Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2000 can send but not receive.

The Exchange log shows a message trying to be delivered several times in
a row, after that the server hasn't received a single message.   Server
is SP'd and patched, no error in the event logs.  I can send and receive
a message from within the LAN, but not getting external mail.
Inetinfo.exe is not %100; actually the server is nearly idle.  Installed
Brightmail yesterday and the server was working fine until an hour ago
so it was running about 23 hours without issue.   I uninstalled
Brightmail anyway. I can telnet to port 25, shows ready.  DnsStuff shows
my MX record is good ( Firewall shows forwarding
to the correct IP and on port 25.   SMTP queues show green with nothing
waiting.  I've increased logging to the max and there's not a single
error or warning.   My MX record responds although slowly

Any help is appreciated.
