Problem setting up Exchange 2003 Smart Host
Posted on 2010-01-07
I am trying to setup a client's Exchange 2003 single instance server, to use a Smart Host to send e-mail out to the internet through our filtering appliance.
I have my devices setup for opportunistic TLS for incoming connections. I created a SMTP Connector on the Exchange 2003 box (didn't use default VS because I wanted to use two smarthosts and I think the VS only accepts one). I used FQDN for our smarthosts, set everything correctly as I thought and then restarted the necessary services.
On my side, here is what I see in the log files...
Connect from mail.server.net (ip x.x.x.x)
setting up TLS connection from mail.server.net (ip x.x.x.x)
TLS connection established from from mail.server.net (ip x.x.x.x) TLSv1 with cipher RC4-MDF (128/128 bits)
******at this point I have to assume their server connected to mine without problem, using TLS******
NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from from mail.server.net (ip x.x.x.x): 454 4.7.1 (email address) relay access denied from <> to (email address)
I'm guessing they aren't accepting incoming TLS on their side but not really sure. any help is appreciated. This is Exchange 2003 running on SBS2003
