Is port 25 open and forwarded on your router / firewall to your Exchange Server?

Are your domains MX records pointing to the correct IP Address?

Is Anonymous Authentication enabled on your SMTP Virtual Server?

Are all your Exchange Services started?

You need to make sure that external DNS servers know to send mail to your server by IP.

Assuming your domain is "owned" by an ISP or hosting company, and that you are using a NAT router, you will need to put the external DNS of your network as an A record for a subdomain into their servers and also create an MX record pointing to that subdomain. Speak to support at your internet provider and they will probably talk you through it or do it for you.

e.g. a mail.xyz.com 123.123.123.123
mx xyz.com mail.xyz.com

Also you will need to open port 25 on your router to forward to the internal IP of your mail server.

I assume mail is bouncing, so I would send some test messages and check the headers to see where they fall down.

Hope this helps a bit

Have you also configured "Recipient Policies" for exchange 2003?

What is the history here?

You mentioned a failed server.  How was the new server installed?  Did you install it in recovery mode?

Download, install and run the Exchange 2003 Best Practices Analyzer tool and see what it reports:

Then you need to setup your Recipient Policy to stamp the mailboxes with the correct External Domain and not leave the default email addresses as .local.

Either that, or your email addresses are not using the default Recipient Policy and have that option unticked on each mailbox.

Alan HardistyCommented:
Are you using a Fully Qualified Domain Name from the PC's or the IP of the server?

If you used an FQDN, can you try its IP address please e.g., telnet 192.169.2.2 25

Any better?
