Hi All,

I recently added a 6 exchange server 2000 to my orginasation, we have one routing group connector in place with all the serves as members including the new one. I can send email internally to mail enabled users on the new exchange server but cannot send internal email to any other server, however they can send email to mailboxes on my new server.

External email does not work from new server.

If i check the queues all the messages bound for both internal users that have mailboxes on any of the other servers, and all external email are queued but never leave.

Any ideas.

Do you have an SMTP Connector in the routing group?
Can the sixth machine see the world? Can you telnet to an external SMTP server on port 25?
mail.microsoft.com for example.

Can you telnet to the other servers on port 25, by all three methods...

telnet ip.add.re.ss 25
telnet servername 25
telnet servername.domain.com 25

Hi Simon.

Thanks for your response, no there is no smtp connector in the routing group, the routing group connector sends all mail to a firewall and then out to the world.

I will try and access these servers via port 25 and post back
