Hi..

Since I installed a new Exchange server a few users are complaining that their emails are not being delivered and are receiving a message similarto the one below.

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
      Subject:  test message
      Sent:     17/06/2008 17:27
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:
      Colin Smith (csmith@leonardgray.co.uk) on 19/06/2008 17:27
            Could not deliver the message in the time limit specified.  Please retry or contact your administrator.
            <mail_server_1.wisemanlee.co.uk #4.4.7>

Also what does the following mean..

The MX records for leonardgray.co.uk are:
"      10           athena.hosts.co.uk
"      10           hermes.hosts.co.uk
