I know about MX records, have configured SMTP and mail leaves my PICKUP folder on inetroot folder within Windows Server 2008 but I am stumped on where I actually configure the email addresses before I add them to Outlook 2010.
I use Outlook as mentioned but when trying to set my email up (email@example.com) it asks for a username and password (I have not created a username and password, or this email in effect? Do I use the username and password used to log-onto the server?
When using EKM Mail subscription they made username and password for me, was this just a user account on the server or is there somewhere to configure this and the email itself?
Am I right in thinking once you've set up and configured a domain and an SMTP server for that domain, you can go ahead and use firstname.lastname@example.org as an email address? And the username and password is infact the username on the server E.G Administrator and the password is the one you created to log into the server.
I have used an email.rbs (I believe it was .rbs) file that stated "email sent" so I know SMTP is working.
Microsoft Exchange in itself is a mail server, which is what I have set SMTP up for myself, to avoid needing this and its cost right?
As mentioned I am using outlook to try to receive from mail.upnorthsound.co.uk but it fails to log on to incoming mail server (MX record setup with 123reg some time ago). I also get an error when Microsoft tries to send the test email.
550 5.7.1 Unable to relay
I have also tried to use smtpdiag.exe to get a black screen flash of the window but the .exe will not open.
Please take it lightly on me, this is my first time configuring a server and I'm learning slowly. This is the only issue can't seem to get past at the minute. Thanks for your time in advance and as I say take it easy on me if this is a stupid question.
