    Hey guys,

    I have an SBS 2003 SP1 server running at my SOHO to serve as a proof
    of concept for a project I am working on.


    Everything is running as expected but I am wanting to know what would
    be the best practice to get my email to my exchange server from the
    several domains that I have hosted by Hostway.

    My ISP is Time/Warner using Roadrunner broadband and my IP is dynamic.
    I do have a free account with DDYNS and have a FQDN that points to my
    IP.

    For convenience I have used the CEICW to set up RR as my SMTP outbound
    and am using the POP3 connectors to pull mail from my hosted domains.
    (I know that this is not how I want to do it long term!)


    Can I create a scenario whereby email sent to me at
    goes straight to my exchange server?



    I hope I have explained this clearly enough..if not I would be happy
    to explain further!




    Thanks,

    James Newman

    You would need a "Custom DNS" account at DynDNS (or equivalent with other
    providers), delegate your "hosteddomain.com" zones to DynDNS (info about
    this is on their sites) and modify the MX record of each zone so that it
    points to your server. Check google for information about having Exchange
    accepting mails for multiple domains.

    Note that all mails sent "*@myhosteddomain.com" will end up in Exchange, not
    only yours. If this is not acceptable for your tests, you'll have to keep
    working with the POP3 connector as you're doing it today.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I understand you can not receive email
    directly via SMTP on your exchange server, you currently forward it to ISP
    mail account and download via pop3 connector. If I'm off base, please feel
    free to let me know.

    You can use a DNS forwarder as a workround, such as www.tzo.com or
    www.dyndns.com etc.. These services allow you to publish services using a
    FQDN. You install the DDNS client software on your computer (even one
    behind the ADSL router) and when your external IP address changes, the
    change will be noted at the DDNS server for resource records for your
    domain.

    Another alternative suggestion is a hardware router that has dynamic IP
    built in.

    Hope this helps, if you have any other concern or need more help, please
    feel free to let me know.

    Have a nice day!

    Best Regards,

    Chace Zhang (MSFT)
