How is your send connector configured on Exchange 2010?  "get-sendconnector | fl".  

Is your send connector configured to use a Smart Host or is it using DNS?

Do you see anything in the event viewer?

you are talking about external email or all email that you sent ?


1. Have you looked at the Tracking Tool in the Tools section of the Exchange Management Console? This gives routing details and may show where the blockage is.

2.Have you set the connector for DNS MX or via a smarthost

3.Turn on the verbose logging to check for a little bit more details

4.Can you use NSLOOKUP to resolve the domain from your Exchange server? Is it all external email or email to one particular domain

5.restart the transport service

please share the output

To all,
 
I have managed to send email using the smart host connector pointing to the ISP mail server.

Why would my DNS / MX not working & how can I troubleshoot it?

Thanks

It is not working because you are blacklisted. -> this is from your logs "Your IP address was found on one or more block lists."

If you can continue to use your ISP's smart host to send e-mail outside, this would be better in most cases as the ISP's have a better rank on the internet.
