Exchange 2007 and Windows 2008 AD / DNS

My mail server receives email perfectly.  When I send a message from Outlook, it goes into my sent folder but never gets delivered, internal addresses or external addresses.  I do not get an error message, nor does the message get queued.  When i try using message tracking, it doesn't even show the message as being sent.

can you try using the OWA
tech-Author Commented:
owa does the same thing....

I am thinking it has something to do with DNS and the mx records to route mail automatically

BusbarSolutions ArchitectCommented:
first make sure that 2 users can send/receive internally, can you do that, any errors in the application logs on the exchange

I cant do that.   Should I try disjoining the mail server from the domain and rejoining it?   I recently changed from 2003 to 2008 AD using same domain name and different dc names and addresses
BusbarSolutions ArchitectCommented:
no don't do that.
any errors in the event viewer, make sure that all of exchange services are running

tech-Author Commented:
