All exchange services look like they are running.  When I try and send an email to another local network user it says you do not have permission to send to this recipient.  Weird that this happens for all users doesn't matter who is emailed.  Any help would be great!

First check that the SMTP server is running (both in [Exchange System Manager] and the [Service] mmc).

Other wise your have to take a look at:
1) the firewall
2) connectors
3) anti spam / blacklists (RBLS)

Is it only between internal users or also to external email addresses?

Okay, try take a look on your internet connector you can find it here:
Exchange System Manager > Administratuve Group > "First Administrative Group" > Connectors > "here you should have a internet connector"

Check configuration of this, for one if a smarthost is used (is it working etc.) or address space is everything accepted?

I forgot to ask - have it worked and is it just happened out of the blue, or has this server never send emails to the internet?

I think I found the problem.  The isp isn't forwarding any of our emails.  The ISP says we can send a maximum of 500 emails per day.  How and where would I check this on the Exchange server to find out what email account is maxing out our daily limit of 500 emails?

You will have to enable logging it the logs there is available isn't enough, but why don't you just deliver the mails directly? this is don by disabling the smarthost function!

Problem was solved by asking another type of question once I discovered the root of the problem.
