Hi.
I have a strange question. I have taking ower a company network from a earlier it-company. The problem is that ther is very bad dokumentation and i am gona move all exchangeadresses from recieving them to exchange to a webhotell. The customer whants this type of move, becaus they travel allot around the world and the exchangeserver is giving som problems and i agree to move this. They have 3 different maildomanins and 2 of them is on a hotell today. They are using the exchangeserver to use as a backup still. Now to the question.

How can a find the settings for the mailaccount so i can move the funktion from recieving the mail direktly by the server and move it to a webhotell.?
The 2 other addresses is syncing direktly via the webhotell and then a exchangeaccount is syncing it when they is in the network.

/Jonas

Don't install on same server. Install it on remote machine. Like ur desktop and run it against ur exchange server

Right click on the message and check the header information. It will tell you, from where it is routing. Or you can check it from Exchange tracking logs.

Okej. What i can se it´s going trough a "mail.domain.se" when i recieve a mail from that user from that adress. And that is forwarded trough a webhotells dns forward. MX and a mailforward is done to theirs external ip-adress.
So....at the webhotell at the domain, the mail that is send to that domanin, then is forwarded to the exchangeserver. If i change the mx and dns to the webhotell, and move the mail to that webhotell it should work. Is i getting it right?

I am expert on Exchange only, I suggest you to check with webhotell vendor. Doing changes in MX/DNS record will bring down everything down for current users. Please check with Vendor also.
