ive looked at both of these articles and ran the relevant cmds in the MSH.  no settings have been modified.  External sending is setup as default.  The issue still is present.  Must be missing somehting somewhere.

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.
