Hi, I think I have given up trying to figure this out by myself. If someone could walk me through the process that would be great.
I am running windows server 2003 and am trying to get exchange 2003 to work. At the moment, I am using a dyndns domain name which could possibly be adding to my troubles.
So, without really knowing any knowledge of any of this software beforehand, what i managed to do was to setup an active directory and install exchange. My first goal was to be able to use the virtual smtp server to send messages and that is where i got stuck. I was able to send messages from a computer to the server but all of the messages get stuck in the queue and never get sent.
I have forwarded port 25 and have had it unblocked from my ISP so that shouldn't be the problem.
Through all of the research I have done, people keep mentioning MX records. I think I understand what they are but maybe not.
So, if someone could tell me exactly what needs to be done on a fresh windows server 2003 install that would be awesome!
