Internal emails getting caught by IMF on SBS 2003 server

Hello,

The Intelligent Message Filter has just started catching internal emails on our Exchange 2003 server. We have made the following change recently.
-   We have used our server for 5 different domains for 6 months, no problems.  Everyone gets emails to all the domains.  We have used the Reciepent update utility to add the SMTP addresses as we added domains.  A few weeks ago we changed the Primary domain to one of the other ones.  So abc.com was the Primary when the SBS server was installed.  We changed it to xyz.com now.  All 5 domains are still active, we just changed the Primary so that the mail sent out of the organization has the xyz.com domain.

Thanks,
-John

Yeah, I spent several hours on an issue sorta like this.  Turns out GFI Mail Essentials was blocking the email and then it was getting rejected/archived by IMF with a value of 7-8.  After looking through the event viewer and archiving the emails instead of rejecting them I was able to find out it was GFI.

I used IMF Comparison to look at the scl ratings and message headers from the archived messages.
Then, just whitelisted the servers in GFI to bypass the mail essentials :D
Next mession that you are using GFI. ;)
But nice work
LOL, yeah nfmartins, I spent way too many hours doing exactly what you suggested and more.  GRRRRR, I hate it when it's something simple that I just overlook at times.
