Exchange 2k/5.5 & the internet?

By VanAlex ·
I'm sorry to have to ask such a lame question, but the truth is that I can't find satisfactory help on books about this subject.

I have a small network with non permanent dial up connection. I want to use my own e-mail server to receive/deliver e-mail .... eg. user@mycompany.com.

Setting this e-mail for indoors messaging is no problem, my doubts are about how do I open this company to the internet... I know I have to put some IMS in E5.5 and I know I have to ask some ISP to put some MX dealy in their DNS servers....But that's about it. How about my own DNS servers? How about the exact configuration of the server? It's a basic question but I can't find a clear awnser for this...Maybe because my language is not native english, but ussually I have no problems with that.


So connect e-mail server to net:
1 - DNS? (Mine and ISP's)
2 - Mail connectors?
3 - Etc =)

Thanks in advance.

Tough question to answer without knowing how your current network is setup. Exchange 2000 is a nifty email server [though there are other email servers available]. Exchange 2000 requires Active Directory to work,[5.5 does not] therefore you will need a DNS server. To have incoming email [caveat: "all the time email" incoming and outgoing], you'll need to publish your Exchange Server and have a FQDN host header [and static IP address] from your ISP. You'll also need a certificate for your network / exchange server(s)[Verisign's are about $350 and up]. Mail connectors are configurable within Exchange [NNTP, POP#, SMTP etc].

Clarification Note: Exchange needs Active Directory and Active Directory needs a Domain Name Server.
