A silly Exchange question!!!!

By e_canaan ·
We're hosting our Exchange 2003 server in-house, using a registered domain name

How can I find out what my SMTP and POP3 setting exactly are.?? I need them to set up remote clients using IMAP/POP3.
Thanks for any help.

You mean from the workstation?

Outlook 2003?

All you need is the dns name for your exchange server.

From the Tools menu, select "Email Accounts." You may have to click the arrows.
Select the radio button next to "Add a new email account" and click the "Next" button.
Select the radio button next to "POP3" and click the "Next" button.
Enter the following information:
User Information

Your Name: Enter your name as you would like it to appear in the "From" field of your outgoing messages.
Email Address: Enter your full Mail address (for example, "user@mydomain.com").
Server Information

Incoming mail server (POP3):


myserver.mydomain.com (or what ever your email servers dns name)

Outgoing mail server (SMTP):


myserver.mydomain.com (or what ever your email servers dns name)

Login Information

User Name: Enter your user
Password: Enter your password.


If you would like to keep a copy of your email messages on the Yahoo! Mail server, select the "Advanced" tab. Check the box next to "Leave a copy of messages on the server."
Click the "OK" button.
Click the "Next" button on the Email Account Wizard, then click "Finished."

Do you mean that?

Hello jguasch,

Thanks a lot for your reply.
My main concern was what goes in the POP3 and SMTP field for remote clients who don't what to use OWA(don't know why!).

Anyway for POP3 I ended up using the public IP address of our Firewall(i.e 147. . . )and I had open the POP3 port on the firewall.
The SMTP, I did the same thing but it still doesn't work.???(I'm still working on it.) I'm also going to experiment with IMAP instead of POP3.

Thank you very much for your reply.

First things first, can you connect to your front end server via p0p3 internally? (inside the firewall). We have to make sure that the service is running right.

It might be looking at it as a smtp relay. Check your smtp relay settings on your mail server. Are you sure you have port 25 open on your firewall and it is forwarding everything to your mail server?

Yes, POP3 is working fine both internally and externally now. Externally, I used the Public IP address of the firewalll an I opened POP3 port.

SMPT however, doesn't work externally. I used the same IP address.

Thanks
