there must be something changed, maybe SP2 tunned the security in the server, disabled something was enabled or vice versa!!

these web sites uses an object called CDO to send the email. we didn't use the rely in exchange SMTP virtual server since these applications were developed. we noticed that emails stopped being sent through these applications. should we add the web server as granted in the rely option in exchange server??
