Hello everyone,

i'm having a strange problem we have a sbs 2003 r2 server. Which since yesterday can't send e-mail but can not receive e-mail. First I tried to telnet externally which didn't really respond i only get a blank prompt and not usually mail service tekst.

Also I can't ping internally from a computer. But then i thought what if I do it on the server 127.0.0.1 at port 25 but also no response.

Then i thought it was the virus / spam filter. Deleted those ones. But still no telnet connection. Now I'm beginning to get out of options.

It seems your SMTP service is down. Please verify that the SMTP service is up in the Services applet

I have seen this behavior if you are using some end-point anti-virus solution like AVG Enterprise. If it's not configured correctly, the SMT server may become in-accessible.

Did you recently install or update your antivurs/anti-spyware/local firewall?

Also check to see what TCP port is actually configured under the Advanced dialog box of your "Default SMTP Virtual Server" properties
