I am having a strange issue.  We have half the users on Exchange 2003 and half on Exchange 2007 connected via SMTP connector.  I am part of a distribution group: ops@abc.com.  There are other members of the same DL.  Some of the members are from E2K3 and some from E2K7. I get all email addressed to this distribution group, except for one.  We have a script that runs and generates an email with data.  Only users that are on Exchange 2003 are receiving this, but any of the users that have a mailbox on Exchange 2007 are not.  If I look at tracking, I do not see this message in the message tracking.  I am not asure where else to look.  Could this be getting caught in the server as junk.  if so, where do I look?

Thanks
David

Check your content filtering in Exchange 2007

I normally do not use the content filtering as we either have a on site filtering device or a smart host to do that work for us.

Make sure the script or smtp service it is using is the correct one for delivery, and also you probably already checked to confirm no typo's and that the script is actually running to completion.

It is not content filtering as I turned that off temporarily for a test.  The script is using the correct SMTP server as others are getting the email.  I am thining that perhaps my relay setting may be the culprit.

I am looking into this and will report back my findings.

Thanks

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.

OK, I found the problem.  It had to do with the coding in the script that was sending in 8bit.  I found the link below which provided the fix.
