Linux not Receiving Email From Exchange 2003

Having a BIG problem at the moment, hopefully someone can help.

We are running exchange 2003 in a single forest/ domain environment.

We have just installed a linux wiki box which runs an apache webserver&we need to be able to e-mail workspaces which are crested on this webserver.
Eg space@wiki.com

Our normal e-mail domain is host@mainname.com, we have set up a new dns zone called wiki.com specifically to receive e-mail

All MX records and host records look to be set up correctly (running smtp diag shows a successful path from our mail accounts to the linux box)

However the linux box is just not getting the mail.

Not sure how to point the exchange server to forward mail to this box&.Any ideas?

you don't have a smart host enabled on the exchange server, do you?

there are 2 ways to check, on an SMTP connector - http://www.amset.info/exchange/smtp-connector.asp

Or, on the SMTP virtual server itself, ESM > Your Server > Protocols > SMTP > Default SMTP Server > Properties > Delivery
