Exchange issue

I have a client who just lost a baracuda device to a power issue and the device is not going to be replaced.  On the SBS 2003 server, I added an alternate DNS to point to our ISP provider and on the server services, I started everything under SERVICES under Microsoft Exchange.  The issue I'm having is that although I can sent email out and within the office, I can't get email from the outside.

Help!

Is there a router or firewall that has smtp traffic pointed to the old ip of the barracuda?

I'm assuming that it was.  this is a new client and they do not know how anything was setup by the last person.  I don't know because this is the first time our company comes out to the site.

try adding the barracuda ip as an alternate ip on exchange until you can figure out forwarding on the firewall

Sounds like the real solution is to adjust the port forwarding o the firewall

We no longer have the barracuda in the network.

Check the SMTP Virtual Server on the Exchange Server to make sure it does not have IP restrictions to only allow mail from the failed Barracuda and as suggested, make sure that your firewall points port 25 traffic to your SBS server, not the failed Barracuda.

Ah - that's a different beast!

Start> Programs> Microsoft Exchange Server 2007> Exchange Management Console.

Server Configuration> Hub Transport> Receive Connectors> Windows SBS Internet Receive Servername> Properties> Network Tab> Receive Mail From 0.0.0.0-255.255.255.255 (give or take a few internal IP addresses).  Authentication Tab should be TLS and Permission Groups should be Anonymous Only.
