Hey Luke,

Basically, you need to make sure that relaying for that particular
domain is allowed and configured correctly.  If this server is a SMTP
service on a server then click on Internet Services Manager, Default
SMTP Virtual Server, Domains, and look for the domains you want to
receive on.  
Here you might find and  You could just
continue to add the specific sub-domains here or you could use a
wildcard character as follows: *  

If you are on the Exchange server, open Exchange System Manager,
Recipient Policies, Default Policy (Or whichever policy you want to
Under the Email Addresses Policy, you will have to add, without
wildcards, the domains you are setting up to receive on.   Click on New,
SMTP address, type in and make sure the option "This
Exchange Organization is responsible for all mail delivery to this
address"  is checked.

Now to test, open a command prompt, & type
        telnet localhost 25
        mail from: bogus@xxxxxxx
        rcpt to: bogus@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

You should not get the denied relay message.

Good luck.

Hey all,
I originally had my users residing on serverA, so their smtp address
looked thus:
someone@xxxxxxx (primary)
Now, I have moved my users onto a new server (serverB), and have setup a
test user with the following addresses:
However, when I try to send an external mail to this test user, I
receive the following message:
*Server Internal IP* does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 5.7.1 Unable to relay for someone@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
My e2k servers receives the mail from our q-mail gateways.
Why is this??  I would really like to get the new server name in,
instead of the one that is soon to be decommissioned.
