exchange 2007 not accepting outside email

Hello, I work for a small company that runs Windows 2008 and Exchange 2007. When I added my account, I can send\recieve internal email, email outside the domain, but I cannot recieve emails. (user unknown)

My company owns both the .com and .net addresses. I created a second SMTP account and still had my email rejected.

So I took an existing account and copied it, with the same result. here is the NDR
testuser@enterprisemobile.com>:
206.83.81.71 does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 5.1.1 User unknown Giving up on 206.83.81.71.

Does anyone know what else I can do to fix this? We added a new user just a couple weeks ago and his account setup with no porblems.

you can see the NDR yourself, my email address is dhixson@enterprisemobile.com

You are right, send\recieve internal no problems, I can email outside the domain (to yahoo, etc) with no problems. But if you hit reply or type a new message for me it says user not found and the email is rejected.

All other users do not have this problem, its only me. I just started work here and the Director of IT setup my AD and exchange.

I have not tried a telnet session yet

Have a look at the following document to make sure your account is set to allow all users to send emails to your account.
I had this problem with a new Distribution Group I set up and this cleared the problem.

 Adding Recipients to the Recipient Block List
As explained in Recipient Filtering, you can configure recipient filtering to block inbound messages for specific recipients in your organization. If an inbound message contains a recipient that is on the Recipient Block list, the Edge Transport server sends a "550 5.1.1 User unknown" Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) session error to the sending system.

but itd only me having this issue. Everyone else can receive emails from outside the company just fine. My boos even took his acct and copied it to create my acct. He can recieve outside emails but I cant. Any help all all would get me out of this bind.

In exchange management conole reciepent filtering the only box checked is block messages sent to reciepeints in the GAL.  When my account was created it took several days for my name to show up in the GAL. before it did the only way to find was was using the GAL features. I think the edge server just does not know my email address\account is out there.

Go to your user Mailbox setings in Exchange Management Console.  On the Mail Flow Settings Tab, Double-Click on the Message Delivery Restrictions.
Who are you set to Accept Messages from?
If set to only the following list and none are in the list, then select All Senders.  Make sure that Require that all senders are authenticated is not selected regardless of the All Senders / Only Sender option.

ok i think i am getting closer. on the edge servers, under the CN=users everyone is listed there but me. that would make since becuase everyone else can recieve outside email. I cant find my name anywhere, but when I try to create a user for myself under CN=users it says the account already exists (dhixson) but I do not see is anywhere. I does not look like I can do a find command in adsi edit, any recommendations?

Alan HardistyCo-OwnerCommented:
Can you post a screen shot - mask the users if you have to.  Just want to follow where you are looking and offer some suggestions.  Not overly familiar with Edge servers!

Simple step - but possibly one that may work - can you reboot the server please?

Okay - that's a shame - sometimes it's that simple!
Can you work through this document - not sure if the Recipient Update Service is working properly.  Please troubleshoot this to rule it out.
