  • Can not receive external Email

    I have installed an SBS 2008. Everything seems to work ok except external email.

    Internal Mail works ok
    Accepted domain configured
    Email Policy Configured.
    Firewall is Off
    Accepting email on Port 25
    (now i have a catch all account doing pop3) Error is giving is 421 4.4.1
    either with small or large emails. no email is received

    When doing telnet servername 25 - it works ok. any command i type i get the 421 4.4.1 connection timeout. Please this is urgent if someone could help

    Since it is SBS, have you re-run the wizard?

    Please don't double post -- I have deleted your identical one in another forum

      sorry for double posting. I thought I posted it in SBS 2008 the first time after noticing it was Windows 2008.

      what wizard to run?


      Thanks

        Connect Internet and Email wizard -- about step 2 of the initial config tasks

            Ah, the good old "close all the windows and restart" solution -- very good thing Microsoft don't make aircraft systems
