Hi Experts,

My problem is that mails will not arrive in my SBS 2003 mail server.
I have a domain (let's call it example) www.example.be hosted by a provider.
I have asked them to point the mx records to my fixed IP address.
After the installation of sbs 2003 i now can send mails. recipients receive them with the right name (serge@example.be). but none of the mails send to me (or any one else in my domain) reaches it's destiny.
The only mails arriving properly are the ones coming in with a pop connector that checks another old account and the mails send from within my domain. (eg user1 to user2 works like a charm.)

Is there a good way to troubleshoot this problem?
Where should I start?
