Invalid Connector Primary target IP address responded with 4.2.1 Unable to connect

When installing a new Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, I can send and receive mail internally just fine. However, when I attempt to send mail to the Internet, I receive the following error: "Invalid Connector Primary target IP address responded with 4.2.1 Unable to connect"

what are your settings on the smtp connector?

Thanks for the quick reply. Would you please explain your two questions? What settings specifically am I looking for on my SMTP connector? What settings specifically am I concerned with on my DNS server?

are you setup to route mail via dns, or forward to a host
do an nslookup and try to resolve a few domains outside yours.
if you can resolve www.microsoft.com, then it can probably resolve thier mail information to.

I see what you mean. Yes, the nslookup is working and I'm not using a separate host for e-mailing.

The solution was that there was apparently an obscure setting in the firewall preventing the connection from occurring.
