Morning all...

Maybe I'm missing something, I don't know, but a few weeks back I
stopped using the smart host feature of the SMTP virtual server and let
Excahnge2003 deliver its own mail to the internet because I had to
rebuild the gateway box. Unfortunately the Exchange server wasn't
(isn't) visible to the internet so when it tried to send to some
addresses, they didn't pass the PTR record lookup (different address
than listed) so mail delivery was denied. I have since rebuilt the SMTP
relay gateway, but can't seem to get Exchange to use it. It insists on
delivering its own mail.
I've setup the SMTP Virtual server correctly from it previous settings,
restarted the routing services, no joy. 
Any ideas?
