    fromt those servers.. do a telnet to the exchange server and then try to send a mail to an external domain..
    on command prompt... do this

    tenlet <exchange server ip> 25

    rcpt to:
    Telnet test mail

    check if you get the email on the remote domain...
    Or do you get "Unable to relay" after rcpt to ??

    The above telnet thng should be done from your application Box to the exchagne server...


    also go to properties of default smtp virtual server...general tab-- in the bottom--> click on enable logging.. select ncsa log...

    restart the smtp service...
