Hi,

We recently installed Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008 and everything has been running great. I do have one company that we are getting this error with and usually I wouldn't care as much, but it's our medical insurance company! I've attached a screen shot of the error and the details of the message in the queue. I also did an NSlookup form the server and it does return three mx records for the company. I'm lost and would like some guidance. There is no Edge server. Everything is on one server with our Sonicwall 3060's ports opened for SMTP 25. Any help would be great!

Thanks,
Matt

Looking at the properties of the hub transport, I have Use All Available IPv4 Addresses. I only have one nic set up for this server. I'll attach a file with the properties. Thanks

No dont try external....
Under the External DNS lookup Tab.....
Select the sceond option "Use these DNS Servers" and mention the IP of the internal DNS server
Remember for thsi to work....firewalls should allow port 53 for DNS resolution
After this is done try sending out an email to your insurance company again

I just did what you said and still I'm getting the error. I choose external dns, but used my two internals and changed the firewall to let anything from the LAN go to that port via WAN.

Also going back into the External DNS Lookup tab
Select "Use these DNS Servers" and put in the ip of a public dns server such as 4.2.2.1
Now what happens?

Here's what I get:
220 smtp3.alliedbenefit.com ESMTP (ce8c9da09efd0f5b632bce478ae433d8)

The other 2 in the mx record don't come back with anything.

Did you restart the transport service after making the 4.2.2.1 modification?
 
ok go back to telnet
Do a telnet localhost 25
ehlo
Should list 18 odd exchange verbs...then do
mail from: someone@yourdomain.com
rcpt to: someone@recipientdomain.com
and send out an email using telnet
does it get delivered...it should say queued for delivery

Another suggestion is to specifically create a Send Connector for this domain using external DNS and then check
