A few hours ago, our exchange system began rejecting almost all incoming emails, giving a failure code of "550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable or not local." We can send out, and receive internal email, and receive emails from sbcglobal.net, but nothing else.

I have rebooted the exchange server (we use small business server 2003 with exchange 2003).

Help - what can I do??

I reading the info you provided on the SBS Newsgroup, I'd say that LunarPages messed up your DNS Zone file and you need to contact them ASAP to rectify the situation.
