Exchange servers to exchange emails over non vpn link.
Posted on 2009-03-29
Our VPN link has physically died (ISP Problem) between our offices so mail is not getting passed onto office2. Office1 has a temporary internet solution but setting up the VPN through it is not possible. I was curious how I can configure office2 to receive emails from Office1.
Both locations have operating internet connections and are running Exchange 2003. Office1 is recieving all emails as normal, just is not passing it onto Office2 mail server.
All emails are sent to Office1 mail server (Master) and then sent to Office2 mail server (Member). Is it as simple as changing the DNS entry on Office2 mail server to resolve to Office1 mail servers external IP address (instead of local)?
Someone mentioned that I should get Office2 server to connect to Office1 over pop but I was not sure what they were talking about.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
