Running Outlook over Microsoft Exchange on an NT4.0 lan with an internal email system and access to the internet through the server.  How do I write the address of someone "on the outside" from inside the Outlook mail programming.  Using SMTP?  How?

Outlook manages different types of addresses. Someone "inside" should have, in the "Properties" Dialog Box, this kind of information:

STMP: john.jones@domain.com
CCMAIL: Jones, John at DomainOne

So, when you mail someone form "inside" you write "James, John" and as MasseyM said, if you want to mail someone from "outside" you have to use "name@domain.com"

You're all right, but since the question isn't locked all add my two cents... :)

If the names haven't been check (aka Underlined) in Outlook 8.01, 8.02 the message somtimes stick's in the outbox.. The kellydg might be experiencing this..

Also, Kellydg, you must have an Internet Mail Connector created on your Exchange server, or there won't be an SMTP address space, and the Name@domain.com won't be recognized, and will go nowhere...

Hope this helps!
