Hi all and thanks in advance,

I'm having an issue with a SBS2003 with exchange 2003.  I've set up a new web domain name which we are going to use within the recipient policy.  They already have several domain names so nothing new but, with the new domain name I'm getting a bounch back saying the connection is refused.  This is coming from the external ISP "4.4.0 - Other network problem '[Errno 61] Connection refused'".  Now this domain name isn't setup any different to the other domain names but this is only happening with the new domain name. 

I am running Sophos PM and I have set that up as the others as well.  The only thing different to this domain name to the others is a different DNS host but I can ping and telnet to the address and get the same response as the other domains.

I just don't know what else to do and they are trying to roll out the rebranding with the new domain name and this is holding them back now.

Regards

 

Tim

    Things to look at - SPF records for the Domain MX Records are correct - and return to the right location Certificates on the server have the NEW Domain details These are a good place to start.

    Thanks for that, SPF isn't a problem MX is fine and the certificates are updated as well But I this have the bounce back. Any thing else? It looks like it's the sbs server itself but I can't understand why this one's not working and four others are fine. Regards TIm

    I've also disabled Sophos PM to eliminate that and it's not the problem

    Can you confirm where you have entered the new Domain etc? Exchange Gateway - Hub transport etc???? Can you post the headers?

    I think I have worked out what is wrong. This is something with the DNS hosting when you ping the mail.domainname.com it shows the mail server IP address but if I search for DNS records it's not shown a MX record and when I've traced an email it goes to the web site IP not the mail record.
