I'm running Exchange 2003 on Server 2003. I've created email distribution lists via mail-enabled public folders. The problem I'm having is that when I send emails to the distribution list, comcast.net is the only one that doesn't recieve emails from my list. In Exchange System Manager, it tells me "the remote server dropped the connection" and in Event Viewer, I get the following error for every comcast.net recipient:

"This is an SMTP protocol error log for virtual server ID 1, connection #900. The remote host "63.240.76.26", responded to the SMTP command "rcpt" with "452 too many recipients with no from address, send more in a second session  ". The full command sent was "RCPT TO:<xxx@comcast.net> NOTIFY=NEVER  ".  This will probably cause the connection to fail."

How can I resolve this? Comcast is the only ISP i'm having this issue with.

What you are being caught on is an antispam measure. Comcast is detecting that you are sending to a list of email addresses and blocking the connection. A common spammer trick is to put all the emails in to the BCC field, then a single email address in the TO field and then send away. Doesn't expose their address list, but makes it simple to send the message in bulk.

Are all of these email addresses in the list external? If so you may want to look at a different tool for sending the messages. Exchange is a very poor list server and there are far better products on the market.
