We are setting up a Microsoft SBS 2003 server and configuring exchange 2003 mail server as well.
Right now we have the server setup in our test location. Its been configured with all the domain info and everything.

How can we test the mail server (incoming/outgoing) using a Public Static IP, without having to change the MX record ?

Is there a way to test the mail server without changing the mail server using the Public Static IP address ?



Thanks in advance

You can test mail going out. You can all so use telnet to connect to the email server, or even add an entry to your host file and get some software that will directly email the server.
