DNS entry for external domain name

Posted on 2006-05-01

I need some serious help with DNS.  I have a 2003/2000 AD.  We are able to send email to most places. I can't send it to one address.  If I try to send an email to the address from outside our network, like hotmail, yahoo, sbcglobal, they get it without a problem.  I don't know what type of record I need to add to the DNS.  Do I need to add a new Forward lookup zone, or what.  I know that we can't access the website or anything else.  Our network service says that it isn't with our firewall, it's with our internal DNS.

I am grateful for any help you can give me.

    I solved my problem.  I was looking at the default SMTP virtual server and the external DNS servers were pointed to the internal ones.  I should've checked this before.  I think I even found my ID-10-T form as well.  

    Long story short, I'm stepping into an AD network that is setup like some Winnt 3.51 hillbilly administrator just decided to setup AD without any planning or concept of it.  (Not that I'm much better, LOL!)  

    Thanks for the help.

    Forum admin, can you give these guys that helped me the points?  They deserve it for helping me.
