Exchange Server for Internal Mail Only, Pop for External
Posted on 2005-04-20
I have 2 clients who have Exchange 2000 Servers that they want to use for internal functions and internal email only. They have an external pop server through their websites that they want to download mail from and have process their outgoing internet mail. But they want their Exchange server to process email for internal email addresses and they want to store any downloaded mail in their Exchange mailboxes.
So, I set them up with Outlook XP and Outlook 2003. They have accounts setup on Exchange and their external email accounts, with the external accounts set as default.
One of them has a continuous problem of emails being bounced by their Exchange Server saying it could not be delivered. These email addresses are external and should not be going to the Exchange server. They also have the problem that when emails do go to internet email addresses, the people who reply to those messages get an error because the reply address is firstname.lastname@example.org
I would much appreciate help on this.
