Newbie to Exchange server! Last night got the update security patch on my server, it rebooted, everything is fine except I cannot receive emails. I can send no problem. I check to see if the SMTP service is running and it shows it is. I do not have any ports blocked I do think. Any ideas?

I am not sure how to do this. I honestly have not done a telnet since my unix days years ago. Any help is really appreciated! Thanks!

X-treem's test is a good place to start.  To telnet to a remote host click start --> run type cmd then hit enter

Once at a command prompt type:

"telnet hostname 25"

Once you see the banner for your exchange server enter the commands like X-treem suggested.

If you are running windows 7 or vista you will need to enable the telnet client.  Here are instructions for that:

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Are you able to receive e-mail from internal users?  Check the receive connectors status and settings.  (under server config - hub transport).   What version of exchange are you running?

Sorry for the delayed response, my dog of 11 years passed away I had to take care of that.

I checked the connectors but I do not know what it is I am exactly looking for. The telnet session showed no problems. I am able to send out no problem from the Exchange server 2010 and Outlook port25. I am unable to receive from Outlook. I am unable to send email from my SQL database now as well.  Is this an authentication issue maybe needing port 587 to relay? I am lost, my developer is stumped, exchange guys, its boogling our minds.

What should I be looking for in the send/receive connectors? Help needed please! Calling all EXPERTS!

Turns out it was a 'state 14' error. That could mean a mess of things. without the suggestion I may not have gotten to the bottom of the issue. I have abandon the Exchange server for another solution using form mail.
