Is there a way to test to see if 2003 Exchange is relaying?
Posted on 2006-07-21
Hi all, I really thought I had my server setup properly, but in the past week or so something has slowed it down. I just recently installed Symantec's Anti-Spam product, but other than that I can't think of much that has changed.
I am running 2003 Server with Exchange 2003. We are small (less than 20 mailboxes), but just this week I started getting Symantec Email Proxy messages stating that "Your email message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject of Deleivery Status Notification (Failure) was unable to send because the connection to your mail server was interrupted..." Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Well, we are not sending anything to this address. THere are some outgoing messages sitting in the queue but not many. I'm just wondering if something has somehow hijacked my email server and is forwarding messages. I'm not sure how to check.
The server must be booted at least once a day or it runs at a snails pace. It may not even have anything to do with mail, but this is the first place I am looking (besides checking for viruses).
Any help would be greatly apprecitated. Thanks in advance
