Hi All.

Thought I would do the right thing and went trhough the best practise tool to see if all was ok on my exch server. I had to fix a couple of things but nothing major.

I have stuffed up something now as I can send SMTP mail but no recieve, all internal (x.400) mail works fine. If I send a mail to my domain it displays the recievers address and the message "This address no longer accepts mail"

Anyone able to help ? I have check all MX and A records and all look ok. Running Exch 2003 with SP1

Thanks

Blair

Do all users have an SMTP address in Exchange?  Is there a recipient policy in place that doesn't contain any SMTP addresses?
All users need an SMTP address, maybe RUS messed something up and nobody has a proxy address property.  The message "this address no longer accepts mail" is coming from your server, so that suggests networking and DNS are fine..  Also, mailboxes support, the "Only accept messages from Authenticated users" property, which would also prevent users from recieving external anonymous SMTP e-mail.

In ESM, look for Recipient Policies and verify what the default or any additional policy is setting on the mailboxes.  Modify as necessary, then right-click and update.

For the proxyaddress, use ADSIEdit to find the user in question, then on the property pages, you'll want to look for proxyaddress, if it is blank, then RUS isn't working properly or you aren't using SMTP.  Alternatively look in ADUC and check the general tab of the user's properties for the e-mail feild to verify it's getting an SMTP address.
