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?

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 ****)
