Hi

Your help would be greatly appreicated.

We have a new SBS 2011 server with Exchange 2010.

We have a number of remote sites that need to send emails relating to triggers from a raid configuration on dvrs.

The emails are sent via the Exchange server to a local distribution list with 3 members. However the emails are not getting to these 3 members.

I've configured the SBS Receive Connector to accept mail from Anonymous users from the various ip addresses at the remote sites.

Is there a way to check all incoming smtp traffic to this distribution list from these ip addresses, whether or not they hit the mailboxes?

Many thanks in advance

You'll want to enable Exchange message tracking to see the details of where these messages are ending up:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa997984.aspx

In my experience, though, it is usually just easier to use a 3rd party email account for these type of messages --- especially because they are originating outside of your internal network.   You can easily create a Hotmail or GMail account to send the notifications instead.
