Exchange server DNS (setup)

By mhamilton ·
A groupwise backround in a Lotus Notes company. Now we are upgrading to Exchange. I have the calendar running. (Not hard) One test user couldn't send email out. Thought needed Internet Mail Service. It was that users client but during setting up of that service can't get past the wizard asking for DNS to be setup on the server. Well have set that up for the server by putting server name in host and our .com in the domain name box. Put the IP address for that server in the search order.And wizard still stops and tells me to add the DNS????

Any suggestions ... Did reboot of course..

Thanks

did you set up your MX record under your DNS? for mail to go outside of the network you will have to have this set up. Open DNS manager add your server to the server list if it doesn't already exist. Right click on your domain then select new record and select MX then fill in the blanks.

Good luck

Thanks for the help... Found out it is the MX record part ... The guy who setup that part on the DNS server didn't change the record since that would make the exchange server go live and not the Lotus ... We aren't ready for that yet so might haveto setup the connector during migration or just do a full migration and get it over with ... Thanks again

Me again... The answer about the MX record was a little help... Found out from a guy I work with that he added the server to our DNS which is the Lotus box .. And could see it registered on baboon.com .. I added the IP for the DNS server in the DNS settings on the Exchange server??? Not good enough I guess..
