All this is urgent please help. While applying patches tonight I rebooted my exchange 2007 server and now I don't seem to be able to send messages to certain outside domains.

Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:
User One

It is happened to other external domain like yahoo.com or gmail.com?

It like that your try to send an email to distribution list at recipietn site. Could you make sure that it is user or distribution? if distribution, please make sure that you ask the recipint IT department to uncheck the "Request all senders are authenticate"

You may try to reinstall the patches at control panel. Reboot the server then send to " same recipient" and verify if message able to deliver.

Have you got any transport rule setup?

Have you also got any email filtering system like Symantec?

You need to enter the reverse DNS record for your sending IP against your domain name. Different organizations use different SPAM mechanisms and reverse DNS record is also used to check if the sending domain is a legal domain or not.

This is also known as pointer records.

Also, pls check at mxtoolbox.com for your domain if it is blacklisted. if yes, then you might have to change your sending server ip. Also, make sure that you have a A record with pointer created for the public ip address which is sending out email .. and it shud be created on a public dns server.

It seems that the reverse DNS for your ISP STMP sender is not resolved. Many SMTP hosts don't accept connection where reverse DNS fails.
