Hello Kevin. You might get a better picture of the exact reason the mail is being rejected by setting up SMTP logging on the Exchange with all details. Open the Exchange
account on the same PC. Outlook 2003 is setup to choose between profiles, and the user wanted to have the GAL contacts included in his POP3 profile. Everything seemed to go smoothly, but when he tries to send mail to a contact that was from the imported GAL, the mail just sits in the outbox. If he types the email address, the email will go. I noticed that in the contact list (only certain views) you can see the contact's email address followed by Ou=XXXXXXX etc (distiguished name??) I think that is causing the issues, but I am unsure. Also, when the user types the email not tested any software or information found on these sites; therefore, Microsoft cannot make any representations regarding the quality, safety, or suitability of any software or information found there.

SBS 2003 Network 5 users. Client computers are running Windows XP Pro and Outlook 2003. Using the http://servername/ConnectComputer wizard to setup client computers automatically connects and configures the exchange server account on the client computer. Created a pop3 email account in Outlook 2003. Clicked set as default. Every time the client a computer is started, rebooted or Outlook is opened the default email account reverts back to the exchanger server account. Why does the default email account change? How can we correct this? We will migrate all their email accounts to use the pop3 connector, but this should not be the fix. Thank you, Edhttp://seanda.blogspot.com/2004/10/having-trouble-trusting-exchange-from.htmlit worked! Thank you for the information.
under outlook which can totally bypass exchange. What settings do I need to do on isa2000 etc to allow outlook to contact internet directly for the pop email account to work? Currently I get the error 'smtp server not accessible' or something similar.To use protocols other than HTTP and basic Web browser you will need to install the ISA Client on the workstation MSPCLNT Share on the serverWhy not use the POP connector? You can use it in addition to whatever mail configuration you're currently using, you'll have the benefit of your Exchange AV scanner, and mail will get picked up whether you're logged in to Outlook or not. If you go that route, you'll have to enable the packet filter in ISA - it's called something like "
to an addresses at mydomain.co.uk. Have read posts mentioning MX connections through ISP etc however this is all new to me. How do I get email sent to mydomain.co.uk to arrive at exchange server? Do I phone ISP. Is there something I have to do at the domain registration end in relation to setting up an email account? The ISP uses SMTP authentication - is there any issues I should be aware of when setting up this in exchange? As I said this is all very new to me. Any help greatly Appreciated.first, in setting up your SBS server, do NOT use your mydomain.co.uk for the internal domain name. Use something like mydomain.local or mydomain.lan second, when you run thru the wizard and start to set up exchange, it will ask you what your real, outside mail domain (mydomain.co.uk) is
an SBS license for each email account if some of them are actual pop accounts just being delivered to the exchange server?Trying to guess what "Undisclosed reasons" is I can only guess on what you are trying to set up. As you know Exchange Can host Multiple email domains If this is a Different Domain There of course are not TRUSTS between the two. Exchange Email Accounts are for SBS Users. That being said: If you create an Account on SBS for a users POP3 into, They would need a license to access that account. So if your SBS LAN/Domain has 25 users and this OTHER party just using POP3 has 10 users You'd need 35 licenses. Any Physical/Remote Access to databases on the SBS be it POP3 or IMAP or RPC over HTTPS or SharePoint or File or FTP or SQL Requires a SBS
to go out from weird accounts that I don't think are valid but I've frozen them for the time being (can't figure out how to take them out delete completely from the view/queue) Question is, any ideas of how this is happening or where to check? It's an outside email account so not sure why he's getting such errors or postmaster returned mail type error messages. This is an email of some of the text rec'd on his end: _________________________________________ This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

(question dated 3/18/2206 is close but is not the same) I have 16 users setup to use exchange that came with SBS 2003 premiuim. These accounts have been running well for 8 or 9 months. I have added a new user (replacing one the previous 16) and create an exchange email account. When I launch Outlook 2003 to configure the new user I get the following message. "connection to microsoft exchange server unavailable, must be online or connected to complete this action" I have up to this occasion setup new users with no problem. It is a revolving door here. I have put 6 hours trying to get this to work before I gave up and came home to see if I can find an answer here. What have a done wrong? I have tried adding the new user using the the SBS 2003 user template,
What is the best way to implement an email account similar to [email protected]
I was thinking of creating a user "info" and allowing a dedicated user to access this email account. Does this user "info" take up a cal?IMO the best way to do this if you want multiple users to have access is to use a mail-enabled public folder. No CAL required for either a public folder or a mailbox - only actual users or devices require CALs.

I've already tried to set this as a public folder on the exchange server - but it is clear that it is completely useless. Trying to search this folder usually results in Outlook crashing.

) they receive an NDR. Email to all other domains routes correctly. I checked the Exchange email addresses for each of the POP3 user accounts and made sure that their domain was company.local. I am assuming that Exchange is trying to deliver the email to itself but since there is no company.com email address it send an NDR to sender. Should I set up an internal MX record to point company.com email to the external ISP account or is it an internal SMTP routing issue?I know I may not be much help cause I'm a NOOB But As Far as I can

Hi, When sending to recipients in a particular domain, I get the following error message. There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server. Please contact your system administrator. I can send and receive email from other domains. My public IP address is not static. What can I do on my end to alleviate this problem? The domain in question is comcast. Thanks!If you have a dynamic IP, you should be forwarding your outbound Internet mail through your ISP's mail server (or another one) as a smarthost, in a SMTP connector. Re-run the CEICW to configure this bit.
OK, can't seem to figure this one out and it should not be hard.

If I am off base, please don't hesitate to let me know. First, I want to say EX email type means the user has an email account created automatically in exchange. When you click add a user, run the add user wizard, it will automatically create a email address for this user, the email address's type is EX, this is by default, and you cannot delete it in your contact book, since your user account information is stored in the active directory database.

Mukilteo, WA USAYou answered your own question :)Hi Grey, Unfortunately though, the problem still exists. If I correctly set the default email account on the client PC, SBS changes it back next time she logs on. I've even unchecked the box on the server that says "Automatically update email addresses based on recipient policy". Is there a way to make Exchange stop making itself the default email account on the client PC ?I'm NOT an MVP, but I feel your pain: To prevent the system to change default outlook account back to the exchange account when re-logon, you can just change the registry keys on the XP/2000 clients as the following steps: 1. Open registry edit by run "regedit&
