When you did the telnet test, did you do it from the Exchange server or from
a workstation?

And you have published the Exchange server via ISA?

Hi there, I seem to be having a problem ever since we changed our internet
account over. We used to be using a PPPoE connection through our router as
to avoid problems with ISA trying to deal with a dynamic IP. However, since
we changed this evening, my mail will not go outside the local network. Our
ISP was enforcing port 25 filtering which was removed when we switched to a
static circuit(before this, we were relaying mail through their SMTP
server). Any outbound mail is now getting hung up in the SMTP connector. I
pull up the connector which has status of retry and find messages. They all
say queued with a 0 count on the failures, so this tells me that there is no
connection to the receiving SMTP server, my logs show nothing useful. I can
however, telnet into other SMTP servers outside our network, that tells me
that our ISA server is not filtering out the SMTP connection. I seem to have
run out of ideas at this time, probably forgetting the most basic of things
at this point, maybe this is either telling me it's time to go to bed and
deal with it tomorrow, or to just put another pot of coffee on. Any help
would be appreciated. TIA - Marc
