Before you can connect to your new server from the Internet, you need to configure the external domains, or URLs, on the Mailbox server’s virtual directories and then configure your public domain name service (DNS) records. The steps below configure the same external domain on the external URL of each virtual directory. If you want to configure different external domains on one or more virtual directory external URLs, you need to configure the external URLs manually.
