Outlook Error though I think it is a MS Exchange issue in SBS 2003

Getting an error in Outlook.

"A configuration error in the e-mail system caused the message to bounce between two servvers or to be forwarded between two recipients."

They are configured to receive their email with Outlook using PoP3 but are storing their email in Exchange.

Any ideas as to why this would be ONLY happening on internal emails with attachments?  I feel like it is something simple that I missed somewhere.. but just cant find it.

Hi,

You state that the users download their mail using POP3 (from where?) and then store the mail on Exchange.  You then say that the error only takes place when sending mail internally with attachments? (How are your users sending mail - via Exchange or SMTP to external host?)

Maynard

They download their email from an e-mail hosting facility offsite.

SMTP is the default mail configuration.  So I imagine they are using Exchange for internal email.  It just doesnt make sense that it only happens when there is an attachment.

OK... This is like drinking bitter java.... but lets go.

What I need:
-  All E-mail config (substetute names if you must, but keep the domain names constant)
-  Check for (deliver using)
-  Check the Exchange Recipient policy for the domain name that the exchange server expects to see.
-  Any enteries in the application event log of the server and the workstations that we need to look at would be nice. (you can export the event log to a CSV file)

Lets see what we can do for you.

This should be the solution to your problem:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/288175

However if you have enabled the MTA Stacks on your Exchange Server you shouldn't need to unless you have CRM 3.0 installed.
