SMTP fails between two exchange 2003 SP2 servers on the same domain. (2003 server R2)
The first exchange 2003 server "mx1.abc.local" is hosting mailboxes for users at SITE A with email addresses @a.org
I have added a second exchange server for SITE B
exchange 2003 server mx2.abc.local is hosting mailboxes for users st SITE B with email addresses @b.org
I have define a SMTP "Connector" to forward all mail out via our isp a with an Address Space of *.
(same isp in both locations) with MX1 and MX2 selected as bridgehead servers on the conector.
I now have a queue of mail on MX1 for MX2 (emails to b.org) and a queue of mail on MX2 for MX1 (emails to a.org) . both queues are saing :
The remote server did not respond to a connection attempt.
We have a VPN between Site A and Site B and mx1and mx2 can ping each other.
Do they need a connector/route or is it some problem with the SMTP virutal servers ?
Client at connecting to mx2 are getting sycronise errors with the Offline Address Book. Do I need to do anything to get mx2 to sync the Offline Address Book?
