First of all, What is PopCorn??? In order to be able to send emails externally, you need to configure a send connector and have it use DNS to resolve MX records or if you are setup to use a smarthost, then configure the connector to send all messages to the smarthost.

If you confused about MX records, then I really do not think you should be managing the Exchange organization!! How much experience do you have with Exchange 2007?? Who configured the environment? Is this production or a test environment?

I dont have much expirence in exchange i am learning as its the requirement of my job. Popcon is use to retrive emails from mail server.Now i configred my server to retrive emails from the mail server,but i am not able to send mails out. I have checked the configuration of my send connector everything seems to be ok but emails are not going out.
At the moment its test, but it will be live in 1 week..
Thanks for the reply.

Some ISP's demand you send email through their dedicated Smart Host. Could that be it? If so, recreate your Send Connector of the type "Custom" and specify Smart Host delivery.

If the Send Connector type is Internet it will try DNS MX-lookup instead of the specified Smart Host.
