I had this the other day on E2K after applying MS Security & Critical
Updates to Bridgehead Connector Server...

Try this...

.... on your bridgehead, go into ESM and drill down to
"<Server>/protocols/smtp" and go into properties for "Default SMTP
Virtual Server".... goto "Access" and "Relay", and check "only the list
below", then ensure that all your mailbox servers are listed and allowed
to relay through this bridgehead server.....

.... it worked for me... hope it helps you out.

Subject: [exchangelist] 550 relaying denied madness

Can anyone shed light on the "550 relaying denied error"? Our company
just installed the Symantec for SMTP Gateways and exchange 2003 on
seperate machines on our network. Incoming mail is fine. Outgoing mail
making it to some domains. However a few domains (earthlink, sbcglobal)
are rejecting our mail saying the 550 relaying denied error. Anyone have
any ideas on this? COuld it be a firewall issue (ISA Server)? Or...
for any attempts to help resolve this.
