Exchange 2013 and some mail-adresses are not set up in exchange/active directory - how to make exchange send those mails to users via web ?


i am trying to get the following to work. We have an Exchange 2013. Most of the mailadresses are for users in our office. But there are a few users that get their adresses by using pop3 of the external Provider.
So the Exchange-Server don´t know the existing of those Mail-Adresses. I think i have to set the accepted domain as "external relay" and not as "authorised domain". But if i do this, it says that i can´t, because the adress is used by
an Adress-policy. I deleted the policy, changed accepted domain to external relay. Now i try to setup the adress-policy with this domain. It says, that this domain isn´t in the list of acceptet domains...

What do i wrong ? All i want is that Exchange sends Mails of known mail-adresses to the mailbox of the user and of unknown mail-adresses to the Mailserver of the domain in the internet.

Thanks in advance...

Definetly you need to create an accepted domain and set it as external relay. However you cannot create an accepted domain that has a same name configured in remote domain. Therefore i request you to check your remote domain. For your ready reference i am pasting the below link. However i have some few concerns is your external provider share the same SMTP address space if yes then you need to configure Internal Relay
