You may have some DNS issues, take a look at your smtpsvc logs and see
if you're getting any connect errors. I don't think the Exchange server
in question host record is supposed to be in both zones, it should prob
only be in it's respective zone and the child domain should be
forwarding to the root. From most of the posts I've read on this issue,
it does seem to be a DNS issue. Also run the winroute utility and see if
it gives you any information.

Subject: [exchangelist] DNS and Exchange question

I have 3 exchange 2003 on windows 2003 all SP1 servers in 3 physical

I've been having problems with mail queues saying "the remote server did
not respond to a connection attempt" for mail on my internal server
queues, which I have yet to solve. 


My question is

MY company's AD DNS namespace is All my AD servers and 2 of
the 3 Exchange servers live in the DNS zone

The 3rd exchange server which is the routing group master lives in a sub
zone of called corp. (exchange

There is a Host record for the Exchange server in question in each zone.
Does anyone see this a being a problem, or could this be why I'm getting
the errors on my mail queues?
