  • Incoming mail problem

    hi all,

    hope someone can steer me in the right direction? i have a little test system that i use win 2k3 r2 with exchange 2k3 on for my home mail.

    I recently removed the smtp connector using configure this server wizard and readded it.

    I had a working setup before i did this and i hadn't noticed i had broken it for a few days! opps...

    Now when i try to send mail to my email account : [email protected] i get the following return;
    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

    [email protected] on 31/05/2007 11:51
    The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason. Check the address and try again. If it still fails, contact your system administrator.
    <duaneville.co.uk #5.0.0>


    To try and fix this i have deleted my smtp connector and readded it tna. does anyone have any ideas?

    The only errors i get in my event log are the following:

    SSPI authentication attempt from 127.0.0.1 has failed with eroor 0x8009030c.

    But this is refering to the imap4svc service so not sure its relevent?

    All my services appear to be running as they should

    Re: Incoming mail problem

    SMTP Connector has nothing to do with inbound email, just outbound. So recreating the SMTP Connector will not resolve the problem.

    Looking at your DNS...
    http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsre...aneville.co.uk

    A few problems.

    1. I would not have set your MX record to be domain.co.uk - that can cause problems.
    In your domain host create a new host of type A, call it mail and enter your static IP address.

    2. Your server is announcing itself incorrectly.
    In ESM, Servers, <your server>, Protocols, SMTP. Right click on the SMTP VS and choose Properties. Click on the tab Delivery and then Advanced. Change the FQDN to mail.domain.co.uk.

    Is the domain in recipient policy?

    Simon.

      Hi,

      Thanks for your suggestions, i have made the changes but unfortunately still no luck, if by recipent policies you mean the Email-addresses tab in AD then yes this i have added [email protected] to there as an SMTP type, amongst a few others.

      Any other ideas?

        If I meant adding email addresses to user accounts then I would have said that. I don't say one thing and mean something else.

        Adding email addresses to the user account is not enough.
        For Exchange to accept an email you need to have the domain listed in recipient policy. Recipient policy is in ESM, Recipients.

        Simon.

          the domain is covered by the default policy, so yes its added to recipent policies already, i haven't added a policy for my .com domain as i just want the .co.uk to work at the moment, and as i said i've had it working before. i added and applied another policy just in case tna

            Have you tried sending email to yourself using telnet?
            http://www.amset.info/exchange/telnet-test.asp

            The domain is enabled in recipient policy?
