I'm a programmer trying to support Exchange :)

Emails are getting stuck in queue for outgoing for most recipients.  But I can send to my MSN account wth no prblem.  I assume because MSN is doesn't care about all the liittle things that some businesses do?  Return for Exhange Sys Admin emial is: (editted for security)

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject:      
      Sent:      8/5/2004 8:43 AM

The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      name@myemail.com on 8/5/2004 9:44 AM
            One or more mandatory argument(s) were missing from the recipient
      The MTS-ID of the original message is: c=US;a= ;p=CompanyName.;l=APEXCHANGE-040805124247Z-53

I don't know where to begin...any thoughts?

Try to telnet to port 25
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;EN-US;Q153119&

this will find out if you can communicate with the remote server...we can find out more from there

The domain name is not responding via web site or ip.  BUt the exchange server is directly connected to the internet through sonicwall.  I think the domain problem has something to do with it, but again, we can send email internally and it will send to my @msn.com account, so it gets through for some external.

Hi

Just a thought - What version of exchange is it and what service pack? - you may need to install the latest service pack (if you do - read through the notes accompanying it, and make sure you have the server properly backed up)

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Why would the non-current service pack cause to just stop sending mail?  Doesn't seem logical...but I don't know.

Also, our domain name cannot be accessed or ping, but the Exchange server doesn't interact with the webserver, just uses the domain name.  Could there be a link?

If you can't ping or connect to the domain name or IP, like www.mydomain.com, will email for that same domain name work?

Here is the error when trying to send to my email address for this domain:

The following addresses had fatal errors:
  myname@mydomain.com: 450 [TEMPFAIL] destination not valid within DNS

Think I figured it out, Sprint cancelled our line and deleted the MX record. #%^$&$%^*

MicroTech, thanks for the point to TelNet

Thanks.

I had the same message today, but the problem that cuased the message was not an MX record.  

It seems that some anti-spam software is now starting to use PTR records to validate the hostname of the sending server's IP address versus the hostname contained in the SMTP headers.  If they do not match then they message is rejected immediately.  This is the case in my domain where the internal (private) hostname of our exchange server is different from the registered hostname on our public DNS servers (also for our security purposes).

I am not aware of an easy way to remedy the situation without revealing our internal addressing.
