NDR appear when sending mails to branch offices

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by susantha silva, Sep 13, 2005.

  1. One of my client is facing an issue with sending e-mails to his branch
    office members. All the company mails are handle by one ISP. The Head office
    setup a SBS server and configured Exchange server to retrieve mails from the
    ISP relevant to office members in the head office only, so other users mails
    will be residing in the ISP site to get down by the branch offices. Head
    office maintain a address book of all the users in branch offices. But when
    a user tries to select one of branch office members e-mail address and tries
    to send a message it won't get delivered instead NDR appear. the message is
    like this, So wondering how to solve this problem. Any help would be greatly

  2. Hi Dave,

    Well my problem is these branches are keep on growing because these are
    franchise. So your solution will be little bit difficult to me and after all
    head office don't like to held other users mails in their side either. So
    I've to maintain the company address book with all the branch office members
    e-mail addresses and still not make any problems.

  4. Hi Susantha,

    Your original 'bounce between servers' NDR aside for now ....

    What you're trying to do (I think) is share the email domain with your ISP,
    but you don't want your Exchange to be authoratative for the domain. In
    other words, you want the user accounts that exist on the SBS to be able to
    mail each other, and have that mail delivered locally, but also be able to
    send email to users on the external mail server (which has the same email
    domain). This can be done.
