Thanks, you have the gist of the question spot on! My only problem is that if I create a new user, and say that the primary email address is xxx@xxxxxxxxxxx, my server still adds an X400 address and only delivers locally! The message never leaves the office! I did as suggested and created a new user with my bigfoot address as the only email mentioned, then used my own account, and set up the delivery options to forward to my test account also. The email instantly appears for me, but never gets to bigfoot! Any other ideas?
