I am having an issue that maybe someone can save some of the hair on my head. I installed exchange 2007 on a server running server 2008 (64-bit). The server is up, I am able to connect client pcs to the domain, ect... I know that it is not the best practice to install exchange on the DC, but I only have one server in the domain. I install exchange without errors. I setup a mailbox and login to owa locally. I am able to send emails to local account without any errors. I attempt to send to an external email and get an error "unable to connect to directory server". I then added that same external email address to my address book, then attempted to send the email and it sends without error. I can also send email to external addresses if I had received an email from that address prior. What did I miss? Any help would be greatly appricated. Rob

HI C2w,

Exchange 2007 default configuration is not like Exchange 2003, if you have installed Client access, HUB and mailbox servers properly, you can start sending mails but when talk about external emails you have to create address policy for the email address, Send connectors and receive connectors. otherwise you wont be able to send mails and receive emails.

FYI: Exchange Server in the same DC is TOOO RISKY.
