Hi,
my company runs Exchange 2003 on W2K3 AD, it was setup for user has email address with .com (e.g. user@abc.com), it will send out to the world. If user has email with .local (e.g. user@abc.local), it will only send internally. Now the problem is all .local emails were not able to send out by scripting such as alert notification by mail feature. I need help with Exchange configuration cos I am not a guru with Exchange. Thanks I am appreciated.

Users should not be using .local address as there primary address. There address should be a public registered domain name like .com .co.uk etc. Check the recipient policies to see what address's mailbox's should be stamped with and what the primary address should be.

we use .local address for just intranet only. However, some system servers will use scripting to send notification to users with .local address via Exchange as SMTP. But it didn't send out. I tested the scripting to send to .com email address, then it worked. so I believe this is not system scripting problem. it is a email address issue.... any idea?

Like i said you should not be using the .local address. You should be using the address that is set as the primary in your recepient policy. Check the tracking logs if you want to see mail delivery.
