A couple days ago Daniel Shapiro offered 10
people Virtual Servers hosted by Rack Force.
I jumped on the offer, as I’ve been wanting to migrate this website to it’s own privately
hosted server. It really came down to never having the time to test out hosts,
so this was a perfect opportunity. Shortly thereafter I found out Exchange 2010
hit beta, and I wanted to run it through it’s paces.
After installing Active Directory, I installed the beta, which went really smooth.
Given that it went smooth, I decided to update the DNS MX records for syfuhs.net to
point to this server.
One thing I didn’t realize is you have to set up Receive Connectors and Send Connectors.
The wording is kinda misleading, so I ended up setting my first Send Connector to
only route mail going to syfuhs.net from syfuhs.net. Not so useful. The
Receive connector was the same way. However, this is all similar to Exchange
