daveflubyu -> dns configuration help (23.May2011 10:40:25 AM)

i am configuring my first exchange 2003 server out of my home in an effort to teach myself. my goal is to be able to configure pop, smtp, webmail, and rpc over http

i understand the exchange part of it but an struggling with my dns records.

i am working with a single Windows Server 2003 box with ports forwarded from my firewall. i have ports 25, 80, 110 and 443 forwarded out to my server and am just wondering the type (and maybe an example) of DNS entries i need to add to my zone in my godaddy account if..

domain = domain.com
server = server01
ip address = x.x.x.x

most articles that i read online talk about publishing this through an ISA server, which i do not have.

You need a registered domain (e.g. yourdomain.com)
You need a publicly routable static IP address (no private addresses)

You need an "A" record that associates an FQDN (e.g. mail.yourdomain.com) to your static IP address.
You need a "PTR" record that associates your static IP address to your FQDN (reverse lookup record)
You need an "MX" record that associates the FQDN from your "A" record with a value between 0 and 255.  The value only matters if you have more than one MX record.

Awesome. I did what you said and can send and receive mail now. THANKS!

I am wondering about OWA though, do I need to have a seperate record for that to make it resolve??

i can access it locally by going to server.domain/exchange but don't know how to make it availble to myself over the internet.

most of the articles i read on the topic talk about using and ISA server, which i do not have.

The ports you have forwarded should be 45 instead of port 25. Rest are fine, that could be the problem?
