Cant Receive SMTP Mails - Exchange 2003


Hi folks,

 I am having an issue with exchange receiving smtp mail.
It is a new setup so im not sure if its related to dns/mx records or so.

My server is mydomain.local, and my email is "support@mydomain.ie"
I have the receipients set up as follows

SMTP @mydomain.ie
SMTP @mydomain.local
X4..

I am sending mails fine and they are appearing at destination ok.

I registered my domain and I gave them my static IP, they informed me the are pointing to my static IP.
I setup the follwing in - default smtp virtual server - delivery - advanced -> Fully Qualified Domain name -> set it to server name. Checked telnet mail.server.domain 25 and I got back 220 Mail etc.  I checked this from the server and not an another Pc.

I previusly used exchange pop3 connector, so this is my first time using exchange to host own mail.
Hope somone can help
Regards
Stephen

Use nslookup to check if hotmail is resolved correct.
And how are mails to other domainsnames send?

can you connect to external server through smtp domain name 25 from the exchange server.

Good luck,

Walter

Your DNS is probably set incorrectly.

For inbound messages, go to dnsreport.com and enter your domain name. That will report back what the internet sees and whether there are any issues.
You should also ensure that DNS is set correctly: http://www.amset.info/exchange/dns-config.asp
