No incoming emails after SBS 2008 recovery

Hi, I have just recovered an SBS 2008 server using SSR 2011, and everything back to normal however no incoming external emails.

I checked port 25 was open on the hardware firewall and ran netstat to make the server was listening, and then when I checked service to check smtp hadn't stopped there was no sign of smtp.

So I installed it via the Server Manager, add features, and stopped and started the service, but still nothing coming through.

How about rerunning the wizard to reconnect to the internet?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

make sure you can telnet in on the following ports: 25 and 80, what firewall do you have if any?

I ran the Internet connection wizard again, but no incoming emails.

I downloaded the BPA, but before I ran it I saw in SBS Console > Networks that the POP3 connector is ON (MX record set to our IP) and Smart Host for Internet E-Mail is not configured, yet outgoing mail seems ok. I ran the wizard not to use a smart host but still shows as not configured.

Tried telnet mail.myclient.co.uk 25 and it could not connect on port 25, connect failed.

Try telnet the actual IP Address as well, make sure you have the port forwarding setup on the router so that Port 25 and 80 ports forward (NAT) to your internal Server IP address. is your e-mail coming in for the pop3 or exchange server?

Thanks, I changed the router at the same time as the server failed. The router had the ports open but was looking for the wrong mac address when I did the recovery. Corrected it and all working fine now.
