SBS 2003 Exchange
Posted on 2014-01-10
I have a Small Business Server 2003 with an integrated Exchange.
I am going to purchase a new server to replace the SBS 2003 - in the near future. Being it's a small client, and the company is basically purchasing there email from an outside source, I will probably drop Exchange on the future system.
Knowing the above, I purchased a new Dell, with Windows 7 Pro and Office 2013. I joined the existing domain running on my SBS 2003. I attempted to configure the new Outlook 2013 to point to the SBS 2003 exchange ( I just have Exchange grabbing POP emails from an outside email server and distributing them with/in the domain) and received a message that it was incompatible with the current Exchange service. So, I configured the new outlook to point to the external POP account - the client is purchasing.
All was well until I noticed that LAN users are unable to email the above new client. When you open Outlook from a LAN user, you get a local list of users from the domain. Which I expected. What I didn't realize is that you are unable to type the outside pop email with out it defaulting back to the internal exchange local account. I literally can't type the outside address with out outlook auto pointing it to the local exchange mailbox.
Of course, this user is a manager, and I can't just change the email address so outlook assumes it's an outside account.
What can I do?
