Microsoft SBS 2008 can not receive emails, but they can send them. It has exchange 2008. It is a Dell T300 and we have tried restarting services, and the connectors seem to be working.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

SBS 2008 has Exchange 2007 I guess :)

Is this a new config or was working ?
Is Anonymous users checked on permissions tab on receive connector in EMC.

Ah you're right, SBS 2008 does have exchange 2007.. That's my bad.. :) Anonymous users is checked on the permissions tab. @Rancy I'll try the exrca.com. Thank you.

I just found out that 4 updates were done 3 days ago that killed their system. They were security updates that have to do with ActiveX it looks like. I'm going to try and roll back the updates and see if that cures it. If you guys have any other suggestions I would gladly appreciate it.

Thanks!

If you guys have any other suggestions I would gladly appreciate it - I have recently seen some updates screwing up stuff so its a good plan to Roll-back (remove those updates) and check :)

Did you reboot the server after uninstall ?
What do you get if you send an email or try Telnet ?

AS this is SBS, the first thing to do is run the fix my network wizard in the SBS management console. That will correct many issues.

agree with sembee2, SBS loves the wizards

if that doesn't help run the "Connect to the Internet" wizard located on the top under Connectivity Tasks on the SBS Console / Network / Connectivity page

We ended up scrapping the server completely.  Rebuilding it, then restoring from backup, that handled the issues.
