Setup a new Exchange 2010 Server

I am working on a test system at home.  I have everything setup where I think it should work, however I seem to have an issue.  The way the network is setup is static IPs, one for the router, and one for the Server, which is running Windows 2008 R2, it is a domain controller, DNS, Exchange 2010 Server, IIS7 Server.  It does it all.  Have to as I only have one computer to use at this time.  IIS7 works fine, as I can get to a web page on the server, so routing is working.  Exchange 2010 seems to be working fine internally as I can send emails to one account to another just fine.  However if I send a message outside nothing happens, the email just goes off and never arrives.  If I sent a message inbound it bounces back with the following error:

This is the mail system at host smtp15.relay.dfw1a.emailsrvr.com.

I have an MX record pointing to the public IP address of the server.

I ran some SMTP tests as well and it says something along the lines of Client
   was not authenticated.  I'm thinking I need to setup Exchange to allow anonymous connections?  Is this the route I need to go?

Thanks,

Ivan

If you don't have an Edge server then you do not have a connector with anonymous authentication enabled. You need to adjust the properties of the Default Receive Connector to allow anonymous access. You do not need to create a new Receive Connector.

Well progress is being made.  I can now receive emails.  I created a send connector, however still can't get emails out.  Is there something else I should look at as to why emails won't go out, they look like they get sent, but never arrive at the destination.

Have you configured a Send Connector?
Under Organisation Configuration > Hub Transport > Send Connector
you need to setup a connector with an address space of * to use either DNS or smarthost.

If you use DNS then you need to configure a rDNS(PTR) record for say mail.yourdomain.com an A record in your external DNS for mail.yourdomain.com that points to the external IP of your network (Find out what your external IP is by going to http://whatsmyip.org )

Then on the FQDN section of your send connector enter mail.yourdomain.com

ypu will also need to setup an SPF record see: http://www.microsoft.com/mscorp/safety/content/technologies/senderid/wizard/

Hope this helps.

Emails now work both ways.  Just needed to create an A record pointing to my public IP.  Thanks for all your help again.
