I have a receive connector setup in Ex2007 to allow some of the application servers on our LAN to relay through Exchange. I used this article to create and configure the receive connector: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2006/12/28/432013.aspx
. This works just fine for most servers, however we have one project management application server that this feature fails on intermittently. I need to be able to track these messages to determine at what point they are failing. The application server only asks for the ip address and port (25) of the mail server, it doesnt ask for any username/password to authenticate with. Using the message tracing feature in EMC I am unable to find any of these messages, whether they failed or whether they were successful.
Personally, I do not think that Exchange is the issue, I think it is something faulty with the software application of the application server. However, in order to prove this to the vendor of this application I need to be able to track the message to determine whether it is not relaying through Ex2007 or whether it is not even reaching Ex2007. What's the best way to do this, either with Exchange or with some other utility. Thanks in advance.
