if you use a 3rd part configure Exchange to use it

exchange probably can't upload emails to your mail provider using SMTP because it's not configured to do that.

Look on Microsoft Technet under Exchange for configuration using a 3rd part mail provider.

MX record conflict?

by tmalo627 In reply to Sending and Receiving mai ...

If your internal domain and external domain have the same name, the DNS server of your domain name registrar may have the MX record pointing to your old email server. I would contact them to make sure they have been updated with the correct information.

external use .com internal use .local

the are both correct. you cannot have both places with the same name. If you are using 3rd part to do your mail and are not using a mail server yourself, why do you have a 3rd party externally hosting? Or why put your own mail handler in place. If you wish to remove the 3rd part from providing the mail, your mmx records are in need of adjustment. If you want them, drop your mail server and the mx records are correct and they will continue to send and receive your mail for you.
