Exchange & SMTP forwarding with POP3 connector
Posted on 2007-04-03
I am trying to achieve the following:
I have SBS 2003 setup, with Exchange 2003 SP2.
Due to the fact the domain is a local domain & not a FQDN, I am using the native POP3 connector to poll for messages from my ISP accounts & forward them to my Exchange mailboxes. This works without any issues.
The problem arises when I try to send messages from Outlook. By default, it wont send an email from the Exchange account due to the fact it isnt a FQDN. To get around this, I added my main ISP email account to each Outlook profile (on a laptop, desktop & PDA), and configured the send/receive options to only send from the ISP email address. I then set the default mail account to the ISP account.
This works until I log off or restart the profile, then Exchange seems to reset the default account to be the Exchange mailbox.
I tried adding my ISP SMTP server to each user profile in SBS 2003. I then noticed since I did that, I wasnt getting any emails. I checked Event Viewer, and am getting the following warnings:
Source: POP3 Connector
Event ID: 1070
"An attempt to relay e-mail to recipient <*******@*******.***> was made. The e-mail could not be delivered because the recipient's e-mail domain name does not match any local e-mail domains."
How can I get around this? Do I need to configure an SMTP forwarder somewhere?
