  • SBS2003 Exchange POP3 Reply Address

    So...

    The company I work for wants to try Exchange with their current POP3 provider. I have been testing it with my personal account and have run into a snag.

    Their AD domain is .DOMAIN.local so when I send mail through exchange it uses the [email protected]l address for the reply address and the senders address.

    I changed the e-mail address setting on my users general information tab to the correct .com domain. This works and all my outgoing mail has the correct sender address and reply address. However I cannot receive ANY incoming mail.

    I ran through the POP3 Connector Manager a couple of times to make sure there isn't anything I missed.

    Lost.

    EDIT1: I ran through the CEICW again and made some changes. Still no luck. I found another forum with a couple answers but have not found anything solid yet.

    IMHO forget POP3 and use SMTP email with correctly set up MX records delivering direct to your mail server.

    Do senders get bounce messages? If so, where is it happening?

    Have you checked logs etc to see if mail is getting into the server?

      With my level of skill, I would rather have someone else hold our email for now.

      The senders do not get bounce messages. The messages come into exchange and sit in the inbound mail folder as undeliverable. The mail is definately getting into the server, but is not being routed to the correct box.

        The POP3 connector is meant as an interim solution until you get on to SMPT and you own domain name. If you ran the CEICW and you told it your domain name is <company>.co.il then the mail will be sent out as <user>@<company>.co.il as that will be their primary mail address. Otherwise use the ISP's mails server as a regular POP3 account and it will be sent as <POP3user>@<ISP's domain>.
        TIA
