Exchange Servers Setup >> Email Setup

A client of mine recently purchased a Dell server with MS SBS2003 standard
preinstalled. When the server was setup, it was named the same as her email
domain which is hosted elsewhere. We are finding it very difficult to send
and receive email and wonder if this is the problem or if I should be looking
some place else.

Example, the server is named "company". (BTW, Exchange works fine in house
for email between clients on the network.) External email is going to

for web access but the "company.com" domain is hosted at a third party ISP.

I'm pretty new to exchange and would REALLY appreciate any ideas. We are
open to hosting the company.com domain on the DELL server as well but worry
about security and the similarity of names.

Exchange Servers Setup >> Email Setup Internal email works - so Exchange is ok. If you can't send out emails, I'd
suspect DNS. If you can't receive, check the ISP MX records. You'd also need
a local DNS entry for www pointing at your external hosted web servers IP
address.

Exchange Servers Setup >> Email Setup Thank you VERY much for the quick response. Do you know if there is a white
paper or troubleshooting guide/tool that would help me work out the possible
DNS problem? Thanks again!
