A work around
Hi All I have a configured exchange 2003 that is using an internal domain "x.com" Users need to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org but this email is not a part of the organization. The exchange prevent them from sending an email to email@example.com because it is authoritative for the domain "x.com" and firstname.lastname@example.org is not configured on this exchange. How can i work around this problem? Thank you.MCITP Enterprise Messaging Administrator, MCITP Enterprise Administrator, MCSE, MCDBA

Yes, all you described is right. Buts thats the way Exchange works. There is no way to send an Email to a Domain which your Excange Server is responsible for outside of the same Exchange Server.regards Thomas Paetzold visit my blog on: http://sus42.wordpress.com

The first post in this thread is incorrect. While Exchange 2003 by default presumes it is responsible for all email for a domain, it is certainly possible to have email delivered to another server.
