I'm trying to finish up my exchange environment and have run into a couple of problems.
We basicly brought our e-mail inhouse, never using the domain name we now have for exchange. We used @qwest pop3 accounts. We're trying to move over and still continue to receive our existing e-mail. Here's my problems.
It appears something is wrong with the way we relay e-mail. A number of people were getting error messages because locally our priority order of sending e-mail was set up to send to exchange, then exchange remote transport and then the pop server hosted by our ISP. If I change this around and put the pop server first our undeliverables are minimized, but still occur. Based on the information I have told you and assuming we want to keep our existing accounts what is the best way to set this up and respond very detailed.
1) Please tell me if the accounts should be set up locally on each machine or can the pop server account be created on the exchange server?
2) What order should the outlook client be set up on to send messages?
3) On the exchange server exactly how does the SMTP virtual server need to be set up?
4) On the exchange server exactly how many and what kinds of smtp connectors need to be set up?
5) Do any other connectors need to be set up to work?
Thanks guys I know there are a lot of questions and they may be related, but I'm offering the maximum amount of points to get this resolved.
I'm getting all kinds of messages that are undeliverable for various reasons. For instance I have intermittent problems sending to a qwest account in
