How do I get the internet to end up at my isa?  How do I tie my IP address to the domain name?  These articles will be real helpful once mail is forwarded to my isa server.

Night Monkey,
     Hello and thanks for the help.  Especially at 5 am.  I guess I have not asked my question correctly.

What/how do I tell network solutions to route my mail traffice to my isa server?

unless you are hosting your own external dns, you need to talk to whoever is hosting it for you. for instance, if you have dsl and you're using the isp's dns servers, then you need to tell them. i hope i understood your question correctly this time. you're right. it is late. and i should be sleeping. =)

sorry about all of the confusion. it is late, and i didn't read your question as carefully as i should have. i think i undersand now what you wanted to know, and my previous answer should be what you're looking for.

as long as you have a static ip, and there are no restrictions in place from your isp for hosting your own email, you shouldn't have any problems. your isp has to create an mx record for your exchange server on their dns servers.


is that what you wanted to know?

good night, man.
