i am having issues with my exchange server allowing mail to relay through it. I have everything setup correctly and just noticed that i can't telnet to port 25 from any of the Allowed ip addresses i have in the print screen. This was working at one point and looks to me like it just stopped in the past week or two. I am still able to send regular exchange emails internal/external any ideas.

So if you look at the image i am on the server 172.31.9.5 and i try telnet 172.31.1.202 25 it doesn't work

172.31.1.202 = Exchange 2003 Server???

no new firewall or AV

from 172.31.1.224 and 172.31.1.40 I can telnet

but from 172.31.1.200 I can't telnet

what could this be????

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
