Exchange needs to let outgoing mail pass through - How do I do this?

Exchange needs to let outgoing mail pass through - How do I do this?

Exchange needs to let outgoing mail pass through - How do I do this?

This client's email is handled by an outside ISP, not exchange. Exchange handles internal mail only (for now... they don't have a full time connection yet).
When someone internally sends an e-mail to another internal address, for example stu@aes.com, the exchange server delivers it next time stu connects to exchange. When the user (stu) is outside and connects to the ISP, he doesn't gat the mail (because he's not connecting to the exchange server).
So... anyone outside the organization sends something to stu@aes.com, it goes to the ISP and gets delivered whether stu is on the road or in house. If someone inside the company sends something to stu@aes.com, stu doesn't get it when he's on the road.
ANy Suggestions?

RE: Exchange needs to let outgoing mail pass through - How do I do this?

Now you don't want your exchange server available on the internet so that your users can collect their mail from any ISP. This is possible but has many security implications.
A simpler solution is to configure your exchange server to autoforward mail to your mobile users who should in turn sign up for an internet mail account - a Yahoo, hotmail etc accountis sufficient.
To set exchange for autoforward, create a custom recepient and give the user's internet address eg stu@internet.com. Go to STU's mailbox properties and select delivery options then select deliver mail to alternate recepient and select the custom recepient account for the user. You might need to select the option of delivering mail to both recepient and alternate recepient so that when stu comes back to the office he can read all the mails including those sent to him when he was away from your exchange server.
This is a fairly simple task compared to putting your exchange server on the internet. You will be able to switch between delivering to internet and not at a single click.
I hope I have answered your question.
