Exchange 2010 relay through Exchange 2003 to external addresses

Hi, I have just installed a new Exchange 2010 box in our network which has an Exchange 2003 server. The 2010 box sends through a connector via the 2003 box.

From a mailbox on the 2010 Server, I am able to send mails internally. I cannot send to external addresses.

I have added the 2010 IP addresses to the 2003 Virtual SMTP Server Relay Restrictions list (allowed).

I've found the issue. We are using Exclaimer Anti-spam and I have to remove the tick in the anti-spam rules for "Recipient not in AD".

Have you made any changes to your DNS in the last 30 to 60 days? Make sure the Exchange server is pointing to the correct DNS server.

No changes to DNS. Exchange1 points to the local DNS server.

This is a brand-new 2010 box and I have just moved a mailbox over and tried to send mail externally. I'm sure it's something to do with Relay permissions.

Note that I have IP V6 enabled.

In your smtp connector do you have the w2k3 connector specified as the local bridge head server?
