I have setup sbs 2011. and Dell pro help has confirmed that it is setup correctly. server software found an error by running check network wizard and fixed it. Port mapping for sending email hadn't been setup. I don't know why that is or how to check for that.
I have static ip address and have setup a record pointing to the ip address of my router and port forwarded port 25 to local ip address. I have had at&t create reverse ip address for the public ip address of my router.
My server name is exchange. the domain is samuelscompany.com. The local domain is samuelscompany.local.
The work stations connect to the exchange server. Email goes and comes from the server. I haven't changed the mx record yet, still letting old hosted exchange server function.
But I thought that I should be able to send email out. I have tried, but the email never gets to its destination.
Are there any clues here as to what I have done wrong.
Or do I have to wait until I change the mx record?
