Oulook setup to return proper FQDN for Exchange
Posted on 2006-07-15
When I setup exchange on my outlook client I want the place where you type in the exchange server to be the FQDN on my mail server from the internet. This way I can use cached mode and connect to my exchange server from the internet instead of having to be on the lan.
When I type in my external mail dot com it resolves back to the local name for my server plus my local domain (windows) as a suffix. I put another zone in my dns for my external dot com and created the appropriate records to mimic what the internet would do except I used my local IP address instead of my external IP address that I used on my register.com DNS setup to point mail to my server.
I would like in the outlook setup when I press the "Check Name" button to resolve mail.(domain).com external address instead of (servername).(domain).local local address. How do I do this?
Thank you in advance,
