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:

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.
