Adding a domain to exchange server

By mbarrett ·
I am running SBS 2003 with Exchange 2003 sp1. I added the domain to the recipient policy. Internally the new email addresses work. And they sort of work externally so I believe my mx recods with godaddy are configured correctly. If I try to email user@newdomain.com from my gmail account, it never gets there. But if I send an email from user@newdomain.com to my gmail account and reply to it, I get the message. Any help would be much appreciated!

Additional MX record.

by bart777 In reply to Adding a domain to exchan ...

You need to check the record for Newdomain.com.

Th reason you would get the message back if you reply is that the actual message came from the olddomain.com address.

Try tesing it from here.
Run the e-mail validation test snd see what you get.

Best of luck

Also rebuild RUS

You didn't say if you rebuilt RUS after you updated the Recipient Policy. If not, do so and things should react better.

Also check Message Tracking to see if the inbound test emails addressed to newdomain.com from your godaddy account are reaching the server. If they're reaching the server, then MX is OK.

It works now

Apperently gmail was the problem. I tried with hotmail, yahoo, and aol email accounts and they all worked fine. And after googling it, it seems like this is a common problem between exchange and gmail. Thanks for the replys! Any ideas as to why gmail would be the problem?
