Thanks for reading!
I have a small network set up for a local office here, and have a fresh install of Exchange 2003 on our sole-server DC.
The network uses one domain, call it ourdomain.net, which is DNSed locally, but not DNSed for the actual domain, so ourdomain.net works from within the network, but from outside, it's just pointed to some domain parking.
I have a completely different domain, call it emaildomain.com, which is currently setup for our website and email, which is hosted with a standard hosting company. We've been using a combination of Thunderbird and Outlook (with local .pst files) for email.
I've been asked to setup Exchange to work with our email, but am not familiar with it. The install seems to have gone just fine.
The question is:
How do I get email from a domain outside our network to work with the exchange server?
Do I need to move the email for that domain to point to our local server (I so hope not!), or can I just set exchange to somehow slurp mail from the existing mailboxes on our host for that domain's mail? Or are there better ideas I don't know to ask for?
Any help very appreciated - thanks!
It's Exchange 2003 Enterprise, on Win2k3 Standard Ed.
