migrated to a new win2k server, due to meltdown of previous main box. web sourced email is not working correctly. get smtpsvc mail delivery error 4000 "Unable to bind to the destination server in DNS." found confusing/conflicting results at MS. the oddest thing is that the web-email that is not working is our internal admin web site, which cannot seem to send to each other, or to myself. i can send to outside with no problems. this server is not a domain controller, merely a member server. we are running active directory. there are two domain controllers, one of which is my exchange server. could this be a DNS setup issue? Please help asap, i need this up!

have another clue. this is a member/server, and when the permissions/accts were created, they were created as local (IUSR and IWAM are local) even though the computer is fine and on the domain... i don't think the apps that run on this server (which hosts our web page) look locally for their permissions, and instead look to AD. the only thing there is the computer...ideas?

Open your IIS manager:

on the left pane, find your "Default SMTP Virtual server".. click on Properties.

in the properties window, click on Delivery tab on the top.

Click on Advanced button on the bottom.

in the next window, see if there is anything in the Fully-Qualified Domain  field. If not put in your DNS info there and check for DNS.

Click Ok.

let me know if this helps.

ok, this is really close... ended up being that there was no mx record for the new server... have asked ms if this is something that i should have known and should be a manual modification to joining a domain as a member/server... have not heard back yet...
