Exchange 2003 outgoing mail problem.
Posted on 2004-08-04
I have an SBS 2003 server.
Clients are running Outlook 2000 until i get them upgraded to outlook 2003.
We just switched over to Exchange 2003 from Exchange 5.5
The exchange 5.5 server i didn't set up, so i'm not sure if anything was done to make this work or not, but here is what is happening.
In Outlook 2000, there is not an account selection like there is in exchange 2003.
The exchange server is used for internal email, and then each user has an email account with our ISP for external email.
When the users send mail, some of the messages are hanging in the exhchnge queue and not getting outside of the network.
The server's name is "oxford.local". Is there a way to set for all exchange users from the server a default smtp server to use if the domain does not match oxford.local?
Or could there be something else causing this problem?
Thanks in advance,
