Our server runs on MS Business 2003 and boots with the following mess:

"SMTP could not connect to the DNS server ''. The protocol used was "UPP". it may be down or inaccessible."

How do you correct this problem?

    I think Exchange server install with server .
    DNS configured with server is it ?
     if "yes" then add network adaptor DNS IP as its local IP. dont configured as external ISP DNS.
    and configure external DNS  IP  ,in  under forwords tab of local DNS Server .

    Accepted Solution

    one word mistake  , ( not forword , its forwarders )

    Configure ISP DNS IP   under forwarders tab of local DNS Server . ( administrative  tool > dns > right click and >properties > "forwaders" tab )
