Do you route email out through your ISP using a smart host? If so that is probably the problem.

Otherwise you need to provide more information on the background to the problem.

We are running windows 2000 sbs w/exchange server 2000 and appear to be connecting to a smart host smtp.deltacom.net.

You will need to contact whoever that smart host belongs to and ask if you need to authenticate and whether anything has changed. If it has then you will need to adjust the Small Business SMTP Connector. The authentication settings have probably been changed so will need to set/adjusted in the properties of that connector on the Advanced tab under Outbound security.

would this be a conflicting issue? For some reason under the Default Virtual Server Properties we have a listed smart host of smtp.deltacom.net and under the SmallBusiness SMTP Connector properties we have a listed smart host of smtp.nuvox.net

If you have a smart host on the SMTP virtual server then that over rides what is in the SMTP connector. Do you know which one you should be using?

It is bad practise to put smart hosts on the SMTP virtual server, so I would suggest that you remove it from there then ensure that the smart host on the SMTP connector is set to the correct one. They are different servers, so something has got mixed up somewhere.

You are routing email out through the ISP now? Do you have other SMTP connectors that might have those domains listed on them?
