Hi Dolly,

thanks for your help although the problem had a completely different reason:

When scanning through the IIS settings I saw that the mailboxes were registered 
with one wrong instance having a path which actually did not exist. That 
resulted in 
Exchange not recognizing the domain and complaining about not being able to 
to the mailboxes.

Now mailing withing the domain is running smoothly. Receiving mails from the 
via a pop3 connector is still being tested ;-))
