SO I am setting up Exchange for the first time. I had it all working fine sending mail from exchange. I needed to add POP3 & IMAP access. I got it all setup but now I don't know what changed. I can only send email locally. Email sent to other domains sit in the queues under 'Internet Mail SMTP Connector'. How do I get this fixed ?

Have you tried running the mailflow troubleshooter tool in the toolbox? That may give you some pointers where your problem lies.

Go into the EMC, and then right at the bottom there is an item, Toolbox.

Open that up and you will see a list of tools you can use.

Open Mailflow Troubleshooter and follow the instructions that fit your situation.

Making progress. So it reported that I was using a non standard port (I had changed the port to 587). So instead of changing it I just added 25 so now it's using both 25 and 587. When I ran the report again there was no errors. One email I sent went through but another one going to a hotmail account got this error 'There was a SMTP communication problem with the recipient's email server.  Please contact your system administrator.'
