Exchange 2003, can send but not receive

Hi Experts

users in the other office can send but can't receive emails, i used telnet to connect to their server and also used ehlo command to send a test mail but as soon as i insert "mail from:me@mydomain.com" and hit Enter i get error: "452 Insufficient system storage"

c:\ has 4GB free
d:\ has 60GB free

i dont understand why this insufficient storage error showed up

your help is very much appreciated

what is the size of your exchange database?
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

they are using ESVA vmware, i think it is the smart host

ok, do you have a smart host with a monthly or any kind of quota allowance? have you tried to check if you are still allowed to relay on that smart host?

both similar answers but 8 secs difference so awarding both.

apparently, we are using ESVA as smart host, it's a linux based and out of storage space.

so first solution to get everyone going again, is to change the firewall rule to point direct to the exchange server with port 25.

secondly, free up space on the ESVA server and undo the changes you made on the firewall

thank you
