New server install by a newbie
All,We have outgrown our SBS 2003 server w/Exchange 2003. This is server is its own domain with exchange on it. Call it SBS.LocalI have decided to setup a brand new server and put exchange 2007 on it. I installed windows server 2008 and DCPromo'd it and then installed exchange server 2007 enterprise. The new domain is a new forest called MyCompany.com.I have ready about using move-mailbox cmdlet, but not interested in going there. I did an export of my PST file from my outlook client and then re-imported it into the new server. This all worked correctly.On the old server, e-mail would have been sent to mycompany.ca. We had used the POP to poll for e-mail from our 3rd party company that hosts for us.On the new server, It is the MyCompany.com domain, but I still need the addresses as MyCompany.ca to work. Further, after having done all the clean installs and adding my own user, I could not send e-mail to myself; failed to find the recipeint address in the destination server...I am doing this from owa on the server.If anyone has any ideas about how this should be configured or links to articles about the confiruation, it would be greatly appreciated!!!Thanks.

Hi,You need to add mycompany.ca domain as an accepted domain and create email address policy to apply *@mycompany.ca smtp address to users in new domain to start receiving emails.Similar Thread:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/exchangesvrgeneral/thread/5d4bc783-9952-43ca-a060-838571e5c264/Amit Tank | MVP - Exchange | MCITP:EMA MCSA:M | http://ExchangeShare.WordPress.com

You said I could not send e-mail to myself, does it mean that all users in the exchange 2007 environment cant send mails to each other even send to themselves? If thats the case, please provide the following info for troubleshooting: 1. Please describe the exchange topology 2. Please check if theres any error event in the client or server 3. Please provide exact NDR info about undeliverable messages 4. Please use Get-MessageTrackingLog to monitor the trace of undeliverable messages 5. Please use Test-MailFlow to test mail submission, transport, and delivery 6. Please reproduce the issue, and monitor the message with Queue Viewer, if the test mail stuck in the queue, please use this tool to check the last error info 7. You can also use Mail Flow Troubleshooter to check the mail flow References: Configuring Mail Flow in a Single Exchange Server 2007

Thanks! Got it sorted out doing this. Also had to manually add a send connector.
