You could still use your ISP email server as a smart host.

I have something similar.

ISP--------(business broadband)-------ISA 2004------ Exchange 2003 sp1

Exchange is configured to use the ISP's smtp as a smarthost.

I must be new at this because I am lost.
I have no idea where to go next.
This is my problem.
We have a new exchange 2003 server installed and I am having the same
problem with multiple people.
Some emails come back as failures because the virtual SMTP server can not
confirm the dns examples : yahoo and aol.
I liked the days when we just sent all emails from our company to our
internet providers smtp and let figure this all out but instead we send
I can look at the queues and see failures like and 3 emails trying
to get out but no good.
There must be something I am missing here, I have been reading books and
doing searches on the internet and nothing.
