I've setup up a Small business server 2008 machine just to have a play about with.
Everything is working fine, connected a workstation and both computers can access
the internet. I am having trouble sending and receiving email from Outlook 2007 what
i would like to know is what settings do I need so that this will work correctly. Just
to start off I haven't changed any settings at my hosting company where I have a domain
for testing purposes and a couple of mailboxes. I have enabled the pop connector and
added the correct details but mail still in not being delivered. Should these settings
work out of the box or is there something else I have missed. I am unable to get a static
Ip so have used a dyndns account which I have setup in the router. I have read that it is
better to setup a mx record and have mail delivered directly to the server but am unsure
what settings I need to change in my hosts dns settings.  I have attatched the file and
would be grateful if you tell me what details I need to change.
