accessing webmail of mail server outside local domain from local domain client pc
Posted on 2011-10-13
On any PC that is in our local domain, we cannot login to our mail server's webmail without changing the domain prefix. Yet for computers not yet joined to the domain or outside the office, they don't need to change a thing.
EG: Outside the local domain (or office)...
username = fsurname
password = abc123
As member of local domain...
it tries to connect with username = ourdomain.local\fsurname
but it fails and I have to change to clientpc\fsurname
How can I make it so that it works with either???
PS. the local domain is setup like "ourdomain.local" and the email server (which is in the office, in a different IP range) is setup as "mail.emaildomain.com.au". We can normally access webmail from any computer, anywhere.
