We are currently running Exch 2000 server. I've created a public folder, have enabled mail and propagated all properties to public folder. I am able to receive internal email to the public folder but not receiving inbound email to the public folder. When I try to send mail from an ie. yahoo acct to this public folder's smtp address, i was able to track the email through the SMTP gateway to the Exchange server the public folder is located on.
Tracking event of the mail per the message tracking in Systems Mgr shows the following -
msg submitted to advanced queuing
started msg submission to advanced queuing
message submitted to categorizer
message delivered locally to email@example.com
non-delivered report (NDR) generated.
What am i missing in setting up this public folder? Why did the inbound mail go through to the server but not get routed to the actual public folder.
