Hello,

I have an exchange SBE 2003 organisation, where i am trying to setup SMTP connector to forward outside domains to my ISP.  If i look at the SMTP connector queue's it the email's just seem to build up and don't get passed.  Am I missing a setting?  It used to work with SBE 2000.

Check your DNS settings and make sure that your exchange server can resolve the external domains.

I did a nslookup mail.myisp.com and it is able to resolve.

Did you defined the  Smart host in your SMTP connector as the ISP SMTP server ?

try sending the mail using Telnet.

What NDR are you getting ?

Ah Fixed,

I re-created the smtp connector, used the directions you have provided, rebooted server and it worked.

Thanks.
