Microsoft Exchange Server 2003

This is probably also related to Exchange server that comes with Small Business Server 2003...  I have a domain, "mydomain.com" set up for everyone's email here at the office.  The problem is, everyone who uses the domain "mydomain.com" is not at the office... some users don't use this network.  however, if I try sending an email to user@mydomain.com it kicks back, because that user isn't on the network.  Any idea what i did wrong?

Does user@mydomain.com have an active directory account and an associated email alias?  There are many avenues for this to fail, please elaborate on your domain and setup.

mydomain.com is a pop3 account.  I set it up so that the people who use the pop3 account here can access their emails through exchange server.  I'm using the pop3 connector, but i've also noticed that mydomain.com is listed as an smtp account under email policies.  If I click on recipients policy it shows the @mydomain.com under the generation rules as an SMTP type.  If i click edit, there's a greyed out box that says "this exchange org is responsible for all email sent to this address" - (or something like that) - I can't unselect that.

All I want is for my users to beable to get their email here.  Do I need to have @mydomain.com as an smtp type?  Right now, I can send and receive emails from all accounts, as long as they aren't sending to an @mydomain.com address. (that isn't a valid user)

Hope this clears it up...

thank you!

Is mydomain.com pop3 account something that is provided by a third party (ie. ISP, hosting company)?

At any rate, you will have to create an email address for each user, in an exchange environment you would create either mail enable users in active directory or mail enabled contacts that point to their email address.  If you are using a third party for your email you will need to get with that provider and use their tools to create the email addresses.
