I'm facing this issue of setting up my exchange server 2010 to send and receive external emails (internet emails). Here are my environment details:
Server: HP Proliant ML150 G6 Server with 2gb of ram (this is a testing server).
Server Roles: Active Directory, Exchange Server, Web Server, and later a proxy server.
Internet Connection: ADSL @1mbps connection with a public IP address.
Router configuration: I Forwarded all http and https connections to my server's local IP Address, so currently I can access owa remotely.
Web and Mail Hosting: I purchased a shared linux hosting with a .com domain and 25 email accounts.
My goal is to be able to create active directory user accounts and exchange server users associated with these user accounts, and most importantly to link these exchange server accounts to my mail hosting so these account can send internet emails.
Any idea where should I start?
Thank you very much.
