Exchange Server SMTP Help

By maddiuex ·
Okay, Here is the problem.
Building a Exchange server 2000, and need help with the SMTP. lets say Server name is NTLAW and the The Domain is called DOMAIN. THE ISp has a hold and storage on the mail that sends the mail to the ISDN IP of 63.0.0.0 <-example. HThe users emails are admin@anyname.com, But the server name and domain has to stay the same as above. How do I tell the exchange server to look at the ISP and receive its mail. and then send it to the users mail that is setup in the postoffice. so lets say I set up keithmaddox@keith.com and the username is Keithm on the server. .....HELP

You can use ETRN in Exchange. Here at the office, whenever our exchange server goes down, all mails queue at our ISP storage and as soon as our server goes up, it queries the ISP's server and gets all the mails. It can be set so that all mails go directly to the ISP's server and your exchange server can do a query for new mails every X time.

Try this article, Using ETRN in Exchange Server

(remove spaces in the url)

hope this helps.

There is 2 things you have to configure. One to make sure that your users email address is always in the form of @anyname.com. And 2, that you exchange server exepts email for the domain anyname.com.
1. In the recipients policy (Open up System Manager, Expand Recipients double click on both the default policy and the site policy, under the email addresses policy tab) make sure you have anyname.com set as default.
2. In the SMTP connecters properties (in System Manager Expand Administrative Groups > Site name > Servers > Server Name > Protocols > SMTP > Default SMTP Virtual Server, right click on Default SMTP Virtual Server and choose properties, click the delivery tab, click advanced) make sure that in the box Fully-qualified domain nameyou have anyname.com (you can put any host name in the form of Host.anyname.com if you want).
3. Expand Recipients > Recipient Update Services, right click on all the items on the right, and choose both Update now, then Rebuild and answer yes on the rebuild question.
In your case where your email is held by your ISP until you pick it up. You have to find out if the only way the will let you have the email is thru POP or will they also give you SMTP? If they only give you POP then you will have to use a 3rd party program to collect the POP email and distribute it in you exchange mail boxes, one such program is POPBEAMER.
If they allow for SMTP relay then it is best that you configure your exchange server with your ISP tech support.

ETRN only works if your ISP has setup thier SMTP Server to allow ETRN. Otherwise it will not work. Thats why I said you should contact your ISP and work with them if they use SMTP Commands, like ETRN.

Thanks guys both answers was great, Turned out it was a stupid mistake, When nameing the Domain DNS, I used www.anyhost.com instead of just anyhost.com. I Rebuilt the server and used the new name and BAM, everything works fine. Thanks though
