Hi everybody,

After having done a migration from a SBS2003 server to a new SBS2011 server, i'm getting a strange pb, all mail sending from my users are stuck in smtp queue on exchange 2010 whith 451 4.4.0 primary target ip address responded with: 451 4.4.0 primary target ip address responded with 421 4.2.1 unable to connect error".

SBS2011 use a smtp relay with no authentification to relay mail (Internet Provider SMTP relay), the following commands are OK  from my server to the smtp relay :

telnet smtp.xxxx.yy 25
helo mydomain.com
mail from: myname@mydomain.com
rcpt to: test@yahoo.com
subject: test

Doing this the mail is sending without pb

I've also test DNS with nslookup with good results.
I've recreate the sending connector on my exchange 2010 ECM with smtp,*,1 and network configure to be smtp.myprovider.com with no authentification.

Networks and Internet SBS assistant have been done correctly.

Is there a Send Connector is it pointing to some Smarthost ?
Does the Send connector has the new 2010 server as Bridgehead server ?

Is your Router configuration and settings changed for the new server ?
If you have a router or firewall .... you need to enable it to receive emails from the HUB server and route external and same way to receive emails from external and be able to send to HUB for delivery.

I've just solved the problem, the Windows SBS Internet Send connector was not created correctly, after recreate it from sbs wizard and disativate the exchange send connector that i've created, the queue are empty, all the mail are gone.

Thanks Rancy
