Following a session with Symantec attempting to troubleshoot an exchange agent, we now find that we are unable to send email externally.
The NDR is as follows:
Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:

I have attempted backtracking some of the tasks performed during the Symantec call, but to no avail.
The exchange server is on a Server 2008 64bit platform, and was working fine until today.
I have tried adding an additional smtp connector for the server range, but that had no effect. Nothing I do appears to have an effect and I am stumped.
