Hello I am having problems sending to a couple domains. We have recently upgraded to an exchange 2010 server and everything was working fine. I was able to send email to example1.com with out any issues and all of a sudden we can not. The messages get stuck in the queue with error 451 4.4.0 DNS Query Failed. Can some help shed some light on this error?

Thanks

Is the server using two NICs or something?  It's possible you could be querying a different DNS server then you suspect.  Make sure that your exchange environment is querying your Domain Controller and not some external DNS or something.

try your basic nslookup test
nslookup
set type=mx
example2.com

verify that dns is locating the mx record for the domain

do your windows dns servers use your isp dns servers as forwarders?

Try to create exclusive Send Connectors for the domains to which server is failing to
send mail to and add the MX Records’ IP Addresse as the Smart Host for respective
domains on the Send Connectors and check if you are able to send mails.

The issues was resolved by the following:
Under oraganization configuration , hub transport, send connector, properties, networks, check Use the External DNS Lookup on the transport server.
Then under Server Configuration, hub transport, server properties check the radio button Use these DNS servers: Add your external DNS servers
