Emails stuck as draft in Outlook

When I send an Email via the Outlook web version, it automatically saves as a draft. It then tells me that it takes a little bit longer to send the Email. Unfortunately it will never send the email. I'm new to this and I just finished the installation and configuration of Exchange 2016.

Anyone got a idea what might be the problem here?

Hi Mark,

Kindly make sure that you have properly set OWA URL in Virtual Directory of OWA in EAC  under Server section.  If you have set separate URL for Internal URL for OWA then make sure that you are using that while opening web mail internally or from domain joined computer.

HI Mark,

You need to configure the send connector in orde to be able to send emails?

You can set up with mX records or smarthost as you prefered.

@Valentina Perez  I configured the send connector as follows. Type: SMTP Domain: * Cost: 1
I set it up with my MX record and the NS lookup works so that shouldn't be the issue, right?

Thank you for the reply!

Hi Mark,

Yes it should work...so i am thinking maybe it is related to your databases

If you run the following command: Get-MailboxDatabaseCopyStatus *

Which results do you have?

Hi,

Please also check the DNS settings of your NIC on Exchange server ase well. If you have added second DNS server of google ( 8.8.8.8) or any other external DNS server then please remove it. KIndly keep only first DNS IP which is pointing to your domain controller.

@Muhammad Asif The NIC on my Exchange server doesn't have a second DNS configured. It only has the DNS configured that is located on the Domain Controller. Other FQDN can be resolved without any problem.

Thank you.
