You need to set up a MX record in your DNS to point out your mail server's
location. you need to add a inbound record in IMC to accept the incoming
mail to rerout. If you have Firewall, you also need to modify the rule to
allow smtp protocol go through the FW from that IP address

Please can anyone help?

We have just moved from NT4/Exch 5.5 to win2k/Exch 2k. We have mail
forwarding for our mail domain name from to . I have configured Exch with mail connector to
smarthost of isp and able to send mail no problems, but all incoming mail
is bounced back to sender with following message:
Subject: Mail Delivery failed: returning to sender

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to all of its recipients.
The following address(es) failed: [ip address]:

The isp guy says that we need to have the
registered in Exch in order to receive the mail.

My question is where?

I've put it in The ETERN domain name and also in the address space of the
connector, but still no joy.

Any ideas please (it's turning into a long night...)
