as i have my own exchange 2003 server setup via a static ip with my ntl isp.
i do on my own exchange server:
telnet x.x.x.x (ip address) port 25 - this lets me see my smtp verbs are installed correctly informing me that smtp is installed correctly. as well as after running: /domainprep & /forestprep - i then run: orgprepcheck, which confirms to me exchange is installed correctly.
in order to confirm my (ntl isp) port 25 is open I do: telnet smtp.ntltelewestbusinnes.co.uk 25.
this command lets me in, i then do a: ehlo smtp.ntltelewestbusiness.co.uk - enter and i then see:
220 esmtp server ready
1. is this correct or should it look like mine below:
250-email-pri.dc1.local hello [192.168.0.101]
250-x-exps gssapi ntlm login
250-auth gssapi ntlm login
2. my domain by the way is currently not with (ntl isp), i am currently routing it through 123reg: masterexchange.co.uk, which is pointing to my (static ip with ntl isp)?
