Does the customer already have an email account & domain name ? If they do and it they receive their mail via POP3 mail, you can configure echange to collect the mail and distribute to relevant users.

What sort of intetnet connection does your client have ? if they have Broadband with a fixed IP address you can set up your domain to send your mail direct to the exchange server and all mail will be routed by exchange. If you do not have a fixed IP address then you need to set up a POP3 mail box with you ISP. Then you need to configure the POP3 connector in exchange to retriev the email from your ISP. You can then set up routing rules to ensure the correct users get the mail that is intended fro them.

thanks gettin there!!

yea the client has an NTL Account that goes through there TV/CABLE setup, and the Cable box is a mini dhcp server - think! but i can see what your getting at.

so they have an account with there ISP, so now do they need to buy an domain and notify the ISP?? what happens next?

i appreciate the support
