You have probably taken off the Anonymous Authentication from your Receive Connector / SMTP Virtual Server - that will kill your mail-flow dead in it's tracks.

What version of Exchange do you have?

I have verified that it is enabled but still no luck?

Okay - if the Anonymous Authentication is enabled on your SMTP Virtual Server, then is port 25 open inbound on your firewall?

Check on http://www.canyouseme.org and test port 25.  You should see SUCCESS if all is well.

If that doesn't work - what did you change exactly, or what did you follow to eliminate the NDR attack?
