You need to be clear which version of exchange is that one. If it is older than 2003 then probably you need to allow the IP of the server the webserver initiate mail send.

If it is exchange you need to allow relay permission on Exchange 2007/2010/2013.

Receive connectors are limited to the server they are configured on. If you have two Exchange servers that a website is sending from, you need to make sure that the Receive Connector that allows the web servers to send to Exchange exists on both Exchange servers, otherwise only one server will accept the messages.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Hey Chi-Ltd,

So you have two servers that are assigned with the Hub Transport role?

To verify open EMC >> Server Configuration >> Hub Transport. Make sure both servers are listed in the top middle pane. This will confirm they are both Hub Transport servers.

Secondly, how are you load balancing mail to the two servers? Do you have a load balancer?

Are both Servers specified in the Send Connector?

EMC >> Organization Configuration >> Hub Transport >> Send Connector tab.

Not sure how many Send Connectors you have but assuming one. Go to its Properties and look at Source server tab.
