  • Exchange 2000 ,, cant receive email from outside world.

    Thanks to some of the post here , I was able to fix my problem, maybe my screwup can help someone else.

    DONT LEAVE YOUR RELAY OPEN EVEN FOR ONE DAY!!!!!!

    Your life will be hell deleting all the spam stuck in your que and your bad mail directory, your boss will hate your, your fellows employees will get mad, your family will not see you until you get it fixed, and you will lose the rest of your hair.

    and by the way dont turn off access to the smtp server in system manager while trying to stop spam and forget to turn it back on.

    The telnet post to exchange thru port 25 is what reminded me what I did, I could not telnet into my exchange, pop3 and owa web access was working. smtp was not accepting any mail from any source. live and learn.
