Hello,

I am getting the message "The connection was dropped due to an SMTP protocol event sink" in my Exchange queue.  I did a Google on it and saw some information here; but I am only getting this error message on just a few domains. All other email is flowing nicely.  

I made sure my external dns is configured in the SMTP connector.  

Is this issue my end or is it on the other end?


Thanks,

Bill

Do these domains happen to include any of the major ISPs like AOL?
Are you on a dynamic IP range or a DSL line?

You will probably need to use an SMTP Connector to route your email through your ISP:
