Exchange mailboxes problems

Post by Marko H » Mon, 17 Jun 2002 20:39:42



When I send email to any of my Exchange accounts from my Hotmail account, I
receive this reply from mail.hotmail.com:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.


I believe that MX record in DNS is setup ok. I also configured both POP3 and
SMTP virtual servers in Exchange System Manager to reply on working IP
address that MX is pointing to.
I also configured recipient policy for my domain.

I created mailbox enabled accounts each one with different email address.
However, it still doesn't work.

There is something strange however. None of the mailboxes appear in the
First Storage Group/Default Mailbox Store, even though I chose that store
when I created accounts. Should those mailboxes appear in default store or
not? If they don't, what is wrong then?

Please help,
Thanks

You haven't mentioned the A record. The MX record should
point to a host name. There should also be an A record
which is the host name - IP address.
What is the rest of the message from hotmail ? It is that
the Recipient Unknown or is it Host Unreachable, or none
of the above.
Can you access the mailboxes internally ?

Undo all of the configuration that you did to the POP3 and SMTP virtual
servers. They work correctly out of the box.

Mailboxes are not actually created until they either receive a message or
the user logs on once.

Thank you both. It works now, however I don't know what exactly was wrong. I
restarted POP and SMTP virt.servers and restarted computer, also made some
changes to DNS(Yes I have valid host records)a and now it works.

I just have to try it with another domain tommorow to see if it works for
that one too.

I'll post here if I encounter any problems again.

Thanks

1. Exchange mailbox problem

One of our user transferred to another branch .I already export his
mailbox in *.pst file and gave it to him & I have deleted his SMTP
address & hided his mail box from my server. But when I open his mailbox
on my machine still I am getting new message in his mailbox. In another
branch his mail box is working fine.  If I delete his mailbox from my
server then will it affect to his another branch mail box  ?
