Hi everyone, please forgive but I am a novice.  I have a DELL Poweredge 830 running SBS 2003.  I decided to use BT Business Broadband as our hosted email exchange server instead of our dell + sbs2003 server.  

What I want to know is, do I need to configure our Dell server????

When i look at user settings it shows the different email address's to those which we actually use.  The exchange detils our different on our server as if our server has assumed we are going to use it for outllok 2003 exchange email and has populated the fields in user settings.

Do I need to match our user and email settings to indicate we are using the BT hosted exchange???  

Just for the record everyones emails work perfectly.  However, I have a windows application which tries to send emails using our server.  This then fails.

Any questions or thoughts would be most grateful.

Cheers

Ollie

First, can you configure the Windows application to specify which server to send through? If so, you could simply set that as the hosted server rather than your own.

Second, yes the email addresses of the users in their profiles should match their actual email addresses. If that is different than what is in their user information then you should change that. You might also be able correct the default policy to include the correct nomenclature if the different part is in the domain name, etc.

That aside, I sounds like Exchange on your server is set up using your email domain name. It therefore presumes that it is responsible for email on that domain. This is set in the recipient policy. If the policy is set up with that domain name and the box for responsible for all mail to this domain is checked, then it will only attempt local delivery and then fail. You can try unchecking that box and see if it works. If not you may need to make some configuration changes. Are there any local mailboxes configured on that exchange server or is exchange merely active on the server and not really doing anything other than relaying mail?
