How do I redirect all MX to Postini

We have been using a third party service for spam filtering, called Katharion, for about two years. I recently signed up for Postini and switched our MX records (hosted with godaddy) over to them. We use an Exchange 2003 server locally to host our email.

Here is where I need your help - For some reason, we are still receiving mail in the Katharion filters and I still see Katharion information in the headers of new mail I receive. I made the changes over 3 days ago.

Let me know what other information I can provide.

Here is an example of a current email header:

I should add that I see the daily spam reports from Katharion in the Postini User Quarantine, and the daily spam reports from Postini in the Katharion filters.

I have all spam reports from Postini directed to my mailbox for now. Some of them are getting through, but the others are getting stuck in the Katharion filter.

Crazy!

It appears that you have several MX records, two of which look like they are not Postini's servers.  Check again at GoDaddy.  (Are you sure they are your DNS hosts?)

(Take a look for yourself at mxtoolbox.com)

Godaddy *should* be the only DNS host we have. However; you did catch something. Apparently I was tired and hit CTRL-V without paying attention. I'll make the correct changes to this and see if that helps.

I've ensured that all MX records on godaddy are properly set up; and running a check on mxtoolbox shows only Postini MX records. Yet - I am still receiving some email, already scanned by Postini, in the Katharion spam filters. I don't get it.

Does anyone have an idea where I should be checking next?

Thanks!

Here's a copy of a recent header. I released this from the Katharion filter:

I think the next step is to check your settings at Postini.

Looks like mail for your domain is going to Postini first, and then they (Postini) are forwarding that mail to the old spam filtering service, which then gets the mail to your server.

BTW, is your firewall and Exchange set up to receive mail from the Postini servers?

Well, I finally found the problem. There was an incorrect entry in Postini's "Delivery Mgr" I'm sure it's something I put there... and forgot to change.

Thanks for your help!
