote servers ( I have allowed anonymous users )
    . Internal with Server IP for the local IP's and the LAN scope (192.168.2.1 till 192.168.2.255) on remote servers
    . Client with Server IP for the local IP's on port 587 and accepting all remote servers
    - Default connectors are disabled

    I'm able to send emails either to internal or external emails. But I'm unable to receive external emails although I'm able to receive emails from other domain users. It seems that somehow the server is not searching for emails outside.

    Can anybody help me on this?

    Thanks.

    I guess "emails hosted with the site in a standard hosting server" means they have some type of POP accounts, you have to configure the POP3 connector from SBS in order to get this mails, refer to the following link:

      If this is SBS 2008, why didn't you run the wizards? You shouldn't have configured things manually because SBS likes to do things in its own way.
      I think you have over complicated matters by creating additional connectors and disabling the default (why do that anyway?) Run through the SBS wizards to configure the server, and then use the fix my network wizard if required to resolve further issues as they occur.

      While Exchange 2007 on SBS 2008 looks like Exchange 2007, behaves like Exchange 2007 and is managed to some degree like Exchange 2007, it should be treated in the way that it was designed and that is, surprise surprise, configured using the wizards. Not using the wizards will just end up in a huge amount of pain, and you will end up running the wizards anyway.

        Thanks, FischFra and Sembee.

        I was used to Exch 2003 and somehow got stucked with 2007, it seems too different, including the Shell.

        The reply from FischFra enligthened me on this and allowed me to get things working.

        Thanks once again for your replies.
