Dynamic IP Bounceback from Hotmail/Gmail with MS Exchange
Posted on 2012-09-06
I've got an odd issue that I just can't figure out.
Our Comcast modem went out and Comcast can't send out a technician for 7 days to replace it. Naturally, as a mid sized business, we absolutely can't have all of our exchange services down for that long. To remedy the situation, I installed my own Motorola cable modem to at least get web and basic email back up.
The problem is my Motorola modem can't have static IP addresses loaded to it, forcing us to use a dynamic IP. MOST of our email comes through, but services such as Hotmail and Gmail won't send email to a dynamically assigned address.
Is there any way at all that I can trick these services into accepting the address so we can get these emails back up?
Thanks in advance.
