Exchange server not sending mail to remote office server

Hello all,

I have a single exchange 2k site with one server in Dallas. We have an office in Denver that connects over a static VPN connection via cisco pix firewall. I've put a new server up there with AD/GC/exchange installed. I wanted to have the server up there handle the mailboxes for the users in denver however. my test account can send mail to dallas and the outside world. The dallas users and outside world can't send mail to the denver test user. The mail stays in the SMTP que on the dallas server till it times out. While the Denver server was here in Dallas it worked fine. Also the denver office is on a different subnet but the ciscos are routing the traffice correctly.

I've checked DNS and everything can ping the denver server. any ideas on how to fix this? Or can someone point me to a good howto on exchange satillite offices?

Thanks
Mike

Thanks Vahik, that was part of the problem. We turned off the mailgard and that issue seems to be fixed but the mail still will not flow to the server in Denver.

Any other ideas?

I cleared the SMTP out bound queues and then this afternoon tried it again and everything worked.

I believe the Cisco Pix mailgaurd was the problem.

Thanks
