ASP SMTP webform partially not working

We have a webpage with a contact us form.  The form is configured to send email to an internal address and a hotmail address.  The hotmail address receives the notification, but the internal address does not.  This web server is also the SMTP server.  It's not joined to our domain.  I can see a bunch of messages getting stuck in the queue folder for IIS.  I've tried to send a message through SMTP to myself, but it fails.  I'm not sure if this is an SMTP or IIS issue?  Thanks for helping.

It's an SMTP issue.  Does this machine also host your e-mail accounts?  If not, is it possible your e-mail server doesn't accept mail from this machine?  Lastly, are there any error messages in the SMTP logs that can help guide you to a solution?

this is just an SMTP server.  There are no mailboxes.  I can confirm SMTP is doing what it's supposed to because I can telnet on port 25 and send myself an email.  It just seems to have issue sending to internal addresses to the company.  I can't decipher the SMTP logs.

You know THIS server can send e-mail so I'm guessing the SMTP server hosting your mailboxes isn't accepting e-mail from THIS server for some reason.  I'd look there first.

It turns out the messages were not making it to Exchange.  In fact, from my webserver, i could not telnet to my default MX, but could telnet to others.  I created a rule in my firewall to allow SMTP traffic to our default MX, and the messages quickly emptied from the IIS queue.
