        Do you have the Automatic Registration parameter of your SMTP 
     attributes set to *YES?  When you send mail to the 400 from your POP3 
     connection, it will cause the 400 to create an entry in the System 
     Directory with the appropriate Internet address.  SMTP can then send 
     the note on its merry way.

I have everything setup properly for sending email inside the company.  I 
have setup the employees with their SMTP address.  I can send email to 
testuser@ex-cell-o.com, and it works just fine.  What happens is that if 
I try to send email to my very own perosnal account, the email goes off 
to la-la land.  I don't even get a message sent back to me stating that 
the message was undeliverable.
The way I want things to go is like this.  All email sent should check 
the POP3 server on the AS400 for a mailbox.  If none is found then route 
the mail out to the internet.  I have my test pc setup with Eudora Light, 
and the SMTP server is defined as the AS400's host name (ex-cell-o.com). 
The SMTP server at my ISP is mail.wincom.net, and I tried sending email 
to sdonaghe@mail.wincom.net, but what it looks like is that since I 
defined the Eudora SMTP server as the AS400, and not mail.wincom.net, it 
doesn't know what to do with the mail, since that mailbox is not found at 
ex-cell-o.com (AS400 POP3).
Any ideas appreciated.
