Win2003SBS Issues w/Exchange-E-mail, Outlook, Win XP all on network
Posted on 2004-04-24
Ok here's my issues and questions:
Currently setup outlook to use exchange for all users I can receive mail fine and send mail to anyone except anyone that has an e-mail address on our domain. Example our e-mail is hosted through our website host, exchange is setup to use the pop3 connector that works fine now say I want to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (help.com being our domain the server domain is a .local) if the person I am sending an e-mail to is not setup as a user on the server the e-mail comes back rejected. If they are setup as a user it just puts the e-mail into their exchange mailbox and never sends it out. We have other people outside the office that have e-mail accounts that will not be listed as a user on the server how can I change it so that it will send the e-mail out of the server and not just keep it internally? I do not have any problems sending e-mail to any other addresses just the ones that end on our e-mail domain and only from my outlook through exchange.
Next issue I keep changing my Outlook setting to not allow an offline folder and change the location of my .ost file (computer using winXP Pro and roaming profile) I can close Outlook and reopen fine but once I log off the server and back on the changes are gone. I am also having a similar problem with the server under the users I have changed a users e-mail address hit apply etc. but once I log off and log back on the e-mail address has changed back to the previous how can I fix these two issues?
Next issue I have installed Norton antivirus corporate edition on the server and client computers (all client computers are running winXP pro) I cannot run the live update on the server it gives me an error saying that it cannot connect but internet access is on the server (we have a T1 and the server is also used as the router). I am also having a problem installing the Norton on one of the client computers it starts to install then I get a message that says something like "go to the control panel to install and configure system components" I click ok the install stops and nothing happens, try to start the install again it says that you cannot have more than one copy running at a time. I am logged onto this computer as the local admin.
This last issue is a licenseing type issue, the version of server 2003 sbs I have just installed and am using is the 180day evauluation copy. It looks like it has 5 client licenses if we decide to keep server 2003 after we evauluate it I would want the licencsing to be per user not computer is that hard to change? Also is it hard to go from the evaul. version to a fully licensed version in terms of setting up and moving settings etc. so I do not have go through all of this config and setup again?
