I just restored an exchange database from backup to a new server, created new user accounts in AD and reconnected to restored email accounts. Incoming email gets the following error.

71.xxx.xxx.xxx does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for [email address} Giving up on 71.xxx.xxx.xxx

Internal email and outgoing email are working fine.

Turns out the recipient policy had the local domain. I changed it to the .com domain and email began working.

Thanks.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Considering the comment itconsultant7717 makes in requesting that this be closed

"abhaigh helped resolve the problem by pointing me in the right direction."

[abh]"do you have the correct Recipient Policy defined for that domain?

[itc]"Turns out the recipient policy had the local domain. I changed it to the .com domain and email began working.

Thanks. "


I'm thinking that point should actually be awarded for this as without my pointing him in the right direction he wouldn't have resolved the issue

I agree with abhaigh. He did specifically point to the recipient policy which was the problem.

I agree with everyone that abhaigh should get points. I honestly thought I gave him points so please forgive me that he didn't receive them. To be honest the point system I just figured out the other day, for example I didn't know you could split points. Also, while writing this a question comes up. How do I know how many points to give, I always choose 500 by default.

on the number of points? depends on how important the problem is, and how fast you want someone to address it

Makes sense. Ok so have I done everything correct up to this point, did you get the points this time.

Thanks again with the help on the original question and even now. Don't mean to be so misunderstanding regarding the point system.

The best way, usually, is to choose his response as the answer. When you request a question to be closed, you can award points, but then the question disappears too (I think.)
