  • Server Email errors with new SBS 2008 Server

    Hi All
    Well, my new SBS 2008 vanilal install is up and running pretty well. just a few niggling problems left to iron out.

    I have a global/catchall pop account which I have set to deliver to a distribution group with all the users.

    All my users are attached to the exchange server fine, and sending email ok.

    Nobody receives e-mail
    I get this error on the pop connector:

    Source: Windows Small Business Server 2008 Event ID 211 Cannot connect to the SMTP server "localhost" on port 25. The error code was 0x800ccc0f. Verify that the microsoft exchange transport service is running and that the exchange receive connectors are properly configured

    any help appreciated

    Many Thanks

    I have solved this, I opened Exchange and went to distribution groups and ticked the all users group to allow receiving of e-mail.
    I then reconfigured the pop connector to distribute to this group.
    all works fine now.
