This message means that the smarthost you configured to forward your messages to, doesn't allow your server to use it as forwarder and basically generates a relaying denied message.

so do you think this is something to do with our firewall (PIX) as the smarthost is pointed to the firewall IP address.. could it be that the firewall is only translatting the old exchnage server 66 rather than 95 as well?

Thanks

I'm not too familiar with PIX firewall configuration, but you should make sure that the firewall allows your new exchange server to use it as a relay if you have configured that as a smarthost indeed.

the last time i used pix, granted it was a couple of years ago, but last i checked it's a firewall, not a mail server.

i don't see how anything is working if we're setting the pix up as a smarthost.

per this, [server-14.tower-140.messagelab], do you guys use messagelabs for inbound/outbound?

were not using the pix as the smarthost were using the pix as a firewall.. pointing our smarthost (messagelabs) to our external IP (our pix IP) then the pix translates to the required server at our end.

It was due to the pix firewall i belive.
