Hi

Our setup:
We have a internet domainname at our webhosting provider: ourdomain.com
Our local domain is also called ourdomain.com
All external mails are delivered to our provider and are downloaded to our Exchange via gfi mailessentials.
All our employees & external representatives have a mailadress name@ourdomain.com.
Our external representatives work at home and download the mail from our provider.

Our problem:
We can send internal mails to name@ourdomain.com and external mails to name@anydomain.com without a problem.
But if we send a mail to our representatives (representative@ourdomain.com) we get a non delivery message from our exchange-server: #550 5.1.1 RESOLVER.ADR.RecipNotFound; not found ##

Untill last week we used Exchange 2003 without a problem. There was a setting to route mail for unknown recipients to the smtp-server of our provider.

Attached my non delivery message (in Dutch)

Hi
I already read this, but don't ounderstand what to add to the accepted domains.
I already have 1 item here: ourdomain.com type: Authorative.

Shoul I add our smtp server from our provider? (relay.provider.com)

Thanks
Youri

Playing with th different "Accepted domain"-settings, I found the solution:

Our domain "ourdomain.com" was already in there with type "Authoriative".
I changed this to "Internal relay" and now this works fine.
