I am a small business owner with limited IT knowledge. I have installed SBS 2008 on my server and wanted to use the Exchange functionality that in budnled with it. I presently can receive mail and send to most locations. I do however have three issues: 1) there are some site that I can't send mail to, Exchange sends me a Deliver Delay message and never is able to send the message, 2) utilizing Outlook on the server, it is constantly asking me for a login password that it can never resolve, 3) I am unable to get Active Sync to work with my HTC phone. Below are the specifics: (i am using representative names and IP's)
Domain name GDdomainname.com
A Record - @ 99.99.999.99
remote 66.666.666.666 (I got this IP from my linksys router under the admin tab)
MX 10 @ remote.GDdomainname.com
Service _autodiscover _TCP @ 443 remote.GDdomainname.com
Computer name - MainServer.AAA.local
Additionally, I can get into web access using the http://remote.GDdomainname.com
. It seems to behave in the same manner however. I also purchased and installed a SSL from GoDaddy issued to remote.GDdomainname and a gd-iis-intermidates which i also installed (hopefully both were done correctly but I can't be sure.
I know this is a long winded message but I truly am pulling my hair out and thus far none of the typical resoures have been of much help. Any guidance will be greatly appreciated.
