a pop3 configuration uses smtp for sending messages (default port 25)
outlook for exchange uses port 587

check the receive connectors on your hub transport servers for these two (Default SERVER should listen on 25 and Client SERVER should listen on 587)

Is the outlook in the same LAN or outside the network - (from home)?

did you setup outlook with an exchange server ?
Can you ping the exchange server by name from your workstation.

Close outlook
start > run > outlook /rpcdiag

what does the connections monitor say ?

thanks

hello all
i run the diagnostic and all is fine except this error:
'MSExchangeMailSubmission' service on server Exchange-03 was not found to be installed. This service is required for messages submitted by clients to be submitted to the Hub Transport server for subsequent routing.

any ideas ?

that service should be running on the mailbox server as it notifies the transport server of a message

check all microsoft exchange services on your mailbox and hub transport servers
make sure all services set to automatic are running

you can also look on your hub tansport server for back pressure events in the application log

outlook exchange uses the "Client SERVERNAME" receive connector
are you attempting to send messages while on the interal LAN?
do you have anything that would be blocking port 587?

from your workstation where you cannot send a message
attempt a telnet session on port 587 to the hub transport server

telnet hubserver 587
