I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to register the domain name abc123.com.  Then you need to set your DNS up properly (proper MX record, etc) so that other e-mail servers know your exchange server is the correct server to send mail to that domain, then you need to setup a recipient policy so that the Exchange server itself understands it should be accepting e-mail destined for abc123.com.

As LeeW says you need to get the name and MX record sorted first. For sresouces on setting up exchange see

You must register your domain name as leew said. you create create policies and spam filters before your domain get black listed by security servers.

i use a company called http://www.123-reg.co.uk/ - but you can use any. Once you have registered your domain name, you will need to add the mx record and point it to your mail server IP address. This will allow people from the web to find your mail server to deliver your mail to you.

If you only want to use this email for internal purposes, then you don't need to register the domain name....

ask away if you need more advice....
