    I named our Windows 2003 internal domain with the same as our external
    Windows domain e.g.
    I now realise that this was a mistake and I should have called it
    bladomain.local, as when trying to access our company website (not hosted by
    us), it won't resolve.

    Is there a way I can put some kind of DNS pointer/forwarder for so that it resolves externally? also we don't use a proxy.
    I'm not great with DNS, so easy instructions would be greatly appreciated!!

    INtetrnally manuall create your www, ftp and whatever records under your BLA
    zone and provide the actual external IP addresses. If it is a resource your
    are hosting for the world from your internal network, such as if you are
    hosting a web server, create the record and provide the internal private IP.
    You wouldn';t need to create a mail record if you are hosting Exchange, if
    not, create that too.

    You can also delegate a www (or whatever) record too, to the DNS servers
    that are SOA for the zone. Rt click, new delegation, type in www, provde the
    external SOA. TO find that, use nslookup, use server to find it.

    Instead of the website you're using, try using OEx (Outlook Express
    or any other newsreader), and configure a news account, pointing to Anonymous access. It's free - no username or password
    required nor do you need a Newsgroup Usenet account with your ISP. It
    connects directly to the Microsoft Public Newsgroups. OEx allows you
    o easily find, track threads, cross-post, sort by date, poster's name,
    watched threads or subject. It's easy:
