I have Exchange 2010 running on Windows Server 2010 with Custom DNS and Mailhop Outbound.
I have Exchange setup and configured. I can send and receive internally but I can't send or receive from/to external.
My first issue is I have no idea where to configure the mailhop outbound, and when I find where to configure it, I need to know what settings I use for mailhop outbound.
For incoming I have no idea where to start. I configured pop3 to run on port 547 and I'm able to connect to it but I can't download any messages; even ones that were sent internally.
Ideally I'd like to setup ActiveSync but that should just work but I can't figure out where that is going wrong....
Help me please :)
There's an article on configuring MailHop Outbound with Exchange on the DynDNS site. While they don't list Exchange 2010, it should be similar enough to 2007 that by comparing the settings and using the Exchange 2010 documentation you can get it working.
For incoming you want to change POP3 back to the default ports. You need to configure SMTP for inbound (and outbound) email - ensure you've forwarded 25/TCP to your Exchange server. If your ISP blocks port 25/TCP then you'll want to use an alternative port - see the same MailHop documentation for more information - and MailHop Relay. Services like MXToolbox will allow you to remotely check port forwarding for SMTP.
Edit: You'll find this Microsoft article on Send Connectors useful, it covers the Exchange 2010 specifics.
As I suspected... it took about an hour to get setup and working with Exchange 2003. I'm really not sure if I want to try with 2010 again or not. My issue with 2003 so far is that Active Sync doesn't really seem to work all that well and I heard there are vast improvements in 2007 and 2010.
The Exchange 2003 are pretty accurate though. Worked first shot.
