I have a SBS 2003 server that has never been configured from the start. My main problem is that the DNS server will not resolve DNS requests for External domain names. The server will resolve local computer names fine.    I noticed that if you add a "fowarder" ther server will resolve but im still stumped why it wont resolve on its own.  Root hints are all in place.      Any Suggestions?

THank you
