SMTP rejected a (%4) mail from '%1' with '%2' connector and the user authenticated as '%3'. The Active Directory lookup for the sender address returned validation errors. %5

Did you have a previous RECEIVE connector working from the internet before? Or have you added a new one?

Have you restart the MS POP3 service? Possibly restarted the Exchange server?

Okay, can you verify that your Client receive connector is still there and none of the settings have been changed.

Your settings should be:

Network: Listening on port 587, receive mail from remote servers - 0.0.0.0-255.255.255.255
Authentication: TLS, Basic, Offer Basic only after starting TLS, Integrated Windows Authentication
Permission group: Exchange Users

When creating the new connector, what was the intended use for the connector? Custom, Internet, Internal, Client or Partner?

Abbasiftt,

1. Can you please a little more detail on this new connector, what settings have you configured, please attach screenshots if its easier.

I'm a little confused on your network setup, I'd be grateful if you could provide more info on the following;
2. how many Exchange servers do you have?
3. what is the topology of your network?
4. how are your client connected to Exchange? MAPI, IMAP or POP3? What port?

I would like to help, but at the moment I cannot visualise you network or understand how everything is connected.

Just to confirm now, that the clients (Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010) are getting the pop up?

Are they internal or remote?

From the client side, what ports are they connecting on for POP and SMTP? Are they secured?

within the network all are working fine, I am getting the popup only for branch offices. We are connected to all the branches by data line.

They are not secured but I will but a certificate today and install ecrtifictae.

The default install will create self signed certificates, I'm asking this as I want to know are your remote clients connecting via POP on 110 or a secured connection?

I also have to note that from the pictures you attached, you have changed all the default connectors to accept anonymous connections, whether this was a move to make it work I personally would advise correcting the permissions on each connector back to defaults, so that you understand what each connector does and what port.

At the moment you've created another connector but you know what other connector this is clashing with, do you get my point?

The receive connector, is typically designated for receiving emails from the internet on an anonymous connection.

Your connectors had a mix of permissions and security settings which were all over the place, I'm pretty sure that you've removed a tick box on the Client Receive or Allow POP connector that has allowed the server to correctly answer on the correct connector.

The following article will provide you with understanding and further reading on what connector is used for: http://www.msexchange.org/articles_tutorials/exchange-server-2007/management-administration/managing-receive-connectors-part1.html
