Exchange 2003 incoming and outgoing email problem
Posted on 2005-03-17
i recently installed exchange 2003 on my sbs 2003. I change the port number to 500 for smtp since my isp is blocking port 25. so i use no-ip to reflect all my trafic to port 500.
i created a mx record on my own pointing the same server ( but i selected the external ip on dns).
I tested Smtp using:
telnet mydomain.net 500 (500 is the smtp port i use)
and i got response for everycomand
mail from: firstname.lastname@example.org
rcpt to: email@example.com
when i configure my outlook to connect to the exchange server using the firstname.lastname@example.org account i dont see any mail. I also sent a couple of mail from my hotmail account and nothing
i ran nslookup to see my mx record and thi is what i got:
mydomain.net mx preference = 10 , mail exchanger = mydomain.net
mydomain.net internet address = 192.168.0.1
mydomain.net internet address = 192.168.0.24
mydomain.net internet address = 192.168.1.97
mydomain.net internet address = (my external ip)
if i use
then type server (external ip)
i get this:
server (external ip)
default server: adsl-065-006-200-104.sip.mia.bellsouth.net
then when i type
***adsl-065-006-200-104.sip.mia.bellsouth.net cant find mydomain.net: no response from server.
Any clue what can i do to send receive mail using my exchange 2003?
