Cannot send mail to one domain.

  • From: "Steve Moffat" <steve@xxxxxxxxxx>
  • To: <exchangelist@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
  • Date: Tue, 8 Mar 2005 10:28:54 -0400

I cannot  send mail to the following domain, looking at the smtp log,
the connection is made, but after the initial handshake nothing happens
and any mail destined for it stays in my smtp relay queue..

If I use my gmail account then I have no issue. I am using Exchange 2k3,
and a win2k3 smtp relay. This is the only domain I am having trouble
with.

It is also Exchange 2k3.


Event log message: 

"Message delivery to the host '82.16.89.244' failed while delivering to
the remote domain '3soft.co.uk' for the following reason: The semaphore
timeout period has expired."

The haggis is unusual in that it is neither consistently nocturnal nor diurnal, 
but instead is active at dawn and dusk (crepuscular), with occasional forays 
forth during the day and night.
