We have a Panasonic DX-2000 fax machine that has the ability to send faxes through email.  We just upgraded our Exchange server from 5.5 to 2003 and are now having problems getting it to connect.

I have already given our entire network relay access in the SMTP Virtual Server properties.  I can also telnet to the exchange server and relay as the fax machine.

telnet 25
mail from:
250 2.1.0 OK

rcpt to:
250 2.1.5

354 Start mail input; end with <CRLF>.<CRLF>

This is a test.
250 2.6.0 <> Queued mail
for delivery

I receive the email a few seconds later...  Is there something I'm missing?
