550 5.7.1 Message rejected due to content restrictions
Posted on 2007-11-17
One of our customers has an Exchange 2003 server running on Windows 2000 SP4 (server). They had a major failure yesterday (active directory restore, exchange database repair). I have sent several test messages through their server to various domains without any problems. However, when I send email to my own email address (outside domain) I get the following message:
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

<ctfa02.intranet.caltreefruit.com #5.7.1 smtp;550 5.7.1 Message rejected due to content restrictions>
I have checked the content restrictions on the SMTP connector and cannot find anything. I have also deleted the connector and recreated it.
The receiving server is Exchange 2007 (far-end). It has multiple SPAM options setup. I had figured that it (far-end)was blocking the test message but the error comes from ctfa02.intranet.caltreefruit.com which is the SMTP (exchange 2003) server sending the test message.
Again, at this point I think this is only happening when we send to this single domain. Other test messages to other domains have gone through OK.
Also, one more crazy thing, if I send a message from the receiving (far-end) domain, it goes through fine. Then, if I forward that same message back to the original sender at the far-end domain, it goes through. So, the only thing that is being blocked is new messages sent from the Exchange 2003 server to the outside domain (fresnonetworks.com).
Any helps would be appreciated!
