Hello,

We currently have our email hosted by a third party and we use outlook to connect to the pop account. I wanted to test an exchange server here while the rest of the company continued to use the pop email hosted by the third party.

If I put the MX key that is associated with out domain name in the exchange server and publish it to the net and use test email addresses will it conflict with the third party email servers? I will use unique email addresses.

Hi,

Yes that would conflict. Mails would go to either your current hosting company or to your server. Mails destined for the mailboxes located on the server would be delivered all other mails would be returned unless you configure exchange to forward all unresolved emails to the hosting company - see http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;319759.

I would not recommend your test!

thanks for the reply. I am testing using the xx@xx.local emails until they switch.

The link to the microsoft article is no longer there, what was the article about?

i would suggest just register a new domain, pay the $9 monthyl fee and use a new domain to test with.
