SMTP Virtual Server Problem recieving e-mail

Windows 2000 SBS
I had a problem with 100 percent cpu usage which I thought was SMTP related but turned out to be GFI mail essentials. Whist troubleshooting I changed various setting in the default SMTP virtual server and now I can only send and not recieve e-mail. My ISP who are holding my e-mails have tryed to deque twice with no success. I would like to know what areas of the virtual server are responsible for collection and what the default config should be.

how do i start to do this?
The number one reason for this is that you have turned off anonymous authentication on the SMTP virtual server. That will stop email delivery from external sources.


If your question has been answered, pleased remember to accept the answer and close the question.
Long-term, you are better off putting ME on its own box. Better yet, put it on a DMZ. The ME manual does a decent job of explaining how to do that.
