Installing new exchange server on non DC

Here is my setup. I have a DC controller and a exchange server on my network. Until now, I have always ran exchange on my dc. I just purchased another server and I have started from scratch. I have windows 2003 Enterprise running as my dc. I have a seperate server running windows 2003 server, but it is just joined to the domain. This is the server I have exchange installed on. I added exchange sytem manager on my dc and have added 1 email account to start of with. The problem I am having is I can not log onto the web access. It keeps rejecting my username and password. IIS is working because i get a page not displayed error when trying to access the default web site without the /exchange after it. I have sent an email from an outside address to the exchange address and so far I have not gotten a bounce back, but can not check the mail to see if it has arrived. Does anyone see anything wrong with my setup?

"I added exchange system manager on my dc and have added 1 email account to start of with"

So, when you created this user account - did it get stamped with an email address - can you see that mailbox listed in Exchange System Manager

"The problem I am having is I can not log onto the web access. It keeps rejecting my username and password IIS is working because i get a page not displayed error when trying to access the default web site without the /exchange after it"
Exchange has to be accessed on OWA using http://exchangeserver/exchange (unless you have done redirection at IIS level - which i do not think you might have done)

Please check if by working http://exchangeserver/exchange - are you able to logon on the mailbox.?

I figured out why I could not log on. I had to login as domainname\user. I did not have to do that on my last exchange install.

Now the issue is, I can send mail from this account, but I can not receive. I have tried several mail tests and they see the mx record, but can not connect to my mail server. I do have a pix in between the internet and the servers. I have not made any changes to it and it worked fine prior to reinstalling exchange.

Why not see a simple telnet test and check if your Exchange server is able to receive emails ?
Also, try sending a simple self test email - check if Exchange can show you that email in your inbox.

With the way my pix is setup I can not "go out and back in" I can telnet from inside to my exchange box. I can also send to and receive from a .local account.

  1. Sending to yourself internally works fine - this means Exchange is working good.
  2. You can send emails outside - this means SMTP works fine with DNS.
  3. You cannot receive emails from outside - first doubt would be on PIX.
  4. Check if PIX doesn't have any rule to block emails for your Exchange IP Address.

Stupid me. I forgot that I kept the hostname the same on the exchange box, but I changed the IP address. I looked at the PIX and it was pointing to the wrong IP. Thanks for opening my eyes
