I have just installed a Windows 2003 DC and a Exchange 2003 member server. All went well with the installation and I am able to access the Exchange server webmail via http:\\servername\Exchange
. I have attempted to do this from the Exchange server itself and the DC just to test functionality.
When I go to this web address, it prompts me for a valid domain account and password, and when authenticated, open the webmail screen. I then went and tried creating a test message, getting a name from the GAL, and hit the Send button. The message disappeared but it never arrives in the recipients mailbox, nor does it appear in my sent items folder. Instead, it goes to the "Drafts" folder of the account I have sent it from.
Am I unable to perform this task from the server itself or is there something wrong with the configuration of Exchange?
