Using exchange server 2003 as an smtp server outside of the domain

For the life of me I cannot figure out how to setup exchange server as
an smtp server so that I can use it to send mail from outside of its
domain environment.

basically i want to be able to send email from any computer not on the
domain by using mail.mydomain.com . I'm not sure if the issue is
actually related to something on exchange server 2003, or if it's DNS
related issue. we do use OWA so wthat when we type in a web browser
mail.mydomain.com it takes us to OWA.

Right now if I try setting up a POP3 Account in Outlook and use
mail.mydomain.com for incoming and SMTP servers it errors saying it
cannot find either server.

Any help is appreciated.

I would stay away from Pop'ing your mail and strictly use SMTP for your mail 
clients.  With Outlook 2003 I would strongly suggest RPC over HTTPS.  If you 
must POP your mail from Exchange you will have to make sure the clients are 
reqiured to Authenticate with thier domain credentials in the setup of the 
client POP settings.  As for setting up Exchange for hosting SMTP please 
refer to this link and post back if you have any further questions,

Outlook 2003 and "Check Names"
Hi, We are testing Outlook 2003 at our office now and there is one very frustrating "feature" that is bugging all of us. When we create a new e-mail message and type in the first name of a person from the global address book and hit ctrl- k to check the name...we get a response that Outlook doesn't recognize the name and there are "no suggestions". The only way Check Name will successfully resolve the name is if we type it last name first (ie, Gates, Bill). This was not the case in Office XP or Outlook 2000. You could search by first name (or partial first name)...

Exchange for remote users/offices
Up to this point i've used SBS 2003 with POP3 (using Popbeamer)...the reason i chose this from the get go was because we have about 15 users here on site and about another 20 that are scattered across the globe.

SMTP Event Sink not firing
Hi All, We have written an SMTP Event Sink to record all email into a database. This works fine for incoming emails but never seems to get triggered for outgoing emails. Is there some reason specific to SBS2003 which prevents this Event Sink from firing?
