I am having a serious issue with my WAN router. I have an outlook webserver that has both private and public address.

Here is the connection:


The private address is what LAN user use to access the webserver while anybody on the internet use the public address.

The issue am having is that I can send mail from my LAN to the internet using this webserver but i don`t get to receive mails.

I did a test and sent mail from my webserver which is [email protected] to my hotmail which is [email protected] and verse versal but to my surprise i checked both mails, in my hotmail i got the mail "[email protected] subject test but i didn`t get the mail I sent from hotmail to [email protected]

Where did i get it wrong, can someone please help me.

Are you able to ping the web server from outside and try to telnet to port 25 from outside to your web server. This will test the connectivity. I guess the problem you are telling is most probably with your Server setting rather than WAN router configuration.
