Error 10060 from Exchange on SBS 2003
Posted on 2008-10-17
We have a client with a network of 12 PCs using SBS 2003 and Exchange as part of that setup. For the last few days none of the PCs have been able to collect their external e-mail (Exchange has a POP3 connector to an external ISP which hosts the e-mail). All are able to send email externally. All are able to both send and receive e-mail internally.
The Event view is showing "An error occurred during POP3 transaction to server <xxxxx..> The error is 10060 (A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond)
We have stopped and restarted the Exchange server. We have stopped and re-started the physical server. We have manually requested Exchange to collect mail and it states that it is doing so but then we get errors in the EVent Viewer. We suspect the problem is at the ISP end but the ISP says it isn't. Any help very much appreciated.
