Here's my setup:
I have a external web base mail account with this domain: abc.com
I'm setting up an exchange server with domain: abc.us.
On my exchange server(abc.us): Under the Hub transport, I created abc.com as an authoritative domain and set the email address policies to use abc.com as default send address. I setup a POP3 connector to enable me to receive emails from ep-cm.com domain.
My problem: firstname.lastname@example.org masked as email@example.com from the exchange server sends an email to the web base email firstname.lastname@example.org(person which is not on the exchange server distribution list). I get an undeliverable message. The exchange server checks the internal distribution list for matching email address. If it cant find it the email in the distribution list, then the message is flag as undeliverable. The problem is basically the exchange server would not send the email to the abc.com domain over the internet...
Is there a way for me to set up a email policy, where I can tell the exchange server to send out the email to the internet if the recipient email address does not exist on the server???
I appreciate any help you could provide!
Bellow is the error message I get from my exchange server: (Please keep in mind that email@example.com is not the exchange server but he is on the Web Base email server that exist on the internet.
