Exchange Question

Hi I have the following problem, I have an external hosting company that hosts my mail, I have over 100 pop3 e-mail accounts with them, even though I am only using about 15 now.

We are expanding and management wants to set up an exchange server in house to download messages from that external hosting company and the relay them to the correct users. Got a connector, been ther done that, people are receiving mail.

BIG problem, people can't send mail. The outlook client show the mail as sent but it never reaches the destination.  I know it has to do with the smtp servers but I can't get them to work. If you could please help me use this. Oh, and my smtp server that is hosted externally needs authentication by a user to send the e-mail so I need you to consider that into the solution as well.

There is nothing showing up in the queues so Idont know what to do or where to check.

Thank you very much

sounds like the mail server is preventing relaying.   can you set up to email addresses on the exchange server and send mail to them?  personally I would remove the hosting company and just forward the MX record to your exhange server.  this way everything is controlled by you...

I would very much like to control everything, however it is not possible due to restrictions not worth explaining.

Thanks anyway

I'm not even sure I configured it correctly, could you provide steps on how to do this, or a link perhaps.

Thanks

It's exchange 2003, let me see those guides, what I can't configure, or i guess I can't is the relaying.

Thanks again

is your pop3 provider also your ISP or just your web host? if not you may have to use your ISP's outgoing mail server. i know verizon does this sort of thing.

if your ISP is your mail providor you ARE going to have to use their SMTP server.

You might try going to Exchange System Manager and down into you Default SMTP virtual servers properties and clicking on Access tab - then the Relay option then click add and put the domain info for the relay you need to do.
