Hi!

I am running Exchange 2000 server. It's working fine for the past 6 months. But now I could not receive any mails.

When I send a test mail from yahoo, hotmail etc., they specifies that the mails sent , but i could not receive it in my exchange server . I could not find any bounce mail in yahoo or hotmail also.

All my exchange services are running properly. But Microsoft Exchange MTA Stacks is making problem, it is not starting . It show an error like
" Could not start the Microsoft Exchange MTA Stack service on local computer. The service did not return an error. This could be an internal windows error or an internal service error. If the problem persists, contact your system administrator ."

What could be the problem.

Thanks in advance.

At last, I received a bounce mail from yahoo that,
" Sorry, I wasn't able to establish an SMTP connection. (#4.4.1).I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long ".

Now please rely me, what could be the problem.

You have to ensure that the service starts up. SMTP should be running. Invesigate why they do not start up

I think you should check in the SMTP > Queue or maybe there's lots of spam in Exchange Drive (M Drive just an example) > Mailroot > VSi > Queue.

I just xperienced the same prob. and its help me.

are you recieving mail through and externel pop3 server, have you tried to telnet to your external server to see if they are finding there way there.

also try turning the logging to maximum on exchange server properties to see what shows up.

i had this problem and it turned out to be my access control restrictions on my smtp connector.

whether this helps or not i don't know.

Hi,

Can you telnet to the server on port 25 from the internet?

You might want to have a look at this tool: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=BC1881C7-925D-4A29-BD42-71E8563C80A9&displaylang=en
