Exchange 2010 will not send or receive

I have a new install of Exchange 2010.  I have set up the users and can connect to their mail boxes.

If I send an email either internally or externally it simply drops to the out box and sits there.

ExRCA is testing Exchange ActiveSync.  
  The Exchange ActiveSync test failed.
   Test Steps
   Attempting to resolve the host name in DNS.
  The host name resolved successfully.
   Additional Details
  IP addresses returned:
 Testing TCP port 443 on host to ensure it's listening and open.
  The port was opened successfully.
 Testing the SSL certificate to make sure it's valid.
  The SSL certificate failed one or more certificate validation checks.
   Test Steps
   ExRCA is attempting to obtain the SSL certificate from remote server on port 443.
  ExRCA successfully obtained the remote SSL certificate.
   Additional Details
  Remote Certificate Subject: CN=Circled-DC01, Issuer: CN=Circled-DC01.

Who is Participating?
Glen KnightCommented:
You don't need it the SMTP service, I didn't want you to install this.

IPv6 should not be disabled.

If the server is a DC it MUST also be a Global Catalog server, is it?
Glen KnightCommented:
So you have setup the accepted domains and send connectors to send mail out of the organisation?

Have you tried sending via webmail? What happens?
Shivkumar SharmaOperations Delivery ManagerCommented:
The send connector in the exchange organization should have the exchange 2010 server which you have added in the source server list.

Also to receive  emails from all the users over the internet make sure the Default receive connector on Exchange 2010 hub transport server has "Anonymous" checked in the permissions tab

Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
I have setup the send connector.

Webmail drops directly to the drafts box.

Assume I am an exchange idiot.  I have always used SBS which comes pretty much setup for idiots.

This is my first time installing exchange stand alone.

Glen KnightCommented:
Ok, under Organisation Configuration > Hub Transport > Accepted Domain.

Do you have one configured?
Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
Oh yes, I did that as well.  

I have both mydomain.local and

the is set as default

Glen KnightCommented:
Can you check the services console for any service that start with Microsoft Exchange are started if set to automatic?

Also check the event viewer for any errors.
Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
Yes, all services set to automatic are running.  There a few set to manual that are not:

IMAP4, POP3 and monitoring
Glen KnightCommented:
Any errors in the event log?

Under toolbox can you open the queue viewer.  Does it show any errors?
Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
Nothing is queue viewer.

Event viewer shows The Microsoft Exchange Mail submission service is currently unable to contact any hub transport servers in the local active directory site.  The servers may be too busy to accept new connections at this time.

Tip of the day #59:

You can import CSV files and treat them as objects by using the Import-Csv cmdlet. Each row in a CSV file becomes an ele
ment in an array, and each column becomes a property. You can assign the CSV file to a variable, or you can pipe its con
tents directly to another cmdlet. In the following example, there are three columns in the CSV file, Name, Alias, and Em
ailAddress, with several rows that the ForEach cmdlet will cycle through. The data in each row is used to create a new m
ail contact.

 $CSV = Import-Csv
 $CSV | ForEach { New-MailContact -Name $_.Name -Alias $_.Alias -ExternalEmailAddress $_.EmailAddress -OrganizationalUni
t Users }

Glen KnightCommented:
OK, did you by any chance install the Windows SMTP role?
Have you disabled IPv6?

Does the server use a valid windows DNS server for its DNS configuration?
Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
IIS is installed and configured and is greyed out so I can not look at  what is installed and what is not.

IPv6 is not disabled.  Should it be??

It uses it self as DNS.

One thing.  This server IS a DC.  While installing exchange the preinstall wizard told me it had to be a DC but I didnt think it COULD be unless it was SBS??
Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
Ah yes, SMTP features now installed.  I had not done this yet.

Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
It is

Curtis LongAuthor Commented:
I had only 900 meg available.

Fixed and all is working.

Was a combination of many things.

Thnaks sooooo much for your help and patience.
