Utter Newbie question - 30.Jun.2005 3:08:00 PM

Hello everyone,
I am testing out Exchange 2003 in a small office environment. We have an ISP (Rogers). We want Exchange to use this ISP to send and receive Internet email and then route it to the appropriate address within our network.

Is this what Exchange does? (told ya I was an utter newbie!). If so, how do I tell exchange to use our ISP's SMTP and POP accounts to send and receive mail?

Even a pointer to some good resources online would be appreciated. This is for a non-profit organization and I'm all they could afford!

Thanks for any assistance,

well, i dont see any real point in doing this - simply doing what your ISP is already doing... ?

or am i missing something?

you can set up the excange to download emails from your email providers servers and then allow multiple people to then access that single domain / address - you can set up multiple domains.

How many people are in this organization?

ideally if you can configure a Exchange srver you can get these people their own doamin name / email addresses and not even have to use the ISP's

If you want to use your Exchange server then there are a couple of ways.

1. Speak to the ISP and have all mail dumped into a single POP3 mailbox. Then use a POp3 connector: POPCON is about 50 Euro or so. That collects the mail and shoves it to your SMTp interface, delivering mail correctly. Outbound you select the relay at your ISP (ask them) and then configure the SMARTHOST on the SMTP VSI to send mail from you to their server.

2. Speak to your ISP and have them give you a fixed IP address. They will do the DNS so that all mail flows directly to you. The ISP will set up a FALLBACK for use in case your server gets switched off for the weekend or something.

Have a think about the options and have a chat with the ISP to see which one attacts least cost to you.

Then come back here with more questions because you'll proably need the jargon (in caps) translated and you'll probably need some advice in actually setting up the option you eventually go with.
