Accepting mail from new gateway, Exchange 2003.

Do you have to specify the domain of a gateway to an email server (exchange 2003). I just recently updated from Symantec Brightmail on Windows 2000 to Symantec brightmail 9.0.2 on Linux. I have all the same Ips set up to deliver the mail. However there's two items that are different. The domain of the Gateway and also linux has somthing called a "broadcast" ip, not sure what that is. Where would i change on Windows 2003, exchange 2003 where it should be getting its filtered mail from?

Also i can tell that mail is getting to the gateway but is being rejected (i assume because it can't find email server)

MTA used to be like XXX1 and is now XXX.1.com (linux made me add the .com for virtual server)

so by fully qualified domain name i should include our domain in the name, because i can't actually add the computer name to the domain like windows... say domain was 1234abc for all the computers the gateway should be smtp1.1234abc.dns right?

On the exchange 2003 SMTp connector change the IP address of where the mail needs to go.It should be the new linux box IP address. Are you able to send external emails.
On the Symantec bright mail check the SMTP advanced settings for mail delivery.page 102

Turns out the domain had to be in the computer name (on linux you can't join domain like windows) and secondly the "Accept mail deliver for domain" needed to be abc.com and not @abc.com.. silly @ symbol haha. Thanks though boppe.
