    Okay I am having problems with an Exchange 2003 setup. We are having problems with SOME of our outbound emails but not to other. I.E. if I send an email to [email protected] it works fine if I send an email to [email protected] or [email protected] I get either an 4.4.7 Delayed error that reads -

    Subject: Delivery Status Notification (Delay)


    This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

    THIS IS A WARNING MESSAGE ONLY.

    YOU DO NOT NEED TO RESEND YOUR MESSAGE.

    Delivery to the following recipients has been delayed.

    [email protected]


    Or the email just never shows up at the recipients at all. Currently it seems to be affecting aol.com cfl.rr.com and Earthlink.net but it may bve even broader than this as like I said sometimes it does not deliver an error but the email never arrives.

    Any thoughts? I looked into this MX records thing that is posted but I'll be honest I don't know where one would setup an MX record or what information you need to set one up and 2) wouldn't that be hard to setup an MX record for each domain your sending emails out to?

    It has been my experience that Earthlink has recently been having problems with their email servers (something about upgrading to smtp auth). And just in the last two days it is almost impossible to send emails with Verizon.net. They are having problems with their smtp server as well.

    I would agree with you but in the same instance I get one not delivered from mydomain.org to [email protected] I am able to successfully send one from [email protected] to the [email protected].

    This is not making sense and I just seemed to get a ton of issues within the last week when the last 2 months prior there was very few.

    Just wanted to let everyone know I got the answer -

    http://www.amset.info/exchange/smtp-connector.asp

    What had happened was a DNS change had been made and this knocked out our existing connector causing a few DNS sites to not be resolved.

    Using the information below I added a secondary connector to our ISP's email system to forward the email out that way. Sure enough all the "delayed" emails dumped onto my cfl.rr.com accoun the second I added it on.
