MS Exchange on SBS 2003

I can download my mail using the POP3 connector on SBS2003 but when I send the server creates virtual SMTP queues and the email just sits there. I have put the IP address of my mailbox as the address to forward  email after trying my POP3 address and 'use DNS to route email' to no avail but it asks for a local bridgehead to which I have used my local server name (had no other option). Has anyone had this problem? I've set up SBS on another server and I never had this problem.

Hiya

you will need to set up an SMTP connector for outbound mail if you haven't got one already - set domain as * (ie all mail) and if you have your ISP's details for SMTP servers add them into the smarthost section of the SMTP Connector.

you will obviously need to allow SMTP out through ISA as well

Did you run the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard in the To Do list to finish up your Server Installation?  That is how email is configured properly.  For more info please see this:  http://www.12c4pc.com/sbs2k3/sbs2k3-n2.htm for a step-by-step explaination.

THe link was great but I finally found out that my ISP IP address was what I was looking for, only problem is cos they don't support DNS my email might be treated as junk mail

Ah... I've had that problem as well... when I used to have a dynamic IP address with Comcast.  I resolved the problem by routing the email through the server where my web site resides... but ultimately the best solution was to get a static IP.
