HELP WITH MX RECORD SWITCH!!
Posted on 2006-10-19
I need some help please.
WHen our company was first setup, we used ValueWeb for mail hosting, all of our mail was delivered there, and we simply checked and sent using Outlook.
About a year ago, we got Small Business Server 2003, including MS Exchange. However, the email configuration didnt change much.. just that we now all had exchange email boxes which we didnt really check.. we just kept our current mail on ValueWeb, and continued to check it through outlook.
NOW, i have gone and changed my MX Record at Valueweb, so that all mail goes to my Exchange server, rather than valueweb. There are two domains for this company, and I have changed both their records so that they point to my Static IP.
It is my understanding that all mail going to either domain will be sent to my server, and then I can choose how to rout it locally.. (i.e. mailboxes..)
HERES THE PROBLEM:
I am not able to recieve any mail.. i dont know why. I am relatively new at this "Administering Exchange" thing.. so I would appreciate some help.. QUICKLY!!
I can send mail no problem.. it works like a champ!!
But I cannot get any in from an outside source...
NOTE!! I CAN get email if sent in-office.. (from one domain user to another).. not leaving the domain.
How do i get my outside email delivered to my exchange mailboxes?!?!??
I have added all the address to my "Email Addresses" tab of the Active Directory.
- Thank you.
