Hi everyone,

i have managed to check SMTP server whehter its running or not using Telnet and did try to send one test mail from one user to another user. The results were healthy.

I need help in moving to next stage where i can configure Exchange server 2007 and use it my organization wide. I have kept all the Roles and rules default at this point of time.

I am requesting everybody to help me out to make this exchange server 2007 on Windows Server2008 64bit to the end i.e. using with outlook 2007.

looking forward to hearing from you with positive reply.

many thanks.

you'll need to verify the CAS server configuration for your outlook clients
take a look at this article

Hi,

while reading your email i found that on my server OWA is already working and my user can send and receive emails on that.

I need to know how to link up with Ms Outlook and use it with my exterdomain i.e. mail.abc.co.uk

looking forward to hearing from you.

many thanks.

that article i provided doesn't cover owa, it covers the steps for configuring the CAS server for Outlook 2007 and later connections

To Patch or not to Patch? That is the question!

Don't get caught out like thousands of others around the world in the recent Ransomware Fiasco!

you need to have an accepted domain configured to receive mail
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124423(EXCHG.80).aspx

you also need to ensure you have a receive connector that will accept anonymous connections from the internet
you just need to update the default receive connector

$con = Get-ReceiveConnector server\default*
$con.PermissionGroups += "AnonymousUsers"
Set-ReceiveConnector $con -PermissionGroups $con.PermissionGroups

to send outside messages you need to create a send connector

from an external source attempt to telnet to your external ip on port 25 and send a message
until the mx record is udpated to point to your server, you will not receive email

telnet 23.34.45.56 25
ehlo domain.com
mail from: you@domain.com
rcpt to: someone@your2007domain.com
data
subject: test message
test

well, i have tried sending out... but did not work will try on receiving email as you say...

but, i have one more doubt... which is

my local DC is abcsrvr.local
but when i go to Windows SBS Console it confuses me big time.

when i try to configure my outlook it tries on something like this....and asks authorisation
remote.abc.co.uk
well, i tried to configure my outlook on abc@abcsrvr.local it works fine..

but i would like to know is that at the moment i have not disabled or deleted any of my mail boxes from my hosted server. i.e. abc@abc.co.uk is still there working. How do i perform test.

thanks.
