Setting up Exchange 2003 to accept email from another domain

I am trying to set up Exchange 2003 to accept email from another domain. For instances my email is kserritt(at)ptstax.com but I would like for kserritt(at)ptsfinancialservices.com to also come to my box. I have tried several things but nothing seems to work. I have added the domain under the Default Policy inside the 'Recipient Policies' folder in System Manager. And I have created the email address for each user in Active Directory but it is still not working.

Thanks in advance for your help.

After adding the domain to recipient policy, is it enabled?
Did the user account get an email address automatically? If you added it to the default policy then it should have done.

Yes it is active and I went back to check, it has created the email under all the users in Active Directory. I still get this message when trying to test it.

Also are you sure that the MX record for ptsfinancialservices.com is pointing to your public IP address?

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

This is not an Exchange message:

553 sorry, relaying denied from your location [66.249.92.175] (#5.7.1)

It is being generated by something else.

To echo what has been said above, are your MX records correct, have you allowed enough time for them to propagate?

Yes I have checked my MX records they are the exact same for ptstax.com. They have been set for a little over a week. Thanks for the information. It may be the firewall I have it set up to not allow emails but from domains that I have on the accept list. I have added ptsfinancialservices.com but maybe there is something else I have over looked. I will status you guys after I have checked it.

Thanks again for the help.

I have to disagree with you on the MX records.

Running a dnsreport.com report on your domain shows the MX records are pointing to servers at a host:

0 smtp.secureserver.net. [TTL=3600] IP=64.202.166.12 (No Glue) [TTL=1154] [US]
10 mailstore1.secureserver.net. [TTL=3600] IP=64.202.166.11 (No Glue) [TTL=999] [US]

http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=ptsfinancialservices.com

That is different to the domain you claim to have copied.

10 mail.ptstax.com. [TTL=86400] IP=65.82.196.74 [TTL=86400] [US]

http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=ptstax.com

You have set the MX records with the dns registrar and not in your local Windows DNS?

Thank you very much for this. We have an outside vendor that registered our domains and he manages this stuff for us. I asked him a couple weeks ago to fix this and I asked him again a couple days ago to check it when I was having problems. I was assuming he had it correct. Thanks for double checking it for me. I will get this taken care of. I have been racking my brain on this for two days now.

Thanks again.
