    It’s a strange thing, when I try to send an email to my address inside exchange, I obtain this error:

    Reporting-MTA: dns;
    Received-from-MTA: dns; wmail51 (
    Arrival-Date: Sun, 3 Apr 2011 23:19:36 +0200

    Final-Recipient: rfc822; [email protected]
    Action: Failed
    Status: 5.1.1 (bad destination mailbox address)
    Remote-MTA: dns;
    Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for [email protected]

    if I change the relay configuration in SMTP Virtual server (Access –> Relay restriction –> All except the list below), but I don’t want this configuration.

    Recently I’ve changed my Exchange computer, but for a couple of days everything is worked


    Re: Exchange 2003 doesn’t receive email

    The setting you have applied turns the server in to an open relay.
    The most common reason for not accepting email is that the domain isn’t listed in Recipient Policy, which is what controls the email domains Exchange accepts email for.

    Thanks for you replay Simon
    Really in Recipient Policies there is the Default Policy [e-mail addresses].
    In it was just listed @giben.local, not as SMTP address. Now I’ve added and everything seems to work.
    My only doubt is: I have another policy named Giben to set building rule for email address and here there was a line for in this format: %1g.%[email protected]
    It was not sufficient?


    Re: Exchange 2003 doesn’t receive email

    It is best practise to separate email address generation from the list of domains that Exchange accepts email for.

    Therefore the best practise is:

    – The default recipient policy isn’t touched.
    – A recipient policy for each domain is created, but with no filter, so it doesn’t apply an email address to items.
    – You then create a recipient policy to apply email addresses to the objects.
