SBS 2011 Std - New install - Cannot send or recive mail to external domains
Posted on 2011-03-01
I have a new install of SBS 2011. New box with quad proc, 8GB ram, 6 - 500 GB HD’s. Ran the install cd and have been through the wizards and connected to the internet as well as set up the internet webpage. The OWA works great and all ports have been opened on the router to forward 25, 80, 443, 987 to the SBS 2011 server nic. Let's say the OWA is remote.sbsdoamin.com. When I go to OWA and log on, then send a new email to email@example.com and copy firstname.lastname@example.org the email shows up in the owa inbox almost immediately, but the email@example.com never gets there. If I go to Gmail web access and send and email to firstname.lastname@example.org I do not get it as well.
I have been through the clean install about 5 times now due to AT&T's service blocking port 25 communication. I have changed over to a business account with a rack of static's. The DSL modem/router is set to expose my usable IP's. My Cisco WRVS4400n is set with one of the 5 usable IP's. This is the machine the ports are forwarded on. No problems with internet access now, or port 25 being blocked by my ISP.
Also, I have not run any updates on the server yet. Wanted to make sure everything was working first. I do have Malware Bytes installed for security. The windows firewall is the firewall.
Is there something else that needs configuring before the mail will start to work?
Do I have to install MS Outlook on the server?
Do I have to manually make changes to the firewall? (I have not, thought windows SBS setup should have taken care of that?)
Do I need to setup POP email to be pulled to the server?
Do I need to setup a smart host through my ISP?
Lots of questions, but just wnat tot know how to get mail to send and recive externally!
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!!
