Last week, I have set up a new DC. However, I’ve encountered a problem wherein whenever I send emails to an email address it bounces back saying that the message cannot be delivered and the address could not be traced in the exchange. These are part of our domain but not actually set up on my local DC.
I have also looked for the address in the AD but I couldn’t find it. Is having the same domain causing this problem? We have about five (5) users that are set up outside of our office that aren’t connected to this exchange, but uses email addresses within our domain. How will I solve this?
Can someone help me with this problem I’ve encountered lately?
Exchange 2010 and email sending problems to same domain name
That is occurring possibly because you have not configured the outgoing mail options well on the exchange 2010 applications. If the problem is only with the outgoing mails and not the incoming mails, then you will need to check the SMTP server settings that you are using on the exchange server.
You will need to check and make sure that there are no misspellings in the SMTP server settings that you are using, for instance using a word like smtp or stmp instead of using SMTP will cause the messages that you are sending to bounce back.
You will also need to check and make sure that you are not using the wrong characters in the address, for instance smtp,gmail.com instead of using full stops as smtp.gmail.com.
