I have a clean install of Exchange 2003 on an clean install of Server 2003. I have installed all of the service packs and updates for both. This server is also running Routing and remote access as there router for the internet with two NIC one public one private, as well as SQL 2005. Now here is the kicker. If you send mail out of the exchange server it enters the queues and leaves the queues with no errors, but never makes it to its intended reciepiant. If you send mail to the server from and external account it never makes it and you never recieve and error. The event log has a few errors that I have tried to research but none seemed to be the problem. they are:
in the system log
Event ID 12
Description: Time Provider NtpClient: This machine is configured to use the domain hierarchy to determine its time source, but it is the PDC emulator for the domain at the root of the forest, so there is no machine above it in the domain hierarchy to use as a time source. It is recommended that you either configure a reliable time service in the root domain, or manually configure the PDC to synchronize with an external time source. Otherwise, this machine will function as the authoritative time source in the domain hierarchy. If an external time source is not configured or used for this computer, you may choose to disable the NtpClient.
