Subject: [exchangelist] Cannot send or receive messages for a local

The Exchange 2000 Server has been set up for 2 SMTP domains (similar to
mulitple SMTP Domains on Exchange 2000 on,
Jul 10 
and according to - 
unformtunately in German).

However, the primary domain XY seems not to be recognised by Exchange
when you 
send messages from user1@XY to user2@XY, as revealed by the following
logging messages:

Source: MS Exchange Transport
Category: Queuing Engine
Event: 4004
"Categorization failed. The error message is: the specified domain does
either not exist 
or cannot be contacted."

and another similar message:
"Message delivery to the remote domain XY failed for the follwoing
reason: the 
connection was dropped by the remote host".

However, sending messages from user1@XY to anyuser@any_outside_domain is

working. Receiving, however, is not working at all.

Looking forward to advice,
