Hi i am new to this so i appreciate your patience. I am running Exchange 2003 SP1 on a Windows 2003 SP1 server. I had my web hosting company set up the mx record so that my mail comes to my exchange server, this is working fine. But when i try to send mail to any adress other than bellsouth.net ( my ISP provider), it just sits in the queue until it times out. I think that my DNS srver is OK because all the workstations get their DNS info from the DNS server and i have no problem with web access. I am running McAffee 8.0 Enterprise but have turned it on and on with no effect, so i dont think it is the problem. I have included a screenshot of the System Manager queue in hopes that it will help. Thanks in advance for any ideas for the newbee.
