Exchange 2003 and GFI Mail Essentials mail delivery problem ????

Hi Experts,

This is the scenario,

I have installed AD/Exchange 2003. We have external hosted email server, say www.abcd.com. My internal AD domain is abcd.local

I have change the SMTP domain in all exchange user from Exchange System Manager >> Recipient >> Recipient Policies >> Email Policy to SMTP @abcd.com

When I creating a new user now exchange is automatically change the user email domain as abcd.com...there was no issue.

After that I have installed GFI Mail Essentials latest version and it’s taken my both domains as abcd.local and abcd.com while the installation process. I want to donwload mail from external email server and deliver to the Exchange mail boxses.

But in the GFI pop2exchange is not delivering the emails to the relevant user mail boxes. Its passing the email to alternative email address provided.

Log says: None of the address in the email headed is in local domain list. Recipient set to alternate address.

Please advice ASAP.

Thanks !

Two options.

A)  Configure Mail Essentials to only be responsible for the abcd.com domain only.  If you right click on "General" in the configurator you have a tab titled "Local Domains."  Configure this so that only abcd.com is in there.

B) The default user@abcd.local is not accesible ouside the network so it's irrelevant of this exists or not.  You could simply re-add this as an additional SMTP domain in Recipient policies (users can have multiple SMTP address's.)


Both methods should get you working again.
