Uhh, not to put down the hard work you've probably done to set up the home
lan, but was Exchange 2000 really the best choice for an email server at

Sorry about the undeliverables to email@example.com over the last
couple of days.
I've been wrestling with putting Exchange 2000 on my home web server to
handle non-work email. It's a pain in the ass to get all of the
required services working together without exposing your private network
to the Internet: DNS, Active Directory, Internet Connection Sharing,
DHCP, IIS and BlackIce Defender. Active Directory is a one way trip and
it totally messes with DNS so you have to get things just right before
installing Exchange 2000. It's amazing what you have to do to configure
a semi-protected home LAN.
The good news is I think I've configured everything correctly now.
Sorry for the undeliverables....
