Intermittent Email Bounce back on Exchange 2010


Im just testing exchange 2010 but having a slight issue:

when sending emails to the domain the sender is receiving intermittent bounce backs. I would say 50% of emails are going through fine but the other half are bouncing back with the following error.

Delivery has failed to these recipients or distribution lists:

There does not seem to be an MX record for that domain(reported by mxtoolbox.com)


You say you have sent emails to them before? Maybe they are switching to a new hosting provider or something, at minute without an MX record they will not receive any emails from anyone...

This tool shows a valid MX record -
http://www.dnsqueries.com/en/mx-lookup.php - mail.debtspecialists.co.uk

Can you contact them to ask, if they are changing hosting companies it could be a DNS propagation issue where the record hasn't updated over the world yet...

i have just checked for a mx lookup on mxtoolbox.com and it found it.


EDIT -  I have just done another check for mx record and it didnt find anything this time. Emmm confused !!
Very strange yes!! I also checked now and MX record exists!

I'd contact them direct and explain the situation, maybe they are working on an issue...
PlancomAuthor Commented:
I've emailed them and explained the situation. Lets see what they say

Thanks for your help so far.
PlancomAuthor Commented:
They have reset the DNS settings to force them to re propagate and its working fine now.
