SMTP internal mail stuck in Queue; External mail delivers...

Title says it all basically.

All SMTP mail from our webserver bound for an internal email address will not leave the local webserver SMTP Queue. External mail addresses deliver fine, i.e. (someone@hotmail.com). Any ideas here?

What made me catch this was that I was working on a CDOSYS project and noticed that I wasn't getting mail from the SMTP service at all. I checked the queue, bad mail, and drop folders and they were all full of messages, mostly bound for internal clients. We run Exchange 2000 on Windows 2000 server. Standard SMTP setup on the Windows 2000 Server servers.

Any help is fully and graciously appreciated.

Got it.

We removed Exchange's DNS ip, unbeknownst to me, while we were troubleshooting our Denver office's email problems and never put it back in DNS. Smart host was added and it resolved immediately. Problem solved.

Please PAC this and refund my points please. Thanks!
