  • 550 Relaying Denied


    I know a similar tread exits, but i dont want to hi-jack it and it hasnt being updated for a couple of weeks, so i'll start my own.

    I'm having identical issues to the OP in the tread above and im not sure where im going wrong. I have created and new accepted domain, made the server authortative and created an Email Address Policy for the new domain. I also have the MX records changed and they are pointing to the correct server. When i send an external mail to the new domain and when i telnet on port 25, i get the 550 relaying denied error. Internally, all is OK and i can send out from an account using the new domain settings.

    The server has being restarted since the changes were made and when i type the "Get-AcceptedDomain" at the command power shell on the exchange server the new domain is listed.

    I should note, that we have a single exchange server setup, running Server 2003 and exchange 2007.

    Has anyone any thoughts on what could be wrong?

    Are there any recipients with email addresses for the new domain?

      Hi Joe,

      There was recipients configured. I have found out however that there is an AntiSpam firewall installed on another server on the network, which was acting as a smarthost. Once i added the new domain here, the emails came through fine.

      Thanks for the reply though.
