I have a client with sbs2003 std sp1 working fine - no problems
On one of the workstations I have a user and have configured his
outlook 2003 to send and receive emails using exchange smtp etc. This
works fine no problems to send and receive email. The email address is
XXXX@XXXXX.COM

This same workstation has Outlook Express with a pop3 account from bt
internet ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM ) and that can send and receive emails ok
with no problems.

However the problem is that any other user within the sbs domain (eg
XXXX@XXXXX.COM ) when they send an email to the bt internet account
the email just dissappears into the thin air and XXXX@XXXXX.COM
never receives it.

Any person outside the lan can send and receive emails to and from the
bt internet account ( XXXX@XXXXX.COM )

Any help greatly appreciated.

And I assume outside email is being delivered correctly?
In his ADUC user account, have you added XXXX@XXXXX.COM in the Email
Addresses?

Just to be clear, are the other users having problems trying to send *from*
Exchange (on SBS) to an external account??? Your post was unclear as to
what you were trying to accomplish.

Just as an FYI, I don't recommend allowing pop3 in the network. All email
should be going through Exchange and Exchange should have antivirus
protection installed. Otherwise you've allowed a significant attack vector
in your network....actually several attack vectors...actually several for
every machine that you are allowing pop3 connections.

Work email for work. Personal email stays home. Migrating from an ISP
account to exchange can be done with the pop3 connector so it still gets the
benefits of Exchange.

Thanks for your reply
1. it only happens if a user XXXX@XXXXX.COM send an email to
XXXX@XXXXX.COM internally within our lan. Sending emails to
@btinternet.com outside our lan is ok.
2 it happens to all users of @mydomain.com
3. No ndr messages are received. the mail just disappears into thin
air!

I am going to enable the message tracking feature to try and throw
some more light on it.
I will also read up the other links and see where it may lead me to.

I will post my findings in the next few days
