I have Windows Server 2012 RC2 installed along with Exchange 2013 (Datacentre with GUI)
I am able to send emails to external email addresses but they are unable to reply or send to my Exchange mailbox
Please see below for a bounce back email I had when I tried to send to my exchange mailbox (from my pop3 account)
Remote host said: 550 5.1.1 <firstname.lastname@example.org> recipient rejected [RCPT_TO]

So this is your exchange server?
;; ANSWER SECTION:
ady199.co.uk. 3600 IN MX 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
ady199.co.uk. 3600 IN MX 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:
mailstore1.secureserver.net. 265 IN A 220.127.116.11
smtp.secureserver.net. 104 IN A 18.104.22.168
You sure?? Because thats the MX for your domain your sending to ady199.co.uk
Now when I talk to that server he says he is running
p3plibsmtp02-14.prod.phx3.secureserver.net bizsmtp ESMTP server ready
I would think if sending to exchange smtp server, be more like
Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready
As in your kickback saying that address is rejected, if you directly connect to the server listed as your mx for ady199.co.uk and use that address - that smtp servers says sorry
rcpt to: email@example.com
550 5.1.1 <firstname.lastname@example.org> recipient rejected
So that is NOT your correct exchange server address?? Or you don't have it configured to accept mail for email@example.com
"it's a dynamic IP at home"
So you want to send mail from a HOME IP? So sending to no name domains sure prob work if your ISP doesn't shut down outbound 25 like most isps are doing. But can tell you right now your not sending to major players for couple of good reasons. If your on a home IP, I doubt you can edit the PTR for your IP.. And second its most likely listed as a home dynamic IP, major players don't normally accept mail from IP ranges listed as for home use.. Its got a 99.99% chance of just being spam, etc.
Great you want to play with exchange and learn how it works, but don't expect to actual use it for any sort of real mail server on a home connection. Go to the full post
