    Exchange 2003 - Some questions from a total newb

    Ok Ive now managed to get Exchange 03 up and running in a 2003 R2 VM. Its working, and I can sent and recieve mail. OWA is working as well.

    Email when I sent it comes from user@testdomain.local which is what my domain is.

    How would I go about setting it up so that the Exchange server would handle the mail for user@myinternetdomain.co.uk, but still the local machines etc log on to just the .local domain?

    And also, is an Exchange server able to handle the mail for multiple real internet domains?

    Thanks

    To do this you need to edit the default recipient policy to include the domain name that you want to send and recive from. You can also use this policy to allow exchange to handle multiple domains.

    Configure Exchange 2003 Server
    Configure Exchange 2000/2003 to Receive E-Mail for other Domains
    Implementing Custom Recipient Policies

    Right sweet, seems to be working.. sending from the new real domain anyway.. not tried adding a new pop account to thunderbird yet..

    What do I need to do to the main DNS records of the internet domain, is it just the MX records I need to update with the WAN IP of the exchange server, and forward ports 25 and 110 to the exchange box?

    Yes, it is just the MX record to direct the email in from the outside. MX records have to be pointed at named records though so you will need to set it to point to smtp.yourdomain.com or mail.yourdomain.com then add a subdomain of the name you choose pointing to your external IP. You can even just point it to www.yourdomain.com or yourdomain.com if these point at your WAN IP. Add the port 25 mapping and your done, you only need 110 if you are going to be checking the email remotely with pop3.

    I cant seem to get the pop service to start in exchange. It says that the service didnt start in a timely fashion, and to check the event logs, but I cant see anything untoward.
