This was initially working OK then at lunch time I rebooted the server as I had installed Avast anti virus and now mail is not delivered from the POP boxes to users.  The lcoal domain is called bonzagroup.local.  I have logged the process and the mail is definitly collected from the POP box and then deleted but when it comes to deliver I get this error

"An attempt to relay e-mail to recipient <e-mail removed> was made. The e-mail could not be delivered because the recipient's e-mail domain name does not match any local e-mail domains"

I have the same setup with another client with exchange 2000 (although there is an extra tab to setup external address to go to a specific mail box),  where there is no external domain.  I just want to pop 3 different boxes into three different accounts.  The accounts have the relevant email address as a primary.  The email address are for the external ISP

I have seen other posts on this issue and the answers have not been helpfull although I will be using a 3rd party popper in the meantime.  After spending 12 hours on this yesterday and having a client with a new exchange server that does not work and he does not want to spend any more money I see this as extremely urgent and difficult.

Where is the error listed?

Are their any configs in the Anti-Virus that need to be adjusted?

Commented:
The error occurred in the event log (application),  there does not appear to be any thing in the AV that needed set although it is scanning exchange.

UPDATE:  The POP connector is now working when I logged back onto their machine this morning one of my test mails had come in at 10:19,  I have sent a few test mails now and they are all coming through.

I had made a second recipient policy just for those users with the ISP domain, this may have been what made the difference.

Or I can put it down to a WS error (wierd ****)
