We need more details to help you out. Are you trying to send mail through Exchange to the Internet, or do you need to set up an Outlook client to send emails through a POP3 account that is on an email server other than your Exchange server? Please also give us information about what version of Exchange you are using and what version of Outlook.

You cannot send directly from Exchange using a POP3 account that is on another server. You should be able to send email, however, as long as your Exchange server is able to connect to the Internet on port 25 (SMTP port). This means that if you have a router/firewall between your Exchange server and the Internet, you must be sure that port 25 is open and forwarding to your Exchange server on its internal (private) IP address. You must also have the SMTP service running on your Exchange server, you must have the virtual SMTP server set up properly, you must have DNS set up to properly resolve external IP addresses either by forwarding or by maintaining a local cache (or you must set up Exchange to use external DNS servers), and each of your users must have a valid SMTP email address (i.e., user@domain.com) set as their default email address.

Here's a link to part one of a two-part article on setting up the Exchange SMTP service:

Hope this helps!

Now I'm a bit confused. You seem to be indicating that your users cannot send email to addresses outside of your own local domain. The Exchange SMTP service automatically routes email to external domains using a DNS lookup to find the domain's mail exchanger server and then communicates with that server on port 25. If your Exchange server is able to connect to the Internet at all, then there should be no problem routing email to external email addresses. It is pretty much automatic. Problems with this could be caused by DNS issues or firewall issues. Are you getting some indication that external email isn't being delivered, such as NDR's or error messages on your Exchange server? Do you have internal or external DNS servers? Do you have connectivity to the Internet from your Exchange server? Is your Exchange server behind a firewall or in a DMZ of some kind?
