Routing External Mail to the external mail server.

    We have a small inhouse office staff and a large external staff of coaches
    and operators in the field. The external users only require to have email,
    the internal users work full time and we recently picked up a SBS Premium for
    What we're doing for email is just leaving it set up primarily on the
    external server that our website is hosted on, and any emails that come in to
    internal staff are picked up and delivered in exchange pop3 connector.

    Now the problem we are having is that from the exchange server we can not
    send email to external users. If I try sending something to an address that
    doesn't exist within the exchange server on the domain we own I end up with
    the following:

    Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
    Subject: Officials DB changes
    Sent: 11/24/2005 10:50 AM
    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
    on 11/24/2005 10:50 AM
    The e-mail account does not exist at the organization this
    message was sent to. Check the e-mail address, or contact the recipient
    directly to find out the correct address.
    < #5.1.1>

    How do I get the danged thing to forward out emails to the proper server for
    users that aren't in office?? The only solution I currently have thought up
    is to register a secondary domain and then set up mail accounts on exchange
    for every one of these users and forward the email to the same email address
    at the secondary domain which exhchange wouldn't believe is it's own.

    Any advice well received, thanks all!

    Add on to this post.. I have tried forwarding all email from the account to
    an alias domain on the external server but the emails are forwarding! I went
    into OWA as the user and set up a rule for all messages to forward.. but
    nothing is happening. Can the forwarding through OWA not go to a foreign
    email server??

  3. Hi Keven,

    Sharing SMTP address spaces in Exchange 2000 Server and Exchange Server 2003

    In some environments, you may want to share a Simple Mail Transfer Protocol
    (SMTP) address space, such as an SMTP domain, between Microsoft Exchange
    2000 Server and another e-mail system or between Microsoft Exchange Server
    2003 and another e-mail...;en-us;321721

    Authoritative and nonauthoritative domains in Exchange 2000 Server and in
    Exchange Server 2003

    You can configure Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server to
    be authoritative or nonauthoritative for a specified Simple Mail Transfer
    Protocol (SMTP) address space. This setting significantly affects the way
    that e-mail messages...;en-us;823158
