Exchange 2007 will not receive emails from outside world
Posted on 2009-07-12
For the past 3 days I have been trying to get Exchange 2007 to receive email from outside sources with no luck. Most people will not post their domain names and ip addresses but I need to get this done and its driving me crazy.
internal domain name is Compmia.local
internal domain controller name is srvw2k8.compmia.local
exchange server name is srvw2k8exch.compmia.local
I have a sonicwall 2040 pro
added nat and opened ports for mail.
my website address is compmia.com
subdomain for mail is mail.compmia.com
modem static ip address is 18.104.22.168
Compmia.com (mx record) points to mail.compmia.com
Mail.compmia.com (a record) points to 22.214.171.124 which is my modem static ip address.
Mail.compmia.com (mx record) points to mx01.1and1.com which is my domain host.
I don't know which to make the trusted domain, compmia.local or compmia.com
my user are created with their email at .local, i know how to change it in the policy to .com but which do I use.
I created the connectors to us anonymous
does my isp have to do anything else for this to work or do I only need the changes i made from my domain host.
dns settings on my domain controller, I can really use some help on that.
I dont know why I cant receive email, Ive tried many things for the last 3 days, any help is appreciated, thanks.
