I need a real exchange guru for this one

By tar12 ·
Here's my problem:
Running exchange 5.5 on an NT4 network. The main bulk of our email comes thru our university servers setup as a web access(a pop3 address). So we set up the users exchange accounts to access the exchange server mostly for scheduling and such. In addition we setup the pop3 accounts on each user's profile and have the address set as their default email.

The problem we have is that any email sent internally stays on the exchange server and does not go out to the pop3 account, even though we have that set as their default outgoing. This causes a problem because half the staff and faculty is offsite several days a week and needs to access their account through the webaccess setup.

Would the best way be for me to setup the exchange server to be scheduling only and not any email? Then have all their email setup for the pop3? And how would I do that?

If your answer gives me what I need I'll gladly give you 2000 points. This is a real problem for my end users.

At the moment it seems as if the POP3 on your client is set to point at your Exchange server. What you need to do is ti setup a DNS entry for the relevant POP3 server and point you outgoing messages at the external POP3 address

Re the answer#1 - the pop3 on the client is set to go to the email.psu.edu server up at our main campus. Where would I put an additional DNS entry? Could you be more specific. I am truly a novice at Exchange. Thanks!

I've only worked with 2000 and AD, but it may give you some hints on how to set up the DNS stuff. In the DNS administrative tool, we have an entry that will point to our Exchange server. It has the type MX and the address is the dns name of our server. To add an entry, I right click on the folder that that is in. Not sure if NT 4.0 is set up like this, I would doubt it. But you may want to hop onto your DNS server and do some exploration looking for something along these lines

exchange 5.5 comes with outlook web mail, if you have a registered IP address for the internet, your users can access all mail from that. example \\exchange\exchange or \\24.0.0.0\Exchange <-the examample ip is not a real address, just use the one you have registered, may have to put 2 nic in the exchange server.

Not an option since the main campus already uses a webmail access and I can't get around that. Am not trying to reinvent the wheel here.
