I've been trying to figure out how to get this done now for over two weeks and I can't seem to get it done. I thought I had enough information after posting a previous question at:
Unfortunately, I was aimed in the right direction, but have since lost any forward momentum toward a solution. ReadyHosting.com is currently our public email host and we have put a new SBS 2003 Exchange Server online. We are trying to get the public email integrated into our local server and ReadyHosting.com is asking me the following:
"If you would like to request changes to this domain's dns file you will need to tell me what those changes are.
Please specify what dns record you would like changed and what you would like it changed to.
Please send those requests to firstname.lastname@example.org"
My problem is I don't know what exactly I'm supposed to specify or how to format the request for the necessary changes. I know from Q_21150423 that I need to modify DNS and MX records, and I would...if I only had a brain.
I tried SBS 2003 MS Connector for POP3, which worked great after I figured out ReadyHosting.com doesn't support SPA, but I can't allow the use of clear text credentials. They suggested that, "If that is something that you have to use, you will want to use your isp's smtp settings instead of ours." We have SBC Business DSL, but that's about all I know about that and need more information to understand if this suggestion is even an option. Does this mean I would have to register mydomain.com with SBC instead of ReadyHosting.com?
I have configured Recipient Policies on the Exchange Server for email@example.com as well as internal mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, but no public email makes it to the SBS 2003 Exchange.
DNS direct is better than MS Connector for POP3 from what I can tell. However, if I had SPA support from my email host, I already know I can pull that rabbit out of the hat. Right now, all I have is a head ache!
I could really use a hand...
Thanks in advance,
