This maybe a little more than you expect but please start monitoring your
Exchange environment and recording events and logs etc.

Use System Center Ops Manager 2007 or System Center Essentials if yours is a
small network. Put in Exchange management pack. One of the cool feature is
Synthetic Transactions. 


For example the Mail flow Synthetic Transactions would basically a test
email is sent periodically to test email functionality. There are two rules
for this monitoring. The first rule is an internal Mail flow connectivity
and the other rule is the external Mail flow connectivity monitoring.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Stupid Question


I had an issue this morning where internal email was working fine, external
emails where being received but receiving external emails weren't getting
through. Telnet worked fine to the server from the outside (although if you
sent an email it never made it to exchange) so I didn't think it was an ISA
server issue with a rule but I restarted both servers just to be sure and
when they came up everything worked fine.

First question is: Why did this happen?

2nd around here is, what happened to the emails, did they goto la la land?

#3 is what can I do about this to reassure people they get their mail? Can
an email be sent to 2 different servers at the same time? Or is the backup
exchange just for if the main server is down?


Let me know what you think,
