no external mail access using microsoft exchange

Post by Stuar » Sat, 12 Sep 1998 04:00:00



I have been using exchange for about a week now and can't find a way to send
and recieve mail from my provider.  If I send a message to someone internal
it works fine, but not external.  If someone can help can you tell me what
i'm doing wrong.

Thanks

                Have you set up the internet mail service? (File - New
Other- Internet Mail Service)

    Make sure you aren't trying to retrieve mail from a POP3 mailbox.
Exchange can't do that.  Your best bet is to sign up with an ISP who a)
offers SMTP-only mail services, and b) can queue your inbound mail for
delivery via the ETRN command.  In this situation, the Internet Mail Service
in Exchange Server can be configured for mail delivery in a matter of 15-30
minutes or so, depending upon whether or not RAS is already installed on the
Exchange machine.
