Exchange 2013 - cannot send or receive mail. QUE only says submission ...

Everything has been working fine since I REDID the server from an intial intstallation. However, as of 10AM this morning, nothing is send or receive. I have rebooted three times. Compared it to another client's Exchange 2013.

This is one of the errors that keeps coming up:
Inbound authentication failed with error UnexpectedExchangeAuthBlob for Receive connector

I try to stop and restart the transport service, and the service will not start again once stopped.

If you created new connectors then if it isn't done correctly you will get the results you are seeing.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Yes it is on a domain controller. I got the Exchange server to send and receive but it only lasted 2 hours. I finally got it now to send to external. I have it able to send and receive internally.

Externally .. different story. External receiving does not work.

is the connection from the outside making it to the exchange server?
from the outside do you get a response on port 25 through telnet?

you can also try the remote connectivity analyzer

Telnet I get a response from just fine. Remote Connectivity works. no bounce backs.

ok...what happens when you send from something like a google or hotmail account to your server?  is it returned or delivered or seemingly go off in a black hole?

Have you got anonymous enabled on the default receive connector?
Did you install Exchange 2013 SP1? If so there is a known issue with transport, but if internal email is working then it isn't that.
It is something with your receive connectors.

It's CU3 not SP1. I even created new connectors. I thought it was DNS but not and then I tried the cert but no
