Need information on how to transition from an ISP hosted email service to local SBS2003 Exchange Server email service
Posted on 2004-09-29
I have an ISP based email host and a registered domain name that I would like to convert over to the new SBS 2003 Exchange Server I'm putting online.
How do you get email to the new server instead of the ISPs? Or better yet, have the server interact with the ISP email host so the mail is on the web and the local server.
The SBS 2003 is set up with a name like mydomain.local name whereas the registered domain name is like mydomain.com. How does this get reconciled at the server level so mail and remote web services can find the server by name? Or is it better to use the sticky IP address instead?
