I am testing the SBS 2003 Server and I have configured my POP Connector to pull e-mails from my ISP.

Is there are a way where I can get rid of my ISP and do my own Mail Hosting on my Exchange Server?

Is yes, how can I aquire this task? I have 2 NIC's in my SBS Server?

Please advice.

If you control your own DNS for your domain, you can certainly do that.

You need to update your DNS MX Record(s) to point to your Exchange server.

Good luck.

I have removed the POP connector from my SBS2003 Exchange Server and my ISP has pointed the MX Record to my Exchange Server.

I created one testing account on my Exchange Server with a mailbox and when I send a mail from hotmail to that account it bounces back saying ... not a valid mailbox.

The POP3 Virtual Server is not starting.

Please advice.

Hi madcow,

Can you test connectivity to your server from the public IP space?

Try:

telnet yourservername.yourdomain.com 25

Do you receive a Banner like this?:

220 servername.domain.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service, Version: 6.0.3790.0 ready at Thu, 19 Feb 2004 11:01:58 -0800

Also, did you create an SMTP connector under the
ORG
Administrative Groups
SITE NAME
Connectors
Folder?

If not, you need to create an SMTP connector. Also, be sure to disallow relaying by editing the Relay Options under the SMTP Virtual Server Properties/Access Tab.

Let us know.

Madcow,

Please have in mind a lot of ISP's doesn't allow their customers to use port 25 (SMTP).
