Setting up SBS 2008 with exchanged 2007 used the wizard to move the database for exchange database, redirections folders, and followed most of the wizards and everything seems to fine.
But mail is not recieving or sending I was wondering if there is a good reference point to reviews certain steps that I need to check to ensure that I did everthing right.
Like open up the right ports.
 Maybe to run a connector for mail send.
Even setting up the hosted dns manger in godaddy.
I was thinking because the mail addresses are setup with Juser@domainname.local and then I manually entered as a alais as juser@domainname.com that might be the issues
Just no email coming or going
OWA is working fine
Any help is greatly appreciated thank you

you need to have port 25 open on the router and redirected to the mailserver. make sure that the domainn in demand is added under accepted domain in the exchange mgmt console under recipient ---> accepted domains. and make sure you add the domain to the default domain policy. you can always preferably  configure the exchange from the Windows SBS admin console

knee jerk reaction is DNS issues

you'll need an A record that points to the IP address of the Server, and an MX record pointing to the A record with a Low priority.

Port 25 needs to by opened on the firewall and pointing at the mail server, here's the normal SBS ports to open on the firewall point them to your SBS Server

PPTP                      1723      1723      192.x.x.x
RDP-SBS              3389      3389      192.x.x.x
HTTP              80              80              192.x.x.x
HTTPS              443              443              192.x.x.x
RWW              4125      4125      192.x.x.x
RWW-SSL              987              987              192.x.x.x
SBS-SMTP              25              25              192.x.x.x

you can test SMTP by using telnet from outside the network and trying to telnet to your external IP on port 25

in a command prompt, type
telnet Server.DomainName.com 25

Ok.. thank you for all your help all of the information was very helpful, but I left the external domain address when setting up this exchange server. I did not set up the accepted domain in the hub transport under the organizaton configuration.
