Using Exchange Functionality within a Local Domain

In thread Q_21054181.html you will find exactly what I am looking to accomplish, but I don't see a clear solution.  I am interested in setting up exchange under a local domain.  This local domain is not seem by the Internet.  We have an ISP today that maintains our POP3 email accounts.  My problem is, once I installed Exchange 2003 my outlook client can't not replay to received emails.  We can send new emails ok, but replys and forwards sit in the outbox and eventually receive the message 0x8004210B.  Note we can send emails that are new, just can't reply.  We truly just want to use calendar, shared folders, and contacts within exchange.  We really don't want the headaches associated with sending and receiving emails via Exchange.

Can you point us in the right direction to either bypass exchange for sending emails or fix the problem we are having?

I have followed the suggestions in Q_21054181.html and they are have not helped our situation.

Our environment consists of 5 workstations running XP and a Win 2003 Server SBS running Exchange 2003.  We are connected to the internet via DSL.

None of these problems exist if we remove the exchange server.

I have already installed all SP for OS and Outlook.  Problem still exists.  Why can I send NEW emails but not reply or forward?  We are using Outlook 2003 PS2.

Exchange is an EMAIL server.
Everything else is basically bolt ons to that functionality.
As such, as soon as you configure Exchange in Outlook, it over rides everything else. Outlook will attempt to send email via Exchange. If you stop trying to fight that functionality, then life becomes much easier.

At the least you need to configure Exchange as if it is responsible for all email that you send and receive, so that it can send email correctly. That will get round the problems for sending email. If messages do go out via Exchange then they will be delivered correctly.

Considering that you are on a DSL connection, having Exchange responsible for your email delivery and sending is much better than getting the ISP to do it. The "headaches" aren't that great and it will give you a much better end user experience.

Granular recovery for Microsoft Exchange

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

Am I going to have a problem letting Exchange send and receive email if my domain is local?  My exchange server is not seen by the Internet.  Is Exchange going to be able to send emails via my ISP's SMTP server without any problems?  What do I have to do to set this up?

SembeeCommented:
As this is an SBS, you need to use the Internet Mail wizard (or whatever its exact name is). Step through the wizard, giving it your real domain name (so domain.com or whatever) when it prompts for it.
It should then ask you if you need to send email through the ISP. Accept that option and put in the ISPs SMTP Server.

The key thing with SBS is that it isn't like regular Exchange. You must use the wizards for everything, otherwise something will break. The wizards are well designed and will do all the settings for you.

Also, we have users that have private POP3 accounts and we allow them to utilize access this accounts at work.  So, in some cases a user may have a many as 5 POP3 accounts.   How do I set Exchange to send emails for all POP3 accounts?

SembeeCommented:
Exchange is one account, one user, one email address.

If these private POP3 accounts are not on your own internet domain, then you will be unable to get Exchange to allow messages to be sent out as those addresses.

Your best option would be to use Outlook Express for private POP3 accounts and Outlook for business email. This is what I have done at clients where private email is allowed on company machines.

So, do I understand that it is not possible to have an Outlook profile with POP3 accounts and Exchange?  Why would MS give you the option to define all three if it wasn't possible?  Back to my original question, why can I send NEW emails via my POP3 accounts while attached to Exchange and not beable to send Replys or Forwards via the same POP3 account?

SembeeCommented:
It is possible to have POP3 accounts and Exchange.

What you have to do is separate the sending and receiving of email.

You can have as many accounts as you like to receive email in Outlook. POP3, Exchange, whatever you like.
However you can only have one DEFAULT account for sending email. When the client has been configured for Exchange, it will be the Exchange account.

The full version of Outlook doesn't make a very good POP3 account manager when it has been configured for Exchange and POP3 accounts - as such Outlook Express is much better as that is what it is designed for.

Any idea why new emails can be sent via a POP3 account?  Replys and Forwards don't leave the outbox.  The exchange account is defined and is not the default, the pop3 is the default.  When we look at the sent emails they are sent via the SMTP server defined to the outlook profile.  The header doesn't indicate anything about exchange.  

Any insight as to why replys and forwards don't go would be greatly appreciated.
