Your message:
From: x@y.com

Could not be delivered because the domain name was unresolvable:

Unable to resolve route y.com (MX) - *

The following recipients were affected:

Please let me know how to send email from outlook to server.

Set up a local dns server, and add an entry for the local server.

That error indicates that the domain in the email address -- y.com in your example -- is not resolvable by the exchange server. The problem is not with the unix server. The exchange server has to be able to "see" y.com.

If this is a test setup, add y.com to the exchange server's hosts file. Check the MS site for the location on your version of Windows, I'm not sure where it's located.

If a "live" situation, then y.com does not have the correct DNS setting to receive mail...no MX record in the zone - if that's the case, no one can send mail to it, not just exchange.
