Just added a SBS 2008 to my small network with no errors. Only want to use for DNS/DHCP and Remote Web Workplace, no email just yet. But now, from any client computer, I can not go to godaddy.com website nor sync my imap godaddy email in my outlook. I know it is a simple config issue in the Exchange but where and what? Any help is appreciated.

Should have mentioned that I have tried to run the smarthost wizard but can not because though godaddy is an option, server cant find it. When i run tracert, it can find any website but not godaddy.com nor secureserver.net.

Have you added the DNS forwarder IP Address on the DNS server ?

Add the ISP's DNS IP Address In the forwarder list of DNS ,if you do not have the ISP's DNS then use the following Google Public DNS IP Address and add those in the DNS forwarder list

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

To configure a DNS server to use forwarders using the Windows interface

Open DNS Manager.
To open DNS Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.
In the console tree, click the applicable DNS server.
Where?
DNS/Applicable DNS server
On the Action menu, click Properties.
On the Forwarders tab, under DNS domain, click a domain name.
Under Selected domain's forwarder IP address list, type the IP address of a forwarder, and then click Add.

That was it.... I will give you all the points as soon as you explain why? I didn't think the forwarders was an issue because I was able to resolve all domains and go anywhere on Internet. With the exception of godaddy.com and secureserver.net. So why?

I have no idea why ?,

But as per your post it seems that your dns server is not able to resolve the godaddy.com and secureserver.net

Hence ,after adding the Google Public DNS Address the godaddy.com and secureserver.net server name has been resolved and Your DNS server has found the IP Address of this domains now you are able to browse!!!!!

Thanks ,If anything is unclear, please feel free to let us know and we will be glad to help,Have a good day.
