Getting a "reason: 553 sorry, relaying denied from your location xxx.xxx.xx.xxx" error on messages sent to def.com [example domain]

I have an SBS server setup for domain abc.com. I want all of my users to be able to receive mail for their name at def.com, so I setup my A name DNS entry on def.com to point to the IP address of my server, same as abc.com is set up.  I added def.com to my recipient policies and applied them, and I tried allowing relaying from xxx.xxx.xx.xxx, but I get the same error.  Any ideas?

You have to do a bit more than that... follow the exact instructions detailed here:  http://seanda.blogspot.com/2004/10/hosting-multiple-domains-on-sbs-2003.html

P. S.  Or perhaps you just left out the @ when adding @def.com to your policies?

I've gone through those steps several times before, just checked to make sure I've still got the @ symbol.  Still a bit baffeled.

I found out that I had mistakenly chosen to use the default DNS servers of the remote host  that I bought the webserver from when I moved my domain over. Messages weren't even reaching the exchange server, but getting bounced at the external web server.  Changed the DNS servers and all is well.
