Hi all,

I have a situation where a Win2K domain with Exchange has both domain.com internal and external users.  The internal users get their mail from a GFI POP2Exchange service on the Exchange server.  The external users are not within the main branch and they simply POP their mail directly from the ISP.  The problem that I meet is that all mail sent from internal domain users to the external users will be kept internally in the Exchange DB and never be sent to the outside ISP.  I know that there is a quick fix to this either using a policy or a DNS entry for these external users but I need to be guided in a step-by-step procedure to make the fix...

Thanks guys!

J.D.

Hi J.D.

I would fix the problem in another way.

Let all the mail from your domain be delivered at you mailserver. Then you can see how much e-mails traffic is being generated. Then tell the external users to change their pop3 servers and smtp servers ip address in your mailservers. This is a better way of working with Exchange. Else, you could better not use an exchange server and let all of the mailboxen stay at your ISP. Then the mail will always be delivered, because it goes to your ISP...
