I have a coworker that deleted the default web site. I loaded the same version of exchange on another server the typical mailbox CAS and HT, transferred the mailboxes over to the new database, made new send connectors and made changes to the receive connectors. I try to email xxxxxxxxx@vtext.com and receive an error which is 451 4.4.0 Primary target IP address responded with: "554 xxxxxx.vtext.com." Attempted failover to alternate host, but that did not succeed. I tried telnetting to myserver which works fine  

Trying 71.46.208.104...
Connected to mail.mydomain.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 MYSERVER.mydomain.com Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready at Mon, 2 Dec 2013 20:45:41 -0500
helo
250 MYSERVER.mydomain.com Hello [76.84.96.248]
mail from:me@mydomain.com
250 2.1.0 Sender OK
rcpt to:emailaddress@vtext.com
550 5.7.1 Unable to relay

At the end it says unable to relay I'm stuck and don't know which way to go. I've tried turning off the antivirus and restarting the transport service, making a new send connector. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you able to send email to another domain such gmail,hotmail or yahoo?

Do you use smart host or DNS to route the email out?

mx.google.com gave this error:

Additional guidelines for IPv6

The sending IP must have a PTR record (i.e., a reverse DNS of the sending IP) and it should match the IP obtained via the forward DNS resolution of the hostname specified in the PTR record. Otherwise, mail will be marked as spam or possibly rejected.
The sending domain should pass either SPF check or DKIM check. Otherwise, mail might be marked as spam.

Open in new window


On your Public DNS, please create a reverse proxy for your email domain address. Once done, please wait for DNS propagation, normally it will take 24-48 hours
