Exactly what it says on the tin :)

Just installed Windows 2008 SBS and popped on Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 but I'm unable to get the notifications sending.

I've confirmed that port 25 is open for sending mail, I've set up a recieve connector that allows mail from IP 192.168.1.2 to 192.168.1.2 (the IP address of the SBS box).

I've got the email and pager set up so that it sends from Administrator@domain.co.uk and is sending to BackupExec@domain.co.uk (both are users that have mailboxes) and then the BackupExec mailbox forwards to Backups@OtherCompany.com.

I don't know why but I just can't get the mail going anywhere...

I know Exchange 2007 is a bit snooty about things, and I'm guessing theres just a single tick box somewhere that needs to be ticked... any ideas?

I miss exchange 2003 :(
