451 4.4.0 Primary Target IP Address responded with:"421 4.2.1 Unable to Connect"

I am working on an Exchange site (Mixed): 2 servers running 2003 and 2 servers running 2007.  The 2003 side is working fine, but the 2007 side cannot send email to internet recipients.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi,

I also suggest you inspect the protocol log, and also make sure as per my previous reply the  server can connect to the intended target server.

 

You can enable the protocol log for the 'send connector' responsible for delivering messages to those domains through the Exchange 2007 Management Console. It's probably the one with address space set to "*". Once you did that, you should see a protocol logfile starting to grow in %EXCHANGE DIRECTORY%\TransportRoles\Logging\Protocol\Smtp\SmtpSend.

 
That file should give you a clue as to why the server failed to connect. Please also send me those lines so I can assist you better.

Regards,
SAM

Sorry delay response...

It seems that the server is not connect to each other through the port so please check your firewall is not block port. Please also check to disable RRAS service or disable window default firewall.
