SBS2011 and exchange 2010

Hi All.

We are testing and evaluating SBS2011 with exchange 2010.

We have installed the OS and configured what needs configuring (We think!) however we are not able to recieve email.

In exchange management we have added the relative domain names in 'accepted domains' tab - and added an 'email address policy', but when we send email from an external source, it does not reach the inbox.

Interestingly we ask for a read and delivery receipt from the senders email and we get nothing. If we 'Plug-in' the old server (sbs2003 - configured and working) then the emails get delivered.

Can anyone please point us in the right direction or throw any light on this please.

Thank you and Regards
Andy.

Have you completed all the wizards in the SBS Console?
One of the things the Internet Address Wizard does is add's the anonymous user check box to the permissions of the default receive connector.

If you haven't run the wizards then this will not have happened.

Can you check in Exchange Management Console under Server Configuration > Hub transport.

There will be a receive connector call DEFAULT Servername.

Under the permissions tab, make sure Anonymous user is selected.

Do you have a dedicated spam filter ?
Wizard configures two Receive connectors. One for internal and one for external emails.
And only from one LAN IP (Default Gateway) is allowed to receive emails with Anonymous User permissions.
In case when emails are forwarded not from IP of DG is more secure to change IP in receive connector from IP DG to IP of your Spam Filter

Hi cgaliher

Sometimes I can be so thick!!!! - spot on - to avoid a conflict I have this new server on a different fixed IP address and YES - the router is trying to forward to an ip address that is not on that network.

Tested and working.

Thank you.
