Old SMTP address KEEP COMING BACK! :-0

  1. HELP!

    SBS 2003. Connected to DSL via router. Another ISP is hosting the domain.
    Using POP Connector to download email from ISP.

    Local Domain = rlvinyl.local
    Public Domain = rlvinyl.com

    When we create an account (say Sam Smith), we created the login as
    . That information is placed in the General Tab under "Email
    Account".

    Under "E-mail Address" there are two entries. &


    The ISP hosting the domain has his username as

    When I send an email outside the network it says it's coming from
    , which is not valid. I've changed the STMP entry to say
    samsmith, but after about 45 seconds, it adds back in and
    sets it as default, which then changes the data from the General Tab.

    How can I change/add the STMP account of without it
    changing back everytime!

    Thanks ahead of time!

  2. After editing the primary SMTP address to samsmith@rlvinyldotcom, uncheck
    the box that says: "Automatically update email addresses based on recipient
    policy".

  6. IMHO, you're far better off editing the recipient policy to reflect the way
    you want email addresses generated. If you have one or two custom addresses,
    deselecting the box is fine - but if you have to do it for every user then
    the policy route is the way to go.
