All replies


    i already have on the exchange 2007 an smtp connector with * address space and source server are my 2 nlb hub-cas servers and a cost of 10

    and on the exchange 2003 i have the same connector but with cost of 1

    i found out that when i create the exchange 2007 connector as i said the mails wont go from any exchange 2007 mailbox to the internet

    but when i delete that connector the mail flow goes very smooth!!

    i am still waiting for any advice about this wierd problem

    waiting for replies!!!

    Thank you

    I have one exchange 2007 server holding all Roles antispam module installed

    Everything was working great but after my ISP Deleted my dns records by mistake my server IP address was black listed for a week

    after been removed from the black list I cant send emails to outside my domain and having your exact same error messages
