    MS Exchange 2003 - mails not getting through

    Hi all

    I hope you can help me here cos I am really going nuts!!.

    I just setup my new exchange 2003 server. I am running it on a domain
    controller and its integrated with active directory. I also setup the server
    as a primary DNS server. I just joined 3 PCs with this domain and all DNS
    records are OK and I have all alias host records with the correct IP. Ping
    is fine from server to clients and also vice versa.

    Problem is that although I can configure outlook on all PCs with username
    and everything, the emails I am sending between each other is not arriving.
    Also outlook is not giving errors...emails just wont arrive in any of the
    mailboxes! Is there something I can check to see why they are not getting

    Thanks a lot !

    hi fren, what u can check is whether the services like smtp,nmtp pop3, are
    1. not blocked by the firewall.
    2.these services are run in the startup (or u can manually run these
    services).u problem may be solved.
