Exchange Server 2010 Setup for a Lab. Godaddy Domain Registered.
Posted on 2012-09-14
I have two VMs running on VMWare Fusion. One is a DC running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition.
Another is an Exchange Server 2010, with a typical installation. (CA, MB & HT Roles)
Basically my goal is, i want my Exchange Setup to be publicly available with the least amount of expenses.
I have a domain - mydomain.com which is registered with GoDaddy.com
Now in their DNS Manager, i can see that there are 2 MX Records that are being created by default. And there are lots of CNAMEs also
there is a CNAME
Under MX Records the first and second one is specified with priority 10 and 0.
Now, do i have to change these to mail.mydomain.com in the CNAME and the MX Record Section.
moreover, in the Exchange HUB TRANSPORT role, i specified mailstore1.secureserver.net first and tried. Then i tried smtp.secureserver.net. But it says it doesnt accept.
I tried to telnet to mailstore1.secureserver.net and the same thing
Please help me achieve my objective.
