Timezone change cause Exchange 2007 Stop receiving messages
Posted on 2010-11-14
I have a fully functioning exchange 2007 server, but i need to change the timezone from -3GMT to -2GMT, but when I change the timezone, the SMTP server stops receiving messages.
After i change the timezone, the time AND the timezone that the server sends after a telnet on port 25 stay FREEZED like the following:
220 server.mycompany.com.br Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready at Sun, 14 Nov 2010 16:25:19 -0300
Note that the time and the timezone stopped being updated after my timezone change.
I tried to manually set a SMTP session and the result was:
telnet myserver 25
Trying myserver ...
Connected to myserver
Escape character is '^]'.
220 myserver.xyz.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready at Sun, 14 Nov 2010 16:25:19 -0300
421 4.4.1 Connection timed out
Connection closed by foreign host.
