Outlook 2002 & exchange Server 2003 sending problem

We are a small office that just put in a new Server with Windows Server 2003 & Exchange server 2003. I'm just new on these programs, but I'm getting along slowly. We are using Outlook 2002.

We are using an off-site mail server for the last few years, and we wish to remain so until I understand the exchange server setup better. We do want to use the calender within our office, through the exchange. I have that setup and sharing is working well.

 My problem is with the mail. I setup an exchange account and a POP3 account on everyones machine. The exchange is not setup to send & recive mail. We want the mail to go through the POP3 account. In send/recieve define settings, I setup two accounts, one for POP3, and in that account i put check marks in the send & recieve box's. The exchange account is not checked off in the send/recieve box's, but the offline box's checked for the offline use. All the accounts are disabled.

 We recieve all our mail but the sending out is a problem. If the mail is an outside address the mail will go as normal. However, anyone with an address within my exchange, the mail goes nowhere. It's not recieved and never returns unsent.

We just want to be able to use our POP3 until exchange is fully up and running.

Please give me guidence.

There is a bit easier way to do what you want...

You could setup the POP connector in Exchange so the server collects the mail from each of the external POP user accounts and deliveres messages to the appropriate user's mailbox, thus enabling Exchange throughout your organization and permitting internal email. Then delete your POP accounts on the local machines.

Sounds like you are still using .PST's - time to move off them and use the Information Store in Exchange.

Sorry I did't reply sooner. Still working on it. I removed all my PST folders.  I have figured out that if the email name is in my global list the mail never goes out.

I went back and took off all the email extenions, then the mail went out.

I have not setup a POP in exchange.

I don't want to use exchange for mail yet, just the calender and thats interoffice. So I still use may POP3 account,  setup in the E-mail accounts on all our machines. Most of our machines are Laptops and go home and use dial-up.

But after I took the email extenions off the user profiles the mail goes out. This could be solved somewhere else I think. Because may global list is no good for emails

Seems you keep "breaking" exchange in order to make it work. When you do migrate to using the Information store, you're going to have a lot of rebuilding to do.

You can easily set the notebooks to use outlook synchronization, so that when the user's disconnect from the network, they take an offline copy of their email with them... otherwise... how are you backing their email up?

I'm using the offline with the synchronization and that works well. I think I have to setup POP on my server but I'm not sure where to put my POP3 mail site,  he holds our domain name and all are email accounts (mail.frogstar.com is our ISP) I can't setup mine because the  @***.ca would be the same.  

I just don't want our's on line and have everyone on me like fly's on a Cow when things arn't going right!!!!!

Is there a place in exchange server to put a ISP in to work for us until I feel more safe with what I am doing.

thanks
