Gatt (31st July 2009)
You aren't still running an Exchange 2003 server in parallel are you? That bugged me for a few weeks when I added Ex2k7 and Edge to the list.
Edge server's are handy, basically they sit at the Edge (shock horror!) and filter all the crap before it reaches anyone's mailbox, we're using one here and it's very swish, it doesn't add any overhead to the other boxes handling mail rules it does other things obviously, transport rules etc, but we're using it as a spam filter ultimately.
Quite a few of Microsoft's products now come with an Edge functionality, OCS being the other I can think of immediately.
No its a brand new network & domain - no trace of E2k3 anywhere
Think I'm gonna rebuild the ISA server on Monday and see if that helps...
Always worth checking, your Anti-Virus isn't blocking the Transport service/executables is it?
I took teh software firewall and AV out of the equation completely while I feebly attempted to understand the complexities of Exchange.
Being able to connect to your smart host from either any PC in the domain or your ISA/Exchange box is a given...
It'd be worth verifying your Send Connector is setup correctly and if you think it is, start playing with it until the b~%&$úd works!
I believe, I can't remember, that our Send Connector provides our Smart Host in response to HELO/EHLO as well being listed as "route through the following smart host" option...
On a side note: mmmmmm Jaffa Cakes.
I must admit i had a few problems with ISA 2006 to start with but got their in the end.
@ GATT if you want i will send you over a copy of our config and you can take a look at that it might help you solve the problem. our setup is also through a smarthost
Cheers mate - it may be useful
No Prob, If i can get it tonight or over the weekend i will depending on how my VPN copes if not i'll email them first thing monday morning.
It's not like your smoothwall box is it with int/ext being the same subnet? as it will think that the server it's trying to contact is in it's local subnet and not use the router.
erm - not sure - though the ext NIC is "outside" ISA's range
A genius? or some guy who suffered the same mistake.....twice!
Is there an entry on getting OWA to work thru ISA
There is a wizard you can follow mate
On the Tasks Pane, Click on Publish Email Server or something along the lines of that (cant check here aint got ISA)
If you use that, it will also complete the appropriate paths etc as well
Done that - but as in another post - I get stuck in a login loop externally
Oh yeah! hmm
You know what mate Email me tomorrow morning, i'll send you our rules over you can then just import them see what that does when you throw it in the works lol
btw, what Authentication you using again? have you made sure you have got the same authentication set on Exchange as on ISA (Remember you have to change it using the managment shell)
