Hi Expert,

I use Exchange server 5.5 for my email server. I have created user@domain.com and it's already been worked out and done. Now I want to create the user@subdomain.domain.com I have tried to configure  and setted up in the DNS Manager NT using A and MX record. and also set to inbound in the Internet Mail Service. But it's still won't work at all. I mean I can sent using the user@subdomain.domain.com but when I tried using my hotmail sent to user@subdomain.domain.com, it's look like never succeeded. it resulted as a Unknown Host. Why is this happen?? is it means that there's something wrong with the DNS? What should I try to configure in the Exchange?

Have you asked the people who look after your domain name to add the sub-domain to your dns records.
If not thi swont work externally (or your domain).

If you have you need to go into
Exchange Admin
In the left pane selct the following

Connections  >>  Configuration  >>  Internet mail >>  Right click >> properties  >>  then go to the routing tab >> Select add  >> type in domain details  i.e  123.abc.com  >>  then ensure that on the bottom you have selected "Should be accepted as inbound"

Save all settings and restart either your machine
Or the Mail service  >> Open a Dos Window  >  then type the following

net stop "Microsoft Exchange nternet Mail Service"
then type
net start "Microsoft Exchange nternet Mail Service"


Hope this helps
