    My client is having an issue with Exchange 2003 SP2.

    Clients had SBS 2003 Std SP1 with Exchange SP1. I've applied Exchange SP2
    last week.
    They currently have an email address
    They were from New Zealand ,now moved to Australia. Therefore, their old New
    Zealand emails are forwarded to Australia account.For example, all emails
    going to will be forwarded . Never
    have any problem before.

    After installing Exchange SP2 ,I set up the Intelligent mseeage filtering to
    block spams,and it worked. However they can't receive any email from NZ. So
    I turned off Intelligent message filtering form SMTP virtual server , still
    doesn't work..... In the event log, there is no sign of blocking anything
    either...In the Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\UCEArchive , none of the messages
    are from ......

    I have no idea where those emails are going.......

    Appreciate your feedbacks

  2. HI Geoff,

    Without some real domain names and/or valid email addresses, it would be
    hard to trace from here. (and you don't want to post email addresses).

    Do you have another SBS you can send from, and use message tracking in ESM
    to see where it's going?
    Any NDRs returned to the sender?
    Are both email domains hosted on the SBS, or are they hosted elsewhere (ISP)
    and picked up by pop3?
    You might try this link, and see what it says:

    Thank you so much...

    I actually found it is nothing to do with exchange sp2.. just somehow
    firewall stuffed up and rejecting all email from that domain.....bazaar!!!
    after i reset it it is fine now....

    Thanks again, your info was very helpful to trouble shoot the problem in the
    first place
