Subject: [exchangelist] Port 135

I am having a problem where email to certain domains is failing with the
error "Domain does not exist".  Now, we are able to send this mail from
an outside source, i.e. hotmail, with no problem.  In my firewall, there
is an error about packets getting dropped that coincide with the email
errors.  The Firewall is reporting "Packets dropped: RPC Mapper".  So,
what's the deal?  Do I need to have Port 135 open through my firewall
for the RPC? Any ideas?
