Hi, long time no post, but this time I have a real brain pain of an issue.
in a nutshell
we have an exchange 2003 server hosting mail for several domains (all the same company) they have an application that is on a non domain server and it has an SMTP presence (i.e. it can send out e-mail from the software)
I have created a subdomain for this software to try and maintain a degree of separation.
I have added the subdomain to the exchange box, and to our firewall and have added mx records for the subdomain pointing to the external interface of the server.
I have added a test AD account using solely the subdomain e-mail address.
I have also created a SMTP connector on the exchange server forwarding e-mail directly to the non domain server (ip address)
I can telnet successfully to and send via smtp an e-mail to this server, and can also send a test via “postie.exe” but if I try to send either externally or via localhost OWA, i get :

Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients. Subject: test e-mail via exchange Sent: 16/10/2007 15:56 The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

A configuration error in the e-mail system caused the message to bounce between two servers or to be forwarded between two recipients. Contact your administrator.
help would really be appreciated her guys
