Distrubution list only working internally

I am running Microsoft Exchange 2007 with roles on one server.

I have created multiple Distrubution Lists for this domain before but now any new DL's I create only work internally.

You have to make sure the exchange distirbution lists have an SMTP address that is real (@yourcompany.com) not @yourcompany.local)

Here is the KB on how to mail-enable distribution groups in Exchange 2007.

Thanks LegenZM:
I have checked the 'Email Addresses' Tab and can see both @domain.com.au and @domain.local, the domain email address is in bold which I am assuming means it is the primary SMTP address.

Just to confirm, the one that's bold is the domain.com.au, not domain.local.... right? (since you mentioned "domain email address is bold" and referred to both as domain, I just want to be sure. :P

The one that should be set to 'default' is the @domain.com.au

what happens currently if you e-mail the distributionlist@domain.com.au ? What kind of bounce back do you get? What does it say?

Sorry.
The Domain.com.au is in 'Bold'.

I dont receive any 'bounce back' if I send the email, and if I look within the 'Message Tracker' within the Exchange MMC I can see that the email goes through with Message Info: 00A:

It sounds like one of your connectors is blocking external users from emailing it, maybe required authentication or something is on the send connector... I assume you followed the link in my first post?

Do the old DL's still function correctly?

Also, if service pack 1 is not installed, I would recommend installing it. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=44C66AD6-F185-4A1D-A9AB-473C1188954C&displaylang=en

Yes I did follow your post. Thanks for that.

Service Pack 1 is installed.

We have two domains within Exchange eg. Example@test.com & example @test1.com

Test.com DL's are working externally fine but test1.com only works internally.

Can anyone receive anything at @test1.com internal addresses? like if you sent something to username@test1.com ?

Have you verified MX records in DNS for test1.com, as well as making it authoritative for the domain?

Yes...users within the test1 domain can receive internally and externally.

MX records are fine as users can send/receive mail, and yes the domain is listed in 'Accepted Domains' and is type 'Authoritive'.

I'm out of ideas, from the way it sounds everything is configured properly.... And if your DL has a public SMTP address @yourdomain1or2.com and not @domain.local then it should work, I don't see why previous ones would work and new ones wouldn't.

Indeed it was authentication option under delivery restrictions. Soon as required authentication was unticked - it began to work so thank you Legend your suggestion pointed me in the right direction. Thanks to all who offered assistance! :)
